Nice but uncomplicated. The lack of stimulation to the tastebuds lets it down a little, but strong and pleasant enough to enjoy. Whether I choose to drink it depends on the alternatives my free house has to offer.

I am really impressed with this beer. It comes off as very modest and reasonably priced. We opted for it because there wasn’t much at the local supermarket that we hadn’t already tried and we were looking for something new. It has a strong flavor of toasted oats, but not as strong as a porter or even a stout. It is mildly sweet, but without that residual sugar taste left on the tongue that can sometimes be off putting. If I were to compare it to a more mainstream variety, I’d say it’s similar to Negro Modelo, with more intense caramel and oat flavors.

Not bad for a Belgium bier. Aftertaste is a tad heavy, so it doesn’t get high marks from me.

Absoluut geen aanwinst voor onze o zo mooie biercultuur, vind dit bier allesbehalve een meerwaarde voor ons o zo mooie land.
Proef hier vooral heel veel suiker en zeker en vooral een bier dat gebrouwen is om snel te verkopen. Heb dit bier vroeger als puber echt veel gedronken.

Another Belgian classic, drank it since I was a kid. Dark brown with reddish tint, off white small head. Only hints of dried fruit and caramel. A bit mediocre taste, sweet, nuts, fruity. Medium body, weak finish. Not my favorite.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep nut brown with an off-white head and good lacings. Aromas of artificial dark chocolate, malt and candid-sugar and some faint hints of dried fruit. Light carbonation, somewhat slick and a medium-full body. Malty sweetness with hints of chocolate are dominating with a very faint bitterness lurking around the corner after a good while. Medium lasting finish.

Bottle. Dark reddish-brown, clear and fizzy with a full frothy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and caramel along with fruity notes of plum and resin. Taste is light sweet with a bitter finish. Flavor is fruity and roasted as well, with a well noticeable alcoholic touch and I had some metallic notes as well. The body is medium to thick with medium carbonation and some alcoholic warmth.
