Belgian fruity aroma. Taste is also fruity. Not many flavours and aroma. Good but a little plain and boring.

huineman (400) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 2, 2015
Pours cloudy ruby with thick tan head. High aroma is berries (raspberry and strawberry); liqueur, a hint of liquorice. Also chocolate, butterscotch and vanilla. Very powerful but so well balanced it feels fresh. Full body.

rdb84 (304) - NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2015
Bottle. Cola pour with a generous mocha colored foam head. Aroma holds the middle between Speciale Belge and an abbey double. Prune, dried apricots, pepper. Licorice permeates. First sip is very metallic, copper. Subsequent sips remind of a stout, but a little fruitier (apricots, mocha, hint of coffee). Bitter, creamy development. Aftertaste is stout, prune. Ok.
