3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Brasserie V - Pours copper with a foamy white head. A touch of tartness in the nose, nutty, with some fruit notes. Taste is very smooth, fruity, with some bready notes. Bold malt with a hint of spice and cherry. Bready finish, subtle yeast notes. A bit of mineral. A little too carbonated and pretty thin. Very interesting.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled, rated 2011-06-16, Batch 586 (1.2.2011)) Somewhat hazy dark brown with a small, but lasting head. Candi-sugary-malty nose also presents some vegetably-sewery notes. Flavor is a bit better, with malty - although slightly worty - sourish and dried-fruity notes. Not even close to a real Belgian beer, though. Almost medium body, quite carbonated, slightly stingy. Either a bad bottle, or bad attempt to brew a Belgian beer.

500ml bottle. Rich dark colour like a christmas pudding. Flat layer of tan foam and fruity aromas of prunes and currants. Well balanced flavours with a complex mix of fruit and malt. A good beer to sit and sip.
