Nice, malty aroma and fruity taste. Packs quite an alcoholic kick.

75cl bottle shared in a Kwak glass. Pours an amber colour with a huge white head. Very malty flavours with a nougat like sweetness. Good mouthfeel with a corn-like dryness in the finish. Not a classic but a nice change to the usual heavy Belgians of a similar strength.

Taste like cereal with a little touch of malt, not bad beer but overrated in comparition with less famous and way better cereal beers.

This beer pours a dark copper color with minimal head and minimal lacing. The aroma contains strong scents of fruits, like most Belgian ales with a slight undertone of alcohol. The taste is very sweet and the fruity taste is very apparent, but it is oddly somewhat sour. Not too sour, but just enough to be different. They do a good job of masking the alcohol in the taste. The mouthfeel is very pleasing as the fruits and sweetness is very clear. Drinkability is not so good on this one because it is so sweet and sour that I can't see myself enjoying more than one. Overall, a very good Belgian beer that I enjoyed profusely.

Very nice beer, was served in a pub in a Kwak glass (which looks like something from a lab)

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma intenso y envolvente. Madera, vainilla, final vinoso y alcoholizado, notas frutales.
Cuerpo medio, color ambar rojizo, carbonatación ligera, coona de espuma ligera, de burbujas finas que se adhieren al cristal.
En boca, cerveza elegante y bien estructurada. Cremosa y aterciopelada.
Al paladar se confirma su aroma frutal y un ligero amargor, Un poco de picor en garganta y lo que sorprende es que a pesar de sus 8% de alcohol, este no se deja sentir.
En general una muy buena especialidad Belga, la cual se disfruta bastante y no decepciona en absoluto.

Medium amber beer with a fizzy off-white head that dissipates slowly with an audible crackle. Strong nose of apple cider, soy sauce, and vinegar. Flavor is a bit less complex than the nose with an overwhelming muskiness that somewhat burns the pallet and masks the other underlying flavors. Some sweetness does eventually come through, along with the apple flavor, but they are subdued in comparison. Decent beer, but not my favorite Belgian ale by a long shot.

Cork popped and bottle fizzed over but I could catch it in the glass. Dark ruby red appearance with big creamy head that lasted to the end with lacing. Aroma is malty, with candied cherries, wildflowers, nuts, and some earthy minerals. The flavor changes as the beer warms, it is fruity and tart at first but takes on flavors of nutty yeast, sour cherries, tobacco, and caramel. It has a medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, and long, sweet finish. This is a very fine beer that is versatile for serving with many kinds of food.

Nice looking fairly clear Belgian. Head didn’t stick around for long. Lots of great flavor, full palate. Clean tasting. Likeability 5/5
