Chestnut-colored, weak head disappears within one minute. Aroma is very subtle, maybe a bit metalic. Malty and sweet taste with a hint of dried fruits. Hop and bitterness is not really present.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Chilled bottle BB 02/14 - must be at least a year old. Into a tulip. Dark amber with very little head. Initially smells of sherry trifle but eventually becomes more soupy and dental rinse-y as the oxidation takes over. Body is medium with sparkling carbonation. Taste is slightly sour, some sherry, tangerine, a trace of Belgian yeast and bubblegum, maybe some cherry. Alcohol is not noticeable. I’m not sure that it would normally taste like this without the age. Quite nice. A bottle is a bit too much though.

33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Pretty much non existing aroma. Kinda nice when it comes to taste, brown sugar, lemon and banana. Nice refreshing aroma and nice looks doesn’t hurt either.
Conclusion: Always nice to find a belgian beer that is not dominated by sweetness or banana. Overall a nice refreshing beer that is dangerously easy to drink compared to the alcohol content
