Floreffe Melior brune, à 8% d’alcool. De couleur brun foncé assez opaque, cette bière dévoile d’emblée un collet beige pâle onctueux et épais. Au nez, la banane, le sucre brun se mélangent parfaitement. En bouche, ces goûts explosent et on dénote également des arômes de vin de madère. Belle effervescence, bon goût sucré, et aucune amertume. Les amateurs de Maredsous et de Delirium, Nocturium seront ravis. Ma favorite, sans aucun doute, de la collection Floreffe. Bue dans un verre Tulipe à 6 degrés, elle fut très appréciée. Cheers!

Hansen (6784) - Assentoft, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2003
Big, lasting head. Dark, black, unclear. Something odd in the aroma, esters?. Flavor: Lots of laqurice and some bread too. Real good.

edward_violet (63) - Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Lovely. Pours a brownish amber, maybe better called an amberish brown? Aroma of anise... taste of anise too... labeled to advertise such, which is why I selected it. Caramel and roasty malt character. Slight alcohol, very slight ginger-like notes. Some soy sauce. Will buy again. I love anise, and this has the strongest anise character of any beer I know of. (I’ll withdraw this statement once proven wrong.)

orzech (48) - Resovia, POLAND - NOV 1, 2013
0.75l bottle. Very dark ruby color, marvelous light beige head. Aroma of cherries, honey, spices, wood and alcohol. Complex dry flavor, sour yeastlike notes, dried fruits, caramel, some burnt and sweet malty notes. Really dry and sour finish partly due to high carbonation. Magnificent!

garrison (777) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2008 Purchased for me by my loving girlfriend Nancy at ’Jungle Jim’s World Market’ in Fairfield (a suburb of Cincinnati), Ohio - This one pours a VERY dark brown brew with a light tan head of foam and a complex anise(liquorice)-fruit aroma. Tastewise, tis is a complex mingling of fruit and malts, with subtle hops over-and-undertones. This IS a great beer!
