*** bottle was 2 years past expiration date ***
Pours a clear amber beer, beige creamy head. Smells like caramel, pear and banana, most likely due to itís age. A pleasant mouth feeling, still enough carbon. Tastes fresh and little sour at first, continues to a sweet malty taste with caramel. Aftertaste is a little sweet, roasted malts and some acidity, again: maybe due to itís age.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber with a small cream head that laces well. Aroma of caramel, red berries, flowers, citrus. Taste has quite rich caramel sweetness and fruity hop bitterness. Tastes weirdly like sweet black tea. The slight yeast taste and texture is I guess what youíd expect of an English-style beer made in Belgium. Finish is a little too fruit sweet for me, although the hints of sourness are quite nice. May not have travelled terribly well.

Bottle 33cl. A yellow amber ale with a huge head that remains properly. Smell is very nice on hops and malt. Aroma is very nice too, wonderful hop flavor and bitterness, nice malt and sweetness, finish is caramel like and with a long harmonious bitterness and floral notes. Nice experience.

Long time ago had this one, wrote the following down:
Pours a tiny head.
No smell, strange enough since the taste is full, hoppy, light bitter, hint of spices and nuts,

Bottle in Leuven. Darker than your average pale ale. Good balance. Nice enough, but not outstanding.

Good beer, not exceptional, but rich taste, longlasting foam and a nice colour. (In Belgium) not 6%, but 5,8% alcohol.
