friejose (24) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 11, 2002
Loved it in the glass and on the nose, unfortunately, it lost something once it made it to my mouth. Somewhat insipid mouthfeel, and pleasant enough taste, but a quick finish.

guzgorog (385) - FRANCE - FEB 21, 2015
Brune avec des reflets rouges, mousse beige qui se tient bien. Nez de raisins, prunes, cerises, alcool, épices, levure. Bouche complexe quoiqu’un peu masquée par le coté sucré, le côté épicé, poivré domine, malts légèrement torréfiés, raisin et prunes très murs, alcool, levure. Légère amertume. Corps puissant. Bonne bière.

TheCaptMatey (146) - Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Dark amber to brown colour with a thin white head. Aroma of dark fruits, bubble gum, caramel, and soft herbs. Flavor of caramel, honey, herbal hops, and a bit of alcohol. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel with a sweet finish.

Vinx (76) - ITALY - JAN 20, 2015
Hazy amber color with a white vanishing foam. The aroma is mainly dominated by the fruity esters and the phenols produced by the yeast which really is a belgian one, then by the malt caramel sweetness. Sweet, smooth, average carbonation, middle bodied (due to the use of sugar). Not bad but it lacks somehow in personality.

cloudy reddish-brown color; funky, fruity, Belgian yeast aroma with caramel malts; nice roasted caramel malt base with fruity, spicy Belgian yeast notes; well balanced

Cluniac (68) - - JAN 17, 2015
Aroma is sweet, probably yeast mixed with caramel or maybe some fruit like apple. Appearance not the best- 2 finger tan head on a muddy body, but dissipitates quick and with large carbonation bubbles which is not as appealing. Taste is malty, mostly bread. Palate feels a bit too light, not creamy enough. Bit of spicy hoppy aftertaste.
