Bottle in a fish restaurant in Brussels. Amber colour etc. Full bodied taste, less sweetness than expected. It went extremely well with grilled lobster. I’ll recommend this with food.

Dark reddish brown colour with tiny off-white head. Aroma of bananas, plums, some spices, caramel, hops ets. The same are flavours with low bitterness, friuty aftertaste. Honestly I expected a little more complex beer, but it is still ok.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.75L bottle forgotten in the cellar for a few years too many (3.5, according to the label), but still pretty fine and slightly carbonated. Pours unclear orange amber, no head because of the age. The aroma is strongly yeasty and fruity, with some notes of nuts, caramel, plums and dark fruits, spices, alcohol. The taste is medium sweet, light bitter. Very smooth palate, creamy, sticky.

330 mL bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Brownish-orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of Belgian candi sugar, toffee, and dark fruit. Taste is malt-forward and sweet yet subtle and smooth complementing the fruity notes. This is a great, classic Belgian ale.
