Bottle. Pours slightly hazy, brown in colour, white head. In aroma caramel, some fruits, bretts. In taste hoppy bitter, malty plus fruity notes. Bretts also present in taste. The beer in overall was quite similar to Orval (note that I drunk this after some time, hops in aroma wasn’t that present). Very nice beer.

(Bottle) Reddish brown colour with brief, foamy head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, dried fruit, raisins, prunes, dark bread, hay, citrus peel and spicy hints of wild yeast. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, raisins, prunes, dark fruit, orange peel, perfumy flavours of wild yeast and a balanced spicy/citric bitterness in a finish with a slightly vinous edge. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Interesting beer, quite complex and tasty with a balanced touch of wild yeast. Very nice.

brewerale (66) - - FEB 6, 2015
Marrom avermelhada com muita formação de espuma densa e consistente. Aroma com notas adocicadas de frutas frescas e secas, e caramelo, além de tabaco, especiarias, frescor do lúpulo e levedura belga. No paladar o lúpulo é mais forte, depois surge tabaco, especiarias e frutas secas. O malte compõe o conjunto. Corpo médio com final longo, um pouco seco e adstringente, e traz no retrogosto bom e equilibrado amargor. Ótima cerveja!!!
