Clear orange body with a beige head. Aroma is yeast, caramel, malt, spice. Taste is sweet with very low bitterness. A bit of spice. Light to medium body. Nice beer.

Roodbruin bier (meer rood dan bruin) met aardige schuimkraag. Geur is ietwat zoetig met tonen van mout en caramel. Smaak is ook zoetig met tonen van mout, caramel en gras (!). Lekker biertje.

"a fruit and malt forward belgian with little hopping and hardly any wild aspects. no crazy belgian yeast here, just a sweet, straight forward beer. a belgian session ale, if you will. pretty good, if simple. not sure it’s worth the rank it’s currently pulling, but that’s for everyone else to decide... revisited:same aspects, but the whole fruity sweet thing is better. the fluffy tight head beautiful. gotta up the score a couple notches. 12 oz bottle."

Kolor: Rdzawy, Smak: Słodki z wyczuwalną nutą czekokadową, na końcu nieco przytłaczający. Podsumowując, dobry browar o pełnym smaku.

loco_gallego (148) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 6, 2014
Ambrée, mousse blanc cassé avec une bonne rétention. Arômatique sucrée, portée sur le caramel, avec des notes épicées. Houblonnage pas perceptible. En bouche également sur la douceur du caramel, très peu d’amertume. Fin de bouche fruitée et douce. Carbonation moyenne. Belgian ale moins complexe qu’attendu, mais agréable sur la douceur.

ferryman72 (16) - NORWAY - OCT 6, 2014
Poured from a bottle into Pauwel Kwak’s very special, gorgeous glass. (Google it) Heavy and sweet aroma. Caramel and nuts. Beautiful, dark amber colouring, with light brown head. Light, roasty taste of alcohol, coffee and ...hops(?). Little palate. Not impressive but I’ll gladly take another one... That glass though...
