Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is dark reddish brown with a nice cream colored foam and nice carbonation. The aroma is roasted malts, dark fruits, licorice and caramel and in the background a spicy bitterness with coriander notes. The taste is full bodied and malty, with some fruit and caramel notes from the aroma and it ends with a light bitter aftertaste.

mgajdaczewa (1231) - Katowice, POLAND - JAN 2, 2016
W aromacie guma balonowa, karmel, raczej na słodko, ale nie mdło, ok. W smaku silne uderzenie alkoholu, karmel, cukier, nieco gumy balonowej, jeszcze mniej przypraw. Trochę mdłe. Na dodatek lekkie żelazo. Niezbyt udane piwo.

Pivceps (9) - SERBIA - NOV 4, 2015 does not count
Was not excited about smell. A bit butyric acid, slight sherry. Not so good head retention. Also would like a little bit more CO2. Taste haves interesting cherries in it. Nice balanced sweetnes and bitterness. Great beer, but not in my favorites list. Worth trying.

It has a reddish tinge and a reasonable light brown foam. Smells wonderful of malt and fruit, but the smell is not particularly significant. It actually tastes really good fruit, toasted malt and hops bitterness is very nice balanced with the other flavors. The hops do not steal the taste of fruit and malt. I think that it is a great and lovely ale.
