Bottle at home alone. One of them beers that was always staring at me in the shops. At last I got it and I’m glad I did. Subtle caramel and dark fruit with slight spice. Lightly sweet taste. Near full body. Pleasant.

11.2 oz bottle pour. Pours a dark amber color with a short lived fizzy head. Big rich, sugar aroma. The description reads "slightly sweet", when really, this is overly sweet. Way too sweet in my opinion. Everyone has their preference though. Bready, doughy flavor with a bit of caramel. This is a pretty good beer though. Enjoyed it.

Bottle of 33cl, in a Kwak glass. Well, it’s really a rich experience. But it’s not one of the best bière Belge for sure. We’re in front of a nice blond/amber beer, with a deep colour and taste. The aroma is nice, stay long in mouth. Pretty nice head tho ! Drink it !

From tap at the Beerstore, Thessaloniki. Clear amber color with off white head. Malty, caramel aroma and light spicy-smoked. Sweet and light biter taste, caramel, fruity and grainy. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.

Arômes maltés bien présents : caramel, pain et biscuit. Une belle robe ambrée, presque couleur cuivre. La mousse est bien formée et tient assez bien. Goût plutôt doux et très agréable. Si elle n’était pas à 8,5°, j’en boirais des litres !
