butelka, warka do 10/09/16. Slicznie prezentujace sie w pokalu piwo - bursztynowe z miedzianymi przeblyskami, bardzo ladna (choc nie jakas bardzo wysoka) i dobrze trzymajaca sie piana, zostajaca na szkle. Aromaty to glownie przyprawy (czuc po trosze i cynamon i gozdziki i kolendre - na szczescie przyprawowosc nie jest wysoka, dominujaca, jest wyczuwalna i nadajaca kierunek a nie zagluszajaca inne aromaty) i owoce (sliwki suszone, swieze brzoskwinie). Jest tez chyba troche karmelu w tle. W ustach slodkie, aromaty sie potwierdzaja, czuc dodatkowo nieirytujacy alkohol. niemale, lekko poszczypujace w jezyk wysycenie. Bardzo fajne. Cho zarazem niewatpliwie bez wysilku mozna znalezc w tym stylu lepsze

Klarowne piwo o czerwonej barwie i obfitej pianie, która zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w postaci sporej warstwy na powierzchni. Aromat przyjemny owocowy z nutą chmielu. W smaku słodkie, lekko drożdżowe, ziołowe. Goryczka średnia, przyjemna, szlachetna, krótka, ziołowa. Ogólnie bardzo udane belgijskie piwo o pięknej barwie i bardzo dobry smaku i aromacie.

Red color with garnet highlights. Very beautiful. And quickly disappears. The aroma has just poured the beer is very powerful. Bright berry flavors, raisins and a little alcohol. Beer should definitely give a breath. After standing in a glass five minutes

Tognetta (531) - Campinas, BRAZIL - OCT 19, 2015
Marrom avermelhada, espuma de boa formação, abundante, de longa persistência. Aroma adocicado licoroso, uvas vermelhas, morango, framboesa, maltada, alcoólica. Paladar segue exatamente as impressões do aroma, evidenciando o dulçor maltado/licoroso e o álcool. Corpo médio e carbonatação leve com o passar do tempo. Aftertaste novamente lembra a frutas vermelhas bem equilibrado com o malte. Achei o álcool não muito bem distribuído. Com o aumento da temperatura fica mais aromática, mas tive uma leve sensação aguada inesperada, talvez em função do teor alcoólico, mas ficou ainda mais gostosa

akilburn1973 (2) - Tarneit, AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2015 does not count
Poured a 330ml bottle into a chimay goblet. A: A clear reddish amber with a magnificent off white head that replenishes well. S: Caramel, raisins, toffee, plum pudding. T: Slightly sweet with banana and cinnamon notes. Superb dessert beer. M: Beyond creamy, slightly oily, wonderful. O: One of my favourite beers, I always come back to it, especially in colder weather. Superb Strong Belgian Ale.

LazyPyro (221) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2015
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours an amber brown colour, with a thick creamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet/fruity, with orange peel, coriander, roasted malt. Taste is the same, strong alcohol presence. Full bodied. Alcohol taste is quite strong in this, so I prefer the Vieille Cuvée.

Aroma: Phenols, banana, bit of caramel, maybe dried fruit. Appearance: Dark amber, head dense, high, nice lacing. Taste: Very sweet, Belgian esters, banana, clove, some alcohol, caramel. Palate: Body is high, finish is sweet and alcohol, carbonation is too high, not easy-drinking.
