I had it from the supermarket Del Haize, Brussels or it can also be found in many pubs in Belgium. Classic Belgian Ale taste

drdisque (570) - Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2014
From a bomber bought in a grocery store in Brussels, poured in a snifter. Pours slightly ruby cloudy dark brown. Aroma is suculent fruit. Flavor is great well balanced dark fruit and malt party with clean slightly dry finish. Great brown Belgian Strong Ale.

ShivanDragon (1802) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2014
Dat ik deze nog niet gerate heb ?... schenkt helder rood/bruin met bruin/kaki kraag. aroma van caramel maar niet zo bijzonder, tevens lichte gusher, toch iets te lang bewaard onder niet al te gunstige condities. redelijke bruine suiker zoetigheid, licht bittertje, zwak fruitig van rozijn en ander donkere fruiten, caramel, maar een medium body, ietwat dun zelfs van textuur, en lage co2, mwaahh deze is nou niet één om weg te zetten ...

chromeotaphor (51) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2014
Zoetig aroma met weinig diepte gang. Matige schuimkraag die snel weg trekt. Lekkere felle carbonatie met kruidige zoetig bittere smaak en afdronk. Mooie balans maar niet al teveel palet

Teran (20) - Belgrade, SERBIA - NOV 5, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2014 When you see rings of foam on the glass, that’s it! In mahogany color, caramelized plums and toffee, little bit thin but strong, which is interesting sometimes when we are talking about brown ale. Newcastle Brown Ale in higher class! In Belgrade fine shops it is possible to find it regularly. Tried in Belgian chalice.
