One of the best beers of brasserie caracole. Much more complex then the saxo, so that makes this beer my favorite beer from this brewery.

Overall a decent beer. Not much to look at in terms of color and head. Good ripe fruit flavors.

Miksu (5030) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2015
0.33 l bottle from Firma Bier. Amber color, sparking with big bubbles. Aromas of orange, toffee and musty yeast. Taste of toffee, bread crust and orange with some earthy and musty yeast notes. Carbonation is a bit sharp at first, but swirling the glass softens the palate. I rarely praise these Belgian amber beers and this one is no exception. Toffee and musty yeast are fairly dominant flavors giving this a humdrum feel.

Banane caramélisées sur lit de levure, une belle bière dans la tradition belge. Forte, belle couleur ambrée, peu de mousse.

4/8/2009 4:44:17 PM Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Murky orange body with thin line of head. Sour nose. Quite carbonated and prickly mouthfeel. Some grass and herbs in the flavour. It’s quite high on the ABV, if only in taste, and has tartness in the finish. Enjoyable.

stevoj (3108) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle from Tres Bonne Cuisine. Lively bottle, had to get it in the glass right away at, initial high airy, foamy head. Murky brown pour with lots of particulates. Sugary sweet, yeasty aroma. Lots of sweetness in the taste, plums and molasses. Slick body, but kind of thin. Lingering sweetness.

una delle prime birre assaggiate da jhonny,che viene riassaggiata sempre da jhonny a distanza di 5 anni! purtroppo non mi ha convinto..l’aroma "si salva",abbastanza tipico da ale belghe,ma nel gusto c’è una componente che sinceramente non sono riuscito ad identificare,che l’ha resa non eccessivamente piacevole..al prossimo assaggio!
