Ruby amber liquid with a foamy off white head. Fruity malt and earthy yeast aroma. Fruity flavors with mild spice. Nothing stands up and take notice. Quite standard.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2003 (bottle conditioned) Reddish-brown unfiltered hue with a caramel malt and fruity date or plum nose. Full bodied and hugely malty with a bitter complement. Spicy, peppery warming alcohol finish. Recommended!

Large beige diminishing head. Red-brown body. Aroma; nice!, sweet, caramel, raisins, plum, spicy, hops/citrus, alcohol/rum. Medium body. Taste; sweet, fruit/plum, spicy, caramel-bitter finish. Can't help thinking of Het Kapittel Prior and t'IJ Struis when I drink this...

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow, I am impressed. I was exspecting the over cabonated dry exprience that I had with Saxo, but this is a horse of a different color. Huge head, that I have come to exspect with La Caracole brews. Aroma is dusty raisen and yeast. Flavor is quite spicey, with black pepper and corander. A very nice fuzzyness on the palate, finishes sharp and clean. Top Notch.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew whose cork was dated 10/2002 poured a very invigorated head. Pour only 1/4 glass of this one or it will foam up and over flow your mug in no time flat! It had a large light brown head of small bubbles. Its body is a yeasty cloudy dark brown with a lot of carbonation rising. It had an aroma of hops and malt. It was initially bitter and had a strong after bite, but its bitterness was not so strong as to ruin the smoothness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This one pours a dark, murky, brown color with a medium sized, mostly lasting, tan head. The aroma is malty and sugary with hints of plums, molasses, and brown sugar. Very smooth and full bodied with moderate carbonation, the flavor is fruity, yeasty, and spicy with lots of caramel and malt flavors. The finish is long and sweet with a bit of toffee and alcohol. Good beer.

The cork on this bottle was dated 10/2002. This brew poured an excellent head. The aroma was fruity, citrusy, and sugary. It had an aftertaste that seemed to linger in my opinion.
