Nice smooth, slightly bitter easy drinking ale! Served in a test tube like glass with a wooden holder! The barman made me take my left shoe off, apparently something to do with tradition!

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2009 Draught - White Horse - Parsons Green London SW6. A browny red coloured beer with sweet candy sugar aroma and taste. This is typically Belgian sweetness combined with good alcohol. A nice beer which isn’t all about the glass. We had it from a stemmed half-pint glass.Score 3.7
Subsequent rating also scored 3.7.

On tap at the White Horse, Parsons Green, London (during their Old Ale festival), with Joeh, Kook, Duff and Maeib. Red colour. Pinpoint accurate. Clean crisp, packed with wheaty flavour. Strength and concealed sweetness on the finish. Very tasty.

33cl, no BBD...protein drop evident in bottle and pout, didn’ t hold its head well, but some lacing...dominant carmelly malt aroma with some sassy spicing apparent(ginger? corriander?) hints to almonds...drinks with a good body, pleasantly malty with spice highlights and subtle hopping...finishes to sweetness, but not heavy or cloying. Somewhat rich, but still easy drinking and enjoyable.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2005 One great beer. Excellent, compact foam and of long persistence. Balanced aroma with fruit scents and mischiano bitter that together. Intense red color. To try.

Very appealing rich floral, malted, toasted aroma with strong notes of bread, lumber, fruit, cardamom, alcohol. Clear orange appearance with Chunks, and many of them. Flavors that match the aroma but with an emphasis on the fruit with apricot and plum . A really well made ale.

Served in teh Kwak mini yard glass and wooden holder @ the Winking Lizard. Amber copper w/a large lasting white head. Sugary malt with a lightly floral hop; biscuity malt and a mild raisiny aroma, also toasty malt and anise qualities. Well balanced w/ a bready malt flavor, light flowery hop in the finish & aftertaste; Caramel & grape fruity esters and lightly bitter in the finish as well. Light clove yeasty spiciness. Alcohol sweetness is also noticeable. Highly carbonated, medium body, and well hidden alcohol. Very fine beer!!!!!! Not my favorite Belgian to date, but still a high quality beer.
