Full-bodied Belgian Specialty Ale. Amber in color with beautiful foam and slightly sweet, seductive malt character. Rich, satisfying Belgian experience.

Hazy amber wth a off-white head. Candy sugar, caramel and some light acidity in the nose. More of the same in the taste. It don’t really take off and feels too sweet for me.

Lichtbruine kleur, bijna geen schuim. Aroma van caramel, beetje als wijn. Smaak is perfect in balans, beetje zoet, beetje bitter. Erg lekker.

Arômes maltés bien présents : caramel, pain et biscuit. Une belle robe ambrée, presque couleur cuivre. La mousse est bien formée et tient assez bien. Goût plutôt doux et très agréable. Si elle n’était pas à 8,5°, j’en boirais des litres !

Bottle. Really nice fruity and spicey aroma. Taste is fruity with lots of caramel and sweet notes.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2016 Degustação #1 18.mar.14 Cor âmbar com tons rubi e translúcida; espuma bege de alta formação e média persistência; bom lacing; Aroma de pão-doce e melaço; Sabor de início maltado bem doce que evolui para um final picante e pouco amargo; retrogosto também picante e que aquece um pouco a boca; corpo médio e carbonatação média. Degustação #2 16.abr.16 Cor âmbar com leve tonalidade rubi, um pouco turva com algum brilho; espuma marfim de alta formação e média persistente com lacing razoável. Aroma maltado de pão-doce, nozes e uva-passa. Sabor inicial de frutas escuras (ameixa e uva-passa) e nozes com picardia refrescante e um final seco, com álcool muito bem inserido e levemente amargo. Retrogosto maltado de frutas escuras muito agradável. Corpo médio e alta carbonatação. Alta drinkability. Obs: degustação no copo específico faz a diferença.

Roasty caramel aroma. Golden color, clear liquid, white head. Medium-heavy sweetness follow by medium bitterness. Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation for the style. Great beer, and maybe slightly better when served in kwak glass.;)

Rien de plus à dire que les autres commentaires. Excellente ambrée, avec un verre hors norme!

750->tulip: Pours a large, creamy, off-wihte head that provides spare lacing, has a hazy body that is made lightly cloudy by particles and has a honey clover and raisin bit to it. The beer itself is reddish brown in color. The duration of the flavor is average, it is moderately sweet, not very acidic or bitter and lasts about average on the palate after consumption. The texture is oily, the carbonation is soft, and the finish is astringent. I used to be crazy about all the Belgian beers when I first ’met’ them, but I’ve since come off of that honeymoon and am a bit more critical nowadays. Not a bad beer, but too sweet and heavy for my taste on an average day. It does, however, get a good bit better and ’candier’ the warmer it is; I’d serve warmer than the average beer.

From tap in real Kwak glass. Nice nose and appearance in dark amber and with malty notes. Taste is sweet and malty with almost raisins on the tounge. Palate is also sweet with fruityness and some very light hops.

Pours a murky reddish brown; lots of yeast floaties in there. Little head, some lace. Aroma is yeasty and bread-like directly after pour, then very sweet, vinous, and fruity. Great malty flavor and some sort of weird twang also, with fruits. It has some sort of "kick" to it, but I don’t taste alcohol. A nice hop flavor too. To me, it feels oily and thin in the mouth.
