This isnt bad, but nothing I would recommend. Taste and aroma are okay for the style. [short review due to it coming from my backlog]

Bottle, 0.33l. Copper color,suprisingly average head. Clear. Aroma: some grass, dates, raisins, caramel. In flavor. Full body. More on sweet side. In flavor date, honey notes. Overall: very good beer. Probably, my favorite brewery.

Slokop (107) - Tilburg, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2009
Copper yellow color and a creamy head that did not last long, due to the form of the traditional glas that came with it. Fruity tastes in good balance with the hop. Alcoholic but not exageratted. The last sip will gush over your face when youre drinking unattentive. Beware! Nice beer. Would ask for another kind of glas though.

rkn65 (106) - st. clair shores, Michigan, USA - APR 8, 2006
Ver surprised by the 8%, it does not taste strong. A fruity banana aroma at first then becomes very sweet. Nice head when poured from bottle that lasts for a few sips. By the end of the glass sweetness was taking over.

Reddy brown, beige head. Slightly murky, a few bubbles. Malty aroma. Spices and caramel, bitterness in aftertaste. Can taste alcohol. Body a bit thin. US import, same bottle as picture, not sure if same beer. Tasty and easy to drink.

Mcbertola (103) - BRAZIL - APR 21, 2014
Cerveja de coloração avermelhada. Espuma cor de creme e densa. Aroma frutado, várias frutas, pêssegos, uva e licor. Sabor frutado, com notas de frutas passas, damasco, caramelos. O aroma e o melhor que tem nessa cerveja, apesar do sabor bem marcante. Excelente. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Snot19kilo (103) - Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2010 330 ml into a Belgium Boot glass(came with the 4 pack) The head was a full hand and forever lasting. It took me a bit to get the whole bottle pored into the glass. Anyway Its a pretty orange/red beer with a nice cream head.(and Im a dark beer drinker). Aroma was Fruit with a lot of malt. Mouth feel way good Carbonation and dry(no watery feel) Flavor was Fruity, malty tangy. very sweet.

It has a nice amber colour and a creamy head. Aroma of pollen, flowers and underwood. Fruity with a rather dry a slightly disappointing finish.
