2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
At Gollem in Antwerp-Belgium, 0,33 bottle shared with markoijelena. Courtesy of Sam, thank you sir. Pours coffee-bean colour with reddish appearance, medium-low ivory cap. Nose is toasted malts, slightly grassy. Mouth: high carbonation, roasted-burnt grains, bitter overall palate. A bit boring and not a beer I would reconsider drinking, although all in all ok.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bit weird vinegary first kick on nose, but its gone before second sniff. Very lovely brew. Bold, same time subtle. Strong malty background, awesome dried fruit implementation, some hops for balance. Mostly sweet with light bitterness. Well balanced and enjoyable. Feels bit like little cousin of westy and rochefort in a good way.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Popeye in Tokyo. Served in a stemmed tulip. No head upon serving. Rusty amber color with strong muscat aroma. Alcohol forward beer with a thin, watery texture on the tongue. Grape flavor really jumped out after coming to room temperature. Awesome, awesome Belgian.
