Dark amber with an off-white head. Nose: Malts, grain, hints of caramel. Taste:caramel, grainy, Malts, syrup, unwanted sourness (small). Bit fury, with a sweetish touch. Mediocre, at best. Did like the label...

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
One of those Bouillon beers themed around life in the Ardennes, this one with a light beige, very thick and rocky, moussy head, stable and sticky, and a deep copper colour, perfectly balanced between light and dark, misty. Yeasty aroma, some citric acid (almost certainly an infection), walnuts, caramel, honey, sherry, vanilla, lemon peel, figues, mint, cloves. Crisp fruity taste with again that citric sourness, drying the palate, built on a caramelly malt base which becomes stronger and nuttier as the palate progresses, some floral hops in the end. Hadn’t it been for the souring infection, this would have been one of the best Bouillons I had so far.

Een bier met een goede smaak, niets uitzonderlijks, maar een smaak dat de meeste mensen wel lusten

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2nd Beer in a random tasting evening at my house on 30 May 2013 (only me here).
33cl squatty bottle (BBD of 11/2013) into a Westmalle chalice, sediment and all: looked like a Westmalle Dubbel, it was clear until the last bits flew out the bottle to give the beer a duller, fuller look.
As I studied the art work on the bottle label I sniffed my beer: chilled too much, so hardly any aroma. When the beer warmed a little I got plum loaf maltiness and toffee esters.
The taste is fairly sweet, plum loaf again, but with raisins and dark malty molasses all mixed up within a bowl of yeasty alcohol. I like sweet brews, so this did the trick for me: it’ll be too sweet for some, as most Belgian Brunes tend to be.
Body wise and mouthfeel: fine, depth suited the brew and alcohol strength.

Amber brown body with beige head. Looks nice. Cherry sweetness, very prominent, and caramel malts to go work it. Taste isn’t as sweet, but also less rich, unfortunately. Red berries and dough. Foamy mouth feel. Decent brew, with an excellent profile. (33cl bottle from Bierparadijs)

flytteøl#1 (packing all my beer down bf moving to another flat was too tempting, had to rate a few)
33cl bottle from beerplanet.
muddy brown, large fluffy light brown to offwhite head.
Flavor is nutty, yeasty, slightly spicy, nutmeg, faint slightly sourish notes, quite messy imo - but drinkable. The spicy-yeasty thing is a bit too much. not really my kind of beer - but a seminice dangerously looking babe with a sword on the label (btw. did she shit her pants?).

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brown-reddish coloured beer. Head seems ok, sticks good to the glass, maybe should hold a bit longer. Nuts, dark fruits, hops and malts. A bit simple it seems, but not to bad.
