UPDATED: AUG 8, 2007 33cl bottle, purchased at a grocery store in Antwerp
Clear brownish-red color with a tan head. A little sweetness, some cherries and brown sugar and maple flavors. Simple tasting, one dimensional and uninspiring. Lacking the requisite spiciness and yeast (totally filtered). Passable.
