Sparf (106) - Östersund, - NOV 6, 2011
Dense, fruity aroma with a cellar like tartness. A touch of perfume. Damp/wet(sic!) and thin body. Almost stale, surprisingly enough since the head smells fresh and is alright. Subtle and elegant. Aftertaste is quickly disappearing and mildly bitter. A light and qualified craftsmanship but not a sublime beer. 2011-10-27

sfuen03 (305) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUL 6, 2014
Pours dark amber liquid, average sized off-white quickly diminishing head. Malty aroma, sugar and red fruits. Soft body, average carbonation. Alcohol very well masked. Tastes a little weird, with lots of spices. Complex but not very well balanced in my opinion.

NeoHippie2 (907) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Slightly hazy amber pour. Aromas of malts and yeast. Flavor is pretty mild for the style. Subtle malt sweetness and a touch of dried fruit. Decent but nothing spectacular

oliodnb (242) - ITALY - MAY 30, 2014
33cl bottle. Cloudy amber, white head. Smells of bready malts, lots of belgian yeast and some sourness, unripe berries. Similar taste, very light hops, no bitterness.

L_inconnu (58) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Couleur "thé froid" (genre ambrée, mais pas très belle), surprenant et pas très rassurant. Mousse légère, un peu trop à mon goût. Au nez, on ne perçoit presque rien (une ambrée industrielle en somme), pareil pour la bouche et le palais. Donc pas mauvaise mais tout sauf exceptionnelle.

GSAP (465) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2014
Beetje hard en rommelig in veel opzichten. Smaak is bitter en zuur, nasmaak ook meer zuur dan bitter, als een slechte Granny Smith appel. Geen fijne noten van zoetheid. Met het aroma is het helaas ook zo gesteld. Ik kan hier niet veel van maken. Ziet er wel aanlokkelijk uit met blijvend kraagje op subtiel troebel oranje.

Renobob (564) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAY 11, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Bière sans grand intérêt. Agrumes et sucre candi détectés.

bieremoi (31) - FRANCE - MAY 2, 2014
Very light amber color pours with two inches of head. Nice aftertaste, but does not manifest unique qualities from other strong Belgian ales. Resembles a trappiste but doesn’t make me want to get it again. Nice beer on its own but doesn’t distinguish itself enough from its peers.

jvhemert (328) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2014
AROMA: leather, iron, bread, APPEARANCE: amber, hazy, frothy, white foam, TASTE: light sweetness, medium bitterness, PALATE: medium body, thick feel, lively, astringent, long finished OVERALL: nice amber, except for the hints of iron that are quite sharp.

Raisin, liquor, yeast. Rich Plum, cake, oak, dry sour finish. Nice Belgian amber, quite crispy and fruity.
