2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tried on draught in Amsterdam. Lovely red colour, and a very mild, barley sugar flavour, but not very exciting, and a bit too sweet.

Just an average Belgium beer. Brown in color, sweet in taste. Mild in malt taste, not much else.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, pasteurised. Golden amber with huge head. A big malty flavour with malty sweetness and a spicy undernote. The finish is a little short but it is a good beer to keep by.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An easy drinking beer that suffers from a lack of flavour. A good dark colour and head make it enjoyable anyway

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark malty lager with little head, and a very sweet dunkel like aroma. A very empty feeling to the flavour with hints of sweetness. Overall a very harsh drink on the tongue, that is fairly tasteless.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yellow-amber, clear. Broken white head, thin but lacey. Nose of worts/malt. Bananaester. Taste as of worts again; a bit bitterish as spiced with turmeric, caramel. Finish is maltdrink again, but especially characterised by a metaloxide taste. Bo-o-oring.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2005 One of the beers I always have in the house. Good replacement of pilsener if you want something else. Sweetish taste that dries up a bit. There is also The Hergist version in 750 champagne bottle tastes different, less sweet, little bit yeasty, worth a try.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A very mild and almost sweet beer, more like a lager instead of a Belgian Ale. Drinkable

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright orange with a thinnish off-white head with some slight rings of lace. Nose is of fruity yeast esters, sweet but nondescript. Medium to full bodied with little carbonation--very smooth on the toung but boring. Taste is very similar to the aroma--sweet and slightly fruity, well balanced by a medium hop bitterness in the finish.
