Limited Edition 2008 - From the big bottle, this brew poured murky amber color with plenty of n’ice beige foam, lasting for days. The aroma is boozy and fruity, with apricots and definite herbaceous and bready notes. The flavor is intense and complex. It’s got all the sweet Belgian yeastiness you could want, with a bit of toffee as it warms and some sweet/sour fruit peeking through, maybe like a dark grape(?) I would say it’s got a medium finish with nice caramel and malt prevailing there. Has a very soft mouthfeel with well moderated carbonation. This is everything a Belgian should be! N’Ice work! (couldn’t help myself)

2008 Bottle. Aroma of fruits and alcohol. Hazy amber body with thin head, lacing body. Flavor is filled with fruit and citrus with a hint of hops and malts... slightly tart with a dry finish... a nice warming power and very enjoyable

the theme of this brewed belgium product seems very festive and taste in that way as well. Brewed with 5 types of spices it is simply amazing!

Bottle 0,75. Coz za swietne piwo. Wyglad przepiekny, wielka i bardzo, bardzo trwala piana. Kolor czerwono bursztynowy. Swietny swiateczny aromat. A wiec mamy tu gozdziki, curacao, skorke pomaranczy, laske wanilli i przyprawy inne, trudne do zidentyfikowania. Smak tresciwy, sosnowy, runo lesne, powidla ciasteczka korzenne. Alkohol ukryty doskonale, super piwo na zimowe wieczory. Doskonale rozgrzewa. Jest metnawe ale delikatnie. Swietna etykieta idealnie pasujaca do pory serwowania tego piwa.

Dark red with a beige head. Sweet and fruity aroma. Body is full, texture oily and medium carbonation. Balanced taste of candid fruits, raisins and dryed plums, herbs and chocolate. Semi-sweet finish. Excelent beer.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Deep dark reddish garnet colour, creamy white head. The aroma is awesome. Loaded with rich toasted plums, toffee and rich sweet stone fruit. Very spicy and sweet with lots of clove, orange, dark burnt sugar, brown sugar and even a bit of vanilla and chocolate. So complex and so inviting. The palate is very soft and wheaty wit a silken quality that just lets the brew coat the tongue in silken deliciousness. Sweet dates, toasted sugar and lots of mintiness on the back. This stuff is really tasty. Warming lets the caramelly and plummy malts really come into harmony with the spicy yeast. Lightly peppery on the back. Man, I love this brewery.

An interesting aroma of fruit and caramel. Hints of spice. Pours a brown haze with a slight reddish tint. The beer is lively. Very good taste, complex but well balanced. A creamy bitter beer with hints of fruit and caramel. Everything just works well together with this beer.

Amber donker bier. Heerlijk met een flink zoete karamel nasmaak. Heerlijk vol met een mooie nasmaak.
