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!

This strong ale pours a clear, deep, reddish brown color with a big, long lasting, off-white head. The aroma is very spicy and yeasty, with hints of herbs, yeast, malts, and oranges. It has a medium to full body with moderate carbonation and a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is tremendous, with lots of spices and yeast. Oranges, plums, and raisons all burst forth in the flavor. The finish is spicy and full of dark fruits as well. The head is lasting the entire glass and leaving nice lace. Wow! What a beer! I think this is my favorite Chouffe beer so far. Wonderfully complex, spicy, and just damn tasty.

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.

Lore (1102) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 23, 2013
reddish colour with massive beige head; aroma of candy sugar, malts and yeast with some herbs; taste of dried fruits, candy sugar, and fairly well hidden alcohol; bitter aftertaste; might be a bit less carbonated, otherwise perfect belgian ale.
