Bottle from Beers of Europe. Hazy amber with medium beige head. Aroma of apple, orange, peppery spice, yeast, earth. Not overly sweet with good hoppy finish. Very pleasant.

POLK (2155) - Hørning, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2014
The scent of yeast and alcohol. rather classic example of a good, solid and well-brewed Belgian ale which is not surprising. alcohol, sweetness and Belgian yeast flavor dominates the picture. Amber sweet amber ale with lots of alcohol warmth and flavor of prunes.

Icedwarf (270) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2014
Licht bruin bier met schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en krachtig. Bramen, drop en anijs. Blijft redelijk lang hangen

jspronck (25) - BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2014
Hazy amber color with off-white head, aromas of yeast and malt, alcohol is noticeable, light bitterness and sourness, average to lively carbonation, short slightly bitter finish. Overall, a good beer but a little too similar to other beers of its kind

sfuen03 (316) - 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.

Bona cervesa, es bastant equilibrada i gustosa. Buena cerveza, es bastante equilibrada y sabrosa.

NeoHippie2 (937) - 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 (257) - 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 (473) - 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.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Bière sans grand intérêt. Agrumes et sucre candi détectés.
