Brune acajou, pétillance légère, col beige clair, fin et persistant. Maltée d’entrée, épicée mais pas trop, fruitée grâce au sirop de Herve dont la présence n’est pas du tout envahissante, ce qui lui donne une bonne douceur. Seul regret, le manque de corps...

Murky brown with a ring for a head, C, aramel malt and candy sugar aroma with a trace of alcohol. Body is medium, carbon high and texture slick. Taste is sweet with modest bitterness. Palate is dominated by candy sugar and ripe fruits. The finish is sweet. B@H

Donkerbruine kleur, redelijke schuimkraag. Ruikt moutig en zoet, bosvruchten. Smaakt heerlijk, karamel, bosvruchten. Heel goed in balans, lekker biertje!

Dunkelbraun, viele Schwebeteilchen, der wenige Schaum ist schnell verschwunden. Blumig-florales Aroma, ziemlich unbestimmt. Im Geschmack zu süß geraten mit kräuterigen Elementen, die mir nicht zusagen. Unterdurchschnittliches aus Belgien!

Flesje in een cafe restaurant in Limbourg, België. DonkerroodBruin. Ruikt wat metalig in het begin en later wat vaag fruitig, mout en stroop. Smaakt idem, wat zoetig en weinig bitter. niet veel nasmaak en ook niet veel body.

Swaroga (1250) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2013
33cl bottle. Dark red and brown with small grey head. Nose : strong aromas of peer and malts. A bit of caramel. Sip : medium thick body and oily texture. Quite good carbonation. Sweet with cooked fruits notes. Dominating peer and caramel. The beer is tasty but not complex. I like the texture.

Sweet albeit metallic aroma. Thick, somewhat peaty, shame about the dominating metallic flavour.

22/VII/2012 - 33cl bottle @ Erwin’s place - BB: 4/12 - (2012-744) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the bottle!

Little cloudy red to amber beer, small off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: sweet, caramel, very spicy as well, little chemical. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: spices, little fruity, sweet, cough syrup, very sugary. Aftertaste: spices, sugar, overripe fruits, bit syrupy. Original on the spices, but too sweet in all.

Benzai (7220) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2012
33cl bottle @ home. Slightly unclear dark copper to red-brown color, average sized off-white head that diminishes quickly. Smell malts, raisin, dried fruits, slightly caramel and slightly brown sugar. Taste is better than expected: quite a nice balance between malts, overripe and dried fruits, again raisin, lightly alcohol, light to moderately sweet and maybe indeed a hint of pear. Medium carbonation and medium body. Quite nice.

33 cl. bottle sampled @ Bier Circus: dark brown with a slight red hue & tanned head, smells sticky sweet, pear (mainly), prune & touch dark berries jam, lots of liquorish, hints of chocolate, taste is lots of liquorish (drop), pear syrup, black candy, sticky dark malts, molten black sugar, prunes, seemed like a good mix but this was really a messed of concoction of lots of liquorish (in a not very fun way) & pear syrup, sticky body
