Full-bodied Belgian Specialty Ale. Amber in color with beautiful foam and slightly sweet, seductive malt character. Rich, satisfying Belgian experience.

Nice Belgian brown ale! Dark amber colour. Sweet fruity aroma. Nice sweetish flavour of caramel. A great beer indeed from East Flandern.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2007
Clear golden copper body with a decent size off-white head. This one is mostly a lot of malt caramel with candied fruits. Nothing spectacular but well done. The beer is moderately sweet and when my palate got passed the malt caramel and fruity flavours I noticed some woody hops that are there more for an aromatic purpose than to provide bitterness. Pleasant typical belgian body and pleasant typical lively belgian carbonation 8% is apparent. Some bubble gum flavours develops as it warms up. A very well done but somewhat generic as far as Belgian Strong Ales are concerned. The only thing that makes is stand out is a funny sounding name and even funnier looking official glass. It really kwaks me up.

Kraft Caramels that is what this beer reminds me of, but what a great gimmick glass. Page 356 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 296 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

lovemyipas (544) - nw burbs, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2007
pours a dark caramel color with a one finger off white head. aroma is malt and hops. light to medium body with ok lacing and good carbonation. flavor is malt, hops, and a musty flavor that is also in the aroma. has some grain in the aroma and flavor as well. has a little sweet flavor and is a little sticky on the lips. has a little bread aroma as it warms, not bad for a Belgian ale! has a dry hop aftertaste, and the hops aroma gets a little stronger as it warms. pretty smooth.

BeerandBlues2 (11971) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 25, 2007
750 mL bottle. Pours sparkling amber with a small fizzy light brown head, mostly diminishing, spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, toffee), average hops (herbs, grass), average yeast (dough, earth) with notes of butterscotch and maple syrup. Medium bodied, mineral texture, lively carbonation and a metallic finish. Short duration, moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness; alcohol and metal flavors.

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2007
Poured a coppery gold. Initial flavour was bright and clean with caramel, orange peel, licorice/anise, coriander, and a hint of candy sugar. When yeast poured in the profile became more bitter and turbid on the taste buds.

ekstedt (6420) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2007
Bottle. Clear copper, with thin and quickly disappearing off-white head (am not really sure it was off-white, is went away so fast). Malty, heavy, alcoholic aroma with some herbal hops and notes of rye bread and apricot. Medium to light bodied. A bit unbalnced flavour, alcohol is too evident. Still interesting.
