3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, with date 4 II 2016. Brown with ruby reflexes, clear. Slightly brown head with small/medium bubbles, starts with thick layer, but dropping to minimum (but not disappearing entirely) and leaving some lacing. Aromas: fenols and spices, some milk chocolate. High carbonation, rather light bodied. In taste: little yeasty sour at beginning, leaving some earthy bitterness behind. A regular belgium dark ale - decent one (especially that it’s a large scale product), but not something extraordinary.

Bottle in Glasgow. Opaque dark brown beer with a beige head. Nose is roasted grain, sugar, lactic, slight malt, dark chocolate, fruity esters, candy sugar. Taste is lactic, milky chocolate, stout flavours, candy sugar, roasted malt, dark fruit esters, prune, raisin. Really surprised by how good this is, considering it is produced on a large scale.

Fresh & effervescent to start followed by some big Christmas cake flavours. A lighter example of Belgium ale. Not much yeastyness.

Bottle 0,33l; clear dark ruby body, light brown head. Aroma like wheat beer - sour yeasty, but when is head gone, is nice fruity - plums, dark berries, dark cherries, red currant . Taste is sweet with dark fruits, nuts, chocolate, grains, caramel, dark malts, hints of alcohol, some herbs. Sweet aftertaste. Soft carbonation, smooth oily texture on the mouthfeel.
Delicious, I enjoied it!

Copenhagen 28/12 2014. 75 cl bottle from Irma. Pours reddish dark brown with off-white persistent head. Aroma is sweetish with clear notes of alcohol. Medium to low carbonation provides soft mouthfeel. Taste is spicy and sweet with notes of caramel and aftertaste is yeasty and tinged with alcohol. Industrial and commercial - but quite ok.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wheat beer aroma with a nice tangy lacquer note. Pours rich dark mahogany brown with a tall tan head with tight bubbles. Complex, light sweetness, some nuttiness with a sour astringence that lingers on the tongue. Fizzy with a slick mouthfeel and long lingering finish. Interesting.

Looks brown. Smells a bit brown and more belgian bubblegum and fruits. Tastes the same. Nothing too great but a nice belgian.
