Yes, it has a simpler and sweeter flavor than many other belgians, but it is fantastic. Straightforward caramel maltiness with subtle Belgian spiciness - and not too sweet - great great great with food.

Roodbruin bier (meer rood dan bruin) met aardige schuimkraag. Geur is ietwat zoetig met tonen van mout en caramel. Smaak is ook zoetig met tonen van mout, caramel en gras (!). Lekker biertje.

This beer is weird, I still cannot describe what it tastes like. I have one right here in my hand, and its my third six pack. Ive had it in the states and in france. Still this stuff baffles me. Its a great flavor, very supriseing, but I cant describe it. If you want a beer that tastes like nothing else, this is it.

Bottle, 33cl. I was expecting a lot more from this one. Itís a good beer but something in the flavour was not right.... Pours a red/brown colour with a small beige head that disappeared a little too fast (next time iíll try to drink it in her special glass). Aroma of fruits and spices. The flavour is strong and very complex also very dry. I can sense the malt, spices and the alcohol. However, thereís also something like burnt wood in the flavour that isnít good. Not very smooth and not the best belgian beer around.

Iím not that crazy about this one but it could be that the Belgian Strong Ales are not my cup of tea. The aroma is of toasted dates and the head is not holding. This is being enjoyed in a goblet so the aroma and taste of a Belgian should be accentuated. The first impression of the taste is dark Belgian candy sugar...very sweet. It does finish with a nice light tartness but follows with an alcohol aftertaste is subtle but noticeable.

pours reddish/orange with a slight frutti aroma. Loads of fizz; malty even. Taste is traditional American malt, not as bitter. Alcohol is hidden very well; very refreshing. Solid Belgian Ale, though not the top echelon.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice malty, citrusy, slightly woody, musty aroma. Intriguing. Color is a clear amber with good carbonation and a tight tan head. Taste is at first malty. Slighty citrusy with some musty character as well, and that is good in this type of beer. Some woody notes in the taste too. Malt takes over in the end and the finish is warming from the alcohol. A nice warming beer on a cool, drizzly fall Minnesota day.
