Bottle 33cl. Ruby coloured with a big fluffy off white head that fades very slowly. Aroma is not very easy to pinpoint. Not very sweet, raisins is what I can recognize best. The taste is quite good. Some bitterness and sourness stride for your attention. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Robe de couleur rouge rubis, mousse couleur crème, nez de baies et autres fruits rouges (un peu de cerises). La bière est carbonatée et semble mi-mince. Bouche très ronde, beaucoup de sucre d’orge avec la levure en retrait (une rareté chez les belges), et un brin d’acidulé en finale. Alcool pour ainsi dire absent. Une belle bière, pas aussi spectaculaire que certaines de ses compatriotes, mais plutôt agréable.

Bottle @ The One, Brugge. Dark red with a thick frothy head. Comes in a glass without a round base and requires its own wooden eggcup hole to keep it upright. Blonde in style with a recognisable nose that includes a small darker fruit sweetness, but not too much. Has a similar taste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear dark red with a medium tan head. Aroma is of sugar, floral, light esters, and plums. Tastes of light gum, sugar, banana, caramel, and plums. This beer felt like it could be quite sessionable despite what it is. It just had such a refreshing fruity taste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33L bottle. Pours hazy red-brown with a big tan head. Aromas are bready malt, caramel and roasty. Flavor is mild sweet, with some candi sugar / toffee and bready malt, but quickly going to an herby hop and roasted malt bitterness. Medium body with a thinnish mouthfeel and active carbonation. Overall, a decent bok beer. Good balance of malt to bitterness, but nothing special. Cool glass, though!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of dark malt, caramel, dark fruits, raisins, candy. Flavour is medium sweet with a hint of bitterness in the long finish. Smooth and full. Still a bit too sweet for my taste. Otherwise okay Belgian take on the Bock.
