750ml corked and caged bottle: Beautiful golden pour with an inch-thick head that really lasts. The aroma is very spicy, yeasty. Sweet malts, mostly sweet bread and caramel, work off the esthery yeast well. Very light and drinkable, but with a nice warm finish.

Nez un peu épicé. Bouche ronde, sucre candi, épices. Rond dans l’ensemble. Finale un peu alcoleuse. Pas mal dans l’ensemble.

Butelka 330 . Wypita tuz po zwyciestwie Polski 1-0 na Euro. Ciemna miedziana barwa .piana biala niezbyt duza. Duzo drozdzy w zapachu i smaku. Suszone owoce rodzynki cukry lekkie banany w tle. Dobry przyklad belga. Alkohol niezle schowany w tle.

KoNrRiI (1093) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2016
0.25 tap. A clear, copper color with a medium, off-white head of an alright retention. Aroma is strongly yeasty with not much else in there. The taste is first and foremost spicy, yeasty, and sugary - it also brings in sweet, biscuity hints. A medium body, a slick and creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is medium long and introduces some herbal notes. Overall the beer is not bad, quite drinkable but lacks the complexity I expect from a Belgian Ale. Could be improved.

CaptainTilven (146) - Nancy, FRANCE - JUN 10, 2016
Dégustée à une température sans doute un peu trop élevée (probablement au moins 14°C), de surcroît dans un verre quelconque qui ne rend pas optimale la dégustation - donc, très certainement à ré-évaluer. Corps ambré couronné d’une mousse doré clair serrée assez fine qui fond assez vite. Arômes de fruits secs, alcool, candi, épices chaudes. Très ronde, épicée, très maltée; l’alcool ressort est assez manifeste; amertume légère. Bière capiteuse mais équilibrée donc pas écœurante mais savoureuse.

Caramel, malty, dried fruits, amber/brown with a good white/tan head, medium/full body, medium carbonation, taste of caramel and dired fruits, maybe too alcohol in the aftertaste...a great classic.

bouteille 33 cl - couleur ambrée, mousse abondante, odeur persistante de caramel, goût omniprésent de caramel, noisette, finale longue sur l’alcool

Drinking from a 33cl bottle. In the aroma cream, caramel. The unclear orange beer has a medium white head. In the taste a bit sweet, oranges Medium carbonated.

Parmenion777 (109) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2016 A clear amber colour with a frothy white head. Looks impressive in its customised glass. A grainy malt caramel aroma; a liitle fruit and grass. A sweet malt caramel taste; some dried fruit, woody spiciness and a crisp slightly dry finish.
