3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
No Kwak glass. Somehow I’ll live. Deep, toffee color. Creamy, full head. Very heavy and quite alcoholic. Malty-sweet with lots of dark fruits. An adequate Belgian that has gained its popularity not through the complexity of taste but through the novelty of stemware.

[Draft at Peculier Pub in NYC] Very thick, dense head...deep and very dark brownish red color. Sweet, dark roasted fruit, caramel, malt flavors. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Just about what you’d expect from a good beer of this style. Pretty awesome.

Tap at Delirium, Brussels. One of the best looking beers around ;-) Good fruity aroma, yeast, malt. Taste is quite complex, especially when warmed up a little.

The appearance is outstanding. Pours a deep amber with a massive head. Nice foamy lacing. Flavor is malty, fruity, and crisp. Wonderful beer.

750 ml bottle. Pours an amber color with a very thick creamy white head. Aroma is fruity with hints of fresh yeast, malt, sweet vinegar and caramel. Taste is a bit on the sweet and sour side, primarily sour fruits with hints of banana,mango,caramel and even nutmeg. Excellent overall and very refreshing.

Seductive aroma on this one and great appearence. pours with a big head and great colour, has big floaties, but you get that in this kind of beer.
Flavour is great with some tropical fruits (banana? citrus? hard to tell), caramel, cloves and you would barely notice the 8%.
Damn good beer.

Big red color with floating particles and a large creamy head. Aromas are sweet malt - toffee and caramel. Big, rich, and creamy. Good malt flavoring throughout, mostly consisting of sweet toffee and caramel. Satisfying.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Prominent citrus and cherry aroma. The appearance was unremarkable overall but the flavor was complex and a nice balance of citrus fruit with the underlying malt. An excellent beer.
