3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish brown colour, small cream head. Aroma of caramel, dried dark fruits, light spice and yeast. Flavour rather sweet, dried fruits, light milk chocolate. Finish chocolate milk, caramel and dried plums.
Quite OK beer, much better than the Loteling Blond.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 330ml, aged 4.5yrs. Dark chestnut brown with faint cream head. Sweet and fruity dark beer with noticeable alcohol accent. The fruitiness is likw a sweet Dessert wine, full of grape and pulp, the alcohol gives it a nasal quality. Finishes quickly, worth giving a try.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at ’t Boshuisje. Ruddy brown color, lacy beige head fades. Sweetish caramel nose. Tastes fairly sweet, faint bready sourness and light bitterness. Fruity esters are faint. Caramel-sugar aftertaste. Very drinkable, but a bit "light in the ass" as my friend said.

Not sure of how old it is but it pours with a mighty head. Aroma is nice, dried fruits mostly raisen. Taste is still hoppy with a decent bite and rounded out quite well with nuts and sweet grapes. Impressive.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled in 1984, sampled in 2005. Like magic dave said, the beer really tasted like a Flemish Sour Ale. So of course sour, but also quite malty with some wood in the finish. Very nice after all those years.
