3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2015 deep amber with a dusting of off-white head. Aroma is apple-strawberry tart, some dusty mineral notes, hints of candy strawberry-raspberry syrup, caramel and toffee. Body is medium weight, oily with moderate, medium-fine coarseness carbonation, considerable prickly burn. Flavor is very odd - mineral, earthy mushroom, some caramel, spicy herb, bread crust, raisin, nice balance between toasted bread and light herbal bitterness in the aftertaste. An umami blast, weird. A refreshing take on a Belgian Ale! Delicious aroma, interesting flavor, but not wholly appetizing.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours amber to brown colour with a small, unstable head. Aroma is a classic belgian bouquet: a hint of banana and cloves, a lot of caramel, raisins, peach, spices. Taste follows the above with extremely well hidden alcohol and nice, herbal bitterness in the finish. The beer is somewhat light and easy drinkable, thus quite treacherous. For those who like classical belgian styles a must try, for the rest it may seem a bit too tame.
