Huubs (142) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2012
Donkeramber, bruine kleur met offwhite schuimkraag. Geur is fruitig, banaan, maar beperkt. Smaak is zoet, caramel, met wederom fruit en licht kruidig (kruidnagel) en een vleugje zoethout/drop. Nasmaak is zoetig. Beetje koolzuur en voelt iets olieig aan. Drinkt vrij gemakkelijk weg. Aldus Huubs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Loved this Beer. Poured a lovely dark golden color, with a medium size lasting head. Great flavors of apricots, caramel and spices. The beer got better after every mouthful, considering the ABV.

Flaska från systemet. Bärnstensfärgad vätska. Luktar honung. Smakar sm en blommig sommaräng.

I shared this with my parents last night, it was their first experience with a Belgian ale. My mom like it alot, dad took a little time to get into since it wasn’t Bud. He gave it a thumbs up later. Anyways, nice crystal red-amber-topaz color with elegant soft champagne like head that settles to champagne effers that remain till the end. Aroma expresses the mixed dried fruits, but has a strong dough yeast nose. Some caramel, barnyard dust and baking spices. Flavor was dominated by the yeast and less so of the other nosey flavors. Palate was creamy, again doughy, and a dry finish. Overall, a pleasant experience for everyone.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2013 For my taste this beer is not good, complex and incomprensible complex aroma and taste, very beautiful presentation in glass but the aromatic characteristic disliked me.

Pours dark copper with thick tan head. Smell is sour, yeasty and funky. Taste is malty, notes of bread, yeast and fruit. Medium body, light carbonation.

Dark copper color wth good head. Alcohol hidden well as I just realized it was 8%. Has a candyish, yeasty, sweet flavor to it with matching aromatic qualities. A good Belgium style beer.

Intense and gentle altogether/ typical Belgian. When foam dissolves beautiful layer of it still remains on top of the beer. Not rich taste by something like grape stems, enjoyable. GF loves the taste :)

Clear light brown amber pour with a full slightly tan head. Bready sweet malt smell with a hint of toffee and caramel. Yeast hiding in the background. Really inviting aroma for totally digging in, so I will. Kinda sweet but nice caramel malty taste. Dark brown bread and a little bit of a hoppy aftertaste. Medium body with also average carbonation tickling the tastebuds. Me likey!
