Bottle of 300 ml at home. Colour is dark copper/light amber. Head is one and a half finger tall, beige ion colour and froathy.Minimal activity in the glass.The head leaves some lacing behind. Aroma of fruits, yeast, some caramel and some hops. Taste is sweet, with some pear and light caramel flavour. On the body is average thick. Carbonation is also average. Overall a very nice beer in an affordable price.

(on tap) Clear golden brown with white loose head. Pleasant but subtle aroma - caramel most significant. Light body, fizzy but ok carbonation. Flavour was caramel with some subtle interesting notes. Overall an easy drinking, somewhat different beer.

20/VII/2012 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: VI/12 - (2012-728) Thanks to Martinus for the bottle!

Clear amber beer, fizzy crackling creamy white head, pretty stable, adhesive. Aroma: sweet malts, caramel, pretty fruity, banana, strawberries, little chocolaty. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: malty sweet start, citric hops, bit bready, pretty bitter. Aftertaste: sweet malts, some caramel, citrus, touch of banana, little sour, nice bitter ending. I like it.

Die Schaumkrone hält mittelmäßig. Es riecht fruchtig süßlich, nicht uninteressant! Geschmacklich ist es ebenso fruchtig süßlich, dazu noch etwas hopfig-herb schon lecker nur schmeckt es gestreckt (etwas wässrig). Fazit: Dieses Bier hat das Potenzial für mehr! Gut, schade das es nicht anstatt der wässrigkeit etwas intensiver im Geschmack ist, dann wäre es noch um einges besser! Test vom 20.11.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,10,11,10,10,11 - 10,55

30cl bottle. The color is more like copper than amber. Big frothy head. Taste is bread, flowers, grass. It is a sweet beer.

Amber like colour with a normal head. Smells a bit weird. Taste makes up for the smell though. Mouthfeel is very nice, body is also nice.

Ruby color, small beige head, lace. Berryish, metallic nose. Medium-bodied. Flavor is similar to nose: berryish (cranberries, strawsberries) with metallic notes. Leffe-like brew, not too bad.

Originally started to benefit the success of the popularity of Speciale Belge and amber beers in general in the Netherlands. Amber colour, nice creamy head. Aroma of caramel, (toasted) malts and sweet fruits. Taste caramel, malts, slight smoky flavour. Slight bitterness. From the generic amber beers this just might be the best one, but it’s still a generic amber beer. (from 33cL bottle)
