Dégusté avec french tickler le 14 mai 2007. Dark brown poor with a reddish hue. Nice frothy thick beige head. Aromas of sweet caramel, typical chouffe yeast, curacao and very herbal scents. Very "natural" beer. Very herbal bitterness... far from aggressive, very mellow. Very balanced mouthfeel, creamy, just enough sweetness to top it all off. Alcohol is present. Nice caramel like aftertaste with a dry finish. Very unique and natural, i love it!

The bottle pours out a mahogany liquid with a quickly dissipating head. The nose is floral and spicy. Flavours of plum and dark fruits with spices. Delicous.
