Feinschmecker (202) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 15, 2009
Fruity yeasty apple aroma. Amber color. Spicy, malty bitter but light on the palate. The alcohol is definitely present. A little watery. Not the worst Belgium but no way near the best.

Been after this one since initially trying it in KL back in April 2010. Had a feeling it would be disappointing; here goes...

Mahogany-amber color leaves my glass filthy with white head & lace. Smells like disappointment. Taste wreaks of artificial fruit sweeteners, though it's not cloying. Not awful, yet still a ways from being acceptable. Bleh.

I drank the 33cl bottle version of this beer a couple of time, its very dark amber color and the almost orange top always looked very promising, but in both the occasions it reminded a more alcoholic but less complex Vieille Cuvée, and way less sweet which can be good for many people. I find it lacking a distinct note in the aroma department, especially if served chilled as suggested. Not bad at all, but better wait a while to let it "open" a bit.

Shain (80) - ISRAEL - OCT 27, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2014 10/27/2014 Bottle, 330ml. Pours clear dark amber brown with a medium tall beige head. Aroma of sweet malt, fruity, berries, lightly woody. Medium bodied with a creamy mouth feel and soft carbonation. Tastes mostly sweet, very slightly bitter, maybe too sweet. Flavor is very fruity, with some sweet malt, wine flavors, strawberry, orange, spice, gentle herbal-fruity hops, light roastness, woody notes. Very nice with a complex flavor and interesting, warming, pleasant, but slightly too sweet without balancing bitter or sour flavors, but not too heavy and not at all cloying, nor sticky. Very smooth. I liked it quite chilled, but it develops nice flavors as it warms. Very good brew, and easily available. Old rating: Nice golden color with a small off-white head. Sweet fruity scent. Nice tingling carbonation on edge of tongue, then a nice foamy mouth-feel. Sweet roasted, fruity taste, pleasant alcohol taste is present as well. Turns to slight bitter-sour fruity taste, with some sweet wine quality to it. Short, sharp and very clean ending with a very nice, slightly sour alcoholic after taste that is nice to keep for a while, and highlights the tastes in the following sip.
