PalCabral (138) - SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle from Jumbo, Aveiro, Portugal. Pours "dirty" brown with a head that quickly disipates and leave only a few islands of scum on the surface. Not a looker. Aroma is mainly sweet from yeast and the tastes follow suit, with some vague roasted notes. For being a Bruin/Brune this is a very plain tasting beer, mainly influenced by the yeast.

ESPh (95) - Branchburg, New Jersey, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Picked up a four pack based on the rating. Pours reddish brown with a white head. Feint aroma of malt, cherry, yeast. Taste has malt, dried dark cherry, maybe a little plum with crisp carbonation. Not terrible but definitely overrated.

Colour is between red en light brown. Bittersweet taste with some plum and raisin details. Good beer, but not d’Achouffes greatest work though.
