3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle 25 cl) Michael Jackson sometimes refers to this as "one of Belgiums secret delights". As soon as you get the cap off you may understand why. This beer has the most wonderful spicy nose. Darkish brown caramel-like appearance. The caramel continous all the way through but never making the beer sticky or cloying. On the contrary it’s fresh and rather dry. And very malty. Quite full-bodied for the low alcohol. 110194
