3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, rather deep orange-amber with a solid slightly beige head.
Definite nose of hops and somehow spices (even if there arenít any spices used to brew it) and this aroma is also reflected in the taste, though a tiny bit sweeter than the smell led me to expect. Definitely some alcohol in the mix, not surprising for an 8.4% ABV beer.
At a slightly higher temperature than the recommended 5-6įC (41-43įF) itís easier to enjoy the aftertaste thatís nicely malty though not overdone.
Quite a strong taste and definitely a brew to try.

Nice light amber color with a lot of foam in the head. Smooth caramel malt and alcohol are the dominate flavors.

I see this bottle all the time, and have always wanted to buy it. But at $4.99, itís tough having not had it. This is on our 1001 Bottles list, so we didnít have a choice. Glad I didnít buy it before now, because itís not good! It does have a nice sweetness to it, but the mouthfeel is boring, the aroma is weak, and the aftertaste is... well, there isnít one. I am not impressed, and if they want to give me my money back, that would be fine!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 :)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber to brown beer with good looking off white head. Aroma is caramel like and smooth malty too. It has a round aroma and some hints of fruit. Taste is also rounded with a good malty and caramely character. In the aftertaste there is a slight alcohol burn.
