L’aspetto è davvero notevole, con uno splendido colore ambrato ed una fine schiuma a coprirlo. Al naso principalmente caramello, ed anche in bocca la parte più dolce domina la bevuta, ma in modo equilibrato così la beva scorre molto bene.

Koyu kahve renk kırık kahverengi köpük, köpük kalıcı olmadı. Koku topraksı ve karamel ağırlıklı. Kompleks değil ama oldukça başarılı.

Young vs. Old side by side, 2013-12:
Pleasant sweet fruity aroma. Light palate, crisp carbonation. Sweetish malts, quite caramelly, touch spicy, gentle hops in the finish. Covers the alcohol quite well, even though it’s got some headiness.
Similarly fruity, slightly sweeter, alas a bit of tomato to it. Smoother palate, softer carbonation. Sweet almondy body. Pleasantly aged influence to the malts, sweeter, and more rounded, plenty of caramel. Hops more restrained, clearly old, only some bitterness in the late finish. No alcohol at all, not even headiness.

Pours smooth, color is a reddish-brown with a cloudy look to it. I pick up a sweet note from the fruits. Taste is a yeasty dark malt with a banana, caramel finish.

Dark brown, light reddish in color. Taste is sweet, malty, with a complex spicy finish. Very aromatic, with a very smooth and excellent taste profile. Gotta have for any Belgian strong ale fan.

33 cl. bottle poured in to a tulip. Cloudy, deep amber colour with a huge, off-white head that settles in to thin cap. Sweet aroma with yeasts, spices, fruits, light liquorice and a hint of alcohol. Caramel malts. Taste is sweet. Medium to full body with a creamy texture, soft carbonation. Finishes sweet with overripe fruits, spices and a hint of alcohol. Good, flavourful and subtle.

I’m not a huge fan of amber ales but this one is very enjoyable with the taste of caramel and multiple fruits. Not to sweet or watery. Well balanced.

Aroma: Honey, gum, banana, toffee and nougat. Appearance: Cloudy copper with a bubbly tan head. Flavor: Nose + a bit more toffee/nougat, there’s some almond nuttiness toward the finish. Really, the flavor evolves and sometimes comes off as sweet, other times with more pronounced banana and pear. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, effervescent carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A bit weak in the nose, but a fascinating and complex beer.
