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.

Moolesen (223) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle 75cl. Brown with a beige head. Aroma’s of banana, dried fruit and some malty tones. Nice taste where some sweetness in form of dried fruits and malt are mostly dominant. Hints of spices. Quite high carbonized. Medium length.

Pours a deep brown color with a lasting tan head. The smell is fruity, yeast, brown sugar. The taste is as it smells with a dry hoppy ending. Light/ medium in body with tight carbonation.

ESPh (84) - 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.
