3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer has a dark red to brown color and a nice cream colored head, with a lot of bubbles. The aroma has a rich palate of herbs, roasted malts, hops and dark fruits. The taste is full and round with clear tones of the malts and hops. The finish slightly sweet by the dark fruits and also has a light bitterness by the hops. A very nice brune, I like another one.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A flowery aroma. I was surprised to find out that I tasted some sweet, ripe melon in the beer. Also some thyme is noticible. A light bitterness in the aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strongly phenolic, lightly estery nose, malty with notes of toast / bread and brown apple. Creamy and soft in the mouth, lively carbonation, savory, a little salty, finish of toasted grain and something akin to nutmeg spice. Rich textural experience, highly effervescent but not at all bracing. A light burn of alcohol in the finish at 8.5%, but it has good depth.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours a deep brown with off white head. Aroma is strong caramel malts. Taste is deep, dark and fruity with lots of dried fruits, smooth malts, caramel, fudge and molasses. As normally expected from Dupont this is an exceedingly drinkable, flavoursome bruin.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
’Massive ale’ version of Moinette, with thick and firm, off-white head; aroma quite complex, fruity, some saison-like yeastiness and ’barnyard’, dark malts; malty taste, dried fruits, yeasty spiciness, warming alcohol in the finish. Quite complex, much harder to find than the blonde one, but another great ale of one of my favorite Wallonian breweries.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Appellation Wines, courtesy of AshtonMcCobb, thank Ash! Pours kinda clear, but with a chunky amount of floaters from the off, was a near-gusher. Clear copper, except for the thousands of black bits floating around. If the head hadn’t stayed around, it would have been a 2 from me. (Sorry for sounding like an X-factor judge there). Aromas are red fruit, Belgian yeast, caramel. Taste is more of the same, with spice coming out a bit more. Medium body, oily to slick texture. Lingering spice finish. Builds nicely.

Een lekker donker bier met veel smaak aan zoals het hoort te zijn. De blond is wel nog beter vind ik
