Cloudy amber beer. Big tan head that tastes of oaky butter cream - yum! Semi soft dry palate. Vanilla oak and banana. Peppery spice. Trace of bubblegum and aniseed alcohol. Dry finish. If not for the spice this could pass for a dessert beer. Tasty Dutch treat!

Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Paul for this beast. Pours unclear amber with a bibbly tan head. The aroma holds lots of fruits, some bread, melon, berries. Big sweet flavor with lots of gummy fruits, berries, a bit of bread and toffee. Full bodied with fine carbonation; lightly chewy. Sweet finish with a menagerie of fruits, some tropical, more melon. Very tasty stuff.
