Bronze, clear with cream coloured foam. Caramel mixed with fruit, banana apple and a hint of alcohol in the aroma. Caramel, sweet. malt with a hint of candy, strong alcoholic bitterness in the aftertaste that burnes the throat a little

het glas alleen doet de score stijgen, goed biertje wel moeilijk om ad fundum te drinken bij bierspelletjes

light brown, wood color. Aroma sweet, yeasty, peach, honey. Taste:sweet in the begining but not exagerated. Pleasant characteristic belgian yeast honey-peach flavours. Could have a bit stronger bitterness. Overall very good beer.

On draft in el central de Cambrils. Great reddish color very clean and transparent, with a considerable head. Poured in the original glass! The aroma is clearly Belgian, deep sweet and honey. The taste is in the same line, but rather soft. Great palate too, not too bubbly neither too flat. Not much aftertaste, at least nothing of the bitterness I like.. Good overall anyway!

Fruity with a hints of spice and caramel aroma. Flavor is little fruity with caramelized sugar sweetness, smooth mouth feel and a little bit of bitterness at the end. Mellow finish.

-at beer house, joburg- first of all. I must be subjective here, the glass sure could add a few points. :-D caramel with huge head. Aroma is caramel, spice and citrus. Nice fruity palate. Aftertaste is caramel, spice, round and lingering smooth spicy finish. Overall: an excellent Belgian! Nice and fruity, well hidden alcohol. Very smooth.
