2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
25/11/2010 - 33cl bottle @ horeca expo 2010
Clear bright yellow to somewhat golden beer, big creamy head, dissipates fast. Little adhesive. Aroma: very faint, mainly sweet, some alcohol and some spices (probably from the rum). MF: ok carbon, light to medium body, watery to syrupy texture. Taste: a sh*tload of sugar, some sweet malts. Aftertaste: more of the same: sweet, then some spices and in the back of the throat some alcohol. I don’t think it’s the rums fault this beer sucks. It wouldn’t be very good without the rum either.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur dorée, mousse fine de tenue moyenne. Je n’avais pas remarqué que c’était une bière au rhum aussi quelle ne fût pas ma surprise lorsque je l’ai goutée. Il y a quelque chose en commun avec les bières au whisky. Malheureusement, elle est trop sucré et celà gache tout. Trouvée à Vanuxeem- Ploegstaert.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours out of the bottle with a big white head on a golden body. The head sticks nice at the glass, colopases maybe a bit to soon. Smell is malts, spices, some sweet fruity. Very sweet, a bit earthy taste. Fruits and spices, malty. Don’t like it really, the taste is to much sweetness, unbalanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 33cl. A clear golden beer with medium head. Smell is sweet, deep and honey like. Nice syrupy ale quite sweet with fruity and malty flavor, intense and long orange sweets smell note of vanilla and spices, well balanced. A nice triple beer near to Westmalle ones. A good experience, better than expected.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The low scores given don’t coinside with me . This stuff was no worse than many other beefed up , boozy ,golden Belgian ales; ,A little soulless and predictable but nice enough. Has a very rich sweetness, caramely , that is united with spice and fruity peach like esters and lot of dryness. Eazy goin’ sipper.

Bottle at home.
Clear golden beer with a huge lazing head. Aroma modrate to heavy malty (caramel, spicy notes of coriander and fruit). Flavor is very sweet. Body is quite thick. It’s much tripel like. I didn’t taste the rum either!
