3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber colour with a thick lasting white head and sticky lacing. Aroma is quite spicy, cherry and fruits, caramel and toffee along with a bit of honey. Flavour is malty, biscuity with spicy hops and fruitiness. Slight soapiness. Really reminds me more of an English-style bitter than any other Belgian Iíve ever had.

Pours a nice amber colour with no head (my bad) . Very light in the aroma deptartment some caramel. The taste was fairly staightforward, crisp carbonation, some caramel , hops, dry finish. Average but quite drinkable.

Well I really like the nose on this one..lots of malt blended with fruity hops...I expected a big taste.
taste is good,but actually mild,a sweet beer,mild malt with a fruit middle and a malt finish...good but not special.
Lots of carbonation helps this one along giving it a slightly better drinkability.

Somewhat fruity and caramelly but a bit flat in the aroma. Clear copper coloured with strong, off-white head that recedes to thick cover while coating the sides of the glass. Caramel malt flavour up front with some dark sugar fruitiness and a light bitterness in the finish. Lasting fruit on the tongue. Overall quite sweet. Light-medium body and rather quaffable. Itís very easy to drink if somewhat simple and sweet. Bottle (Palm Export 5.2%).

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice amber colour, but disgusting aroma. Taste is way better, lots of caramel, but the aftertaste is not very pleasant again. Very poor for a Belgian beer.

Bottle picked up in Belgium. Average Belgian that is fairly malty & fairly sweet. Quite nice, but not the brilliant beer you might associate with Belgium.

Nice amber looks with foamy head. Good in autumn and winter. Tastes a little too smooth and malt. Lacks a bit of character
