light brown, wood color. Aroma sweet, yeasty, peach, honey. Taste:sweet in the begining but not exagerated. Pleasant characteristic belgian yeast honey-peach flavours. Could have a bit stronger bitterness. Overall very good beer.

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2006
Light brown colour, huge beige head (maybe because of the strange glass?). Caramel malty aroma, flavour of wood, alcohol, fruity hops.

dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - JUN 14, 2008
pours dark dark orange with thin tan head, smells of malt, yeast and spice. The flavor is beautifully malty with a spicy fruity finish. This is one of the tastiest ales i’ve had.

A fine, simple but very satisfying beer. The type that can be had over and over again on different occasions whenever thirsty for beer.

hangunder (305) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2013
Bready/yeasty, sweet and a rich malt in the aroma. Characteristic belgian yeast. A nice looking beer, mahogany color with long lasting white head. Caramel, malt, belgian yeast and a mild hoppiness, with abrupt alcohol aftertaste. Pretty clean tasting. Above average carbonation. Medium bodied.

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

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - APR 19, 2003
Dark amber colour, almost no head (just a thin lace of foam). The aroma is sour (citrus) and quite sweet (caramel). The flavour is too sweet (caramel and toffee and a lot of sugar), quite sour. Spicy aftertaste. I didn't really like this beer...

tbonde (304) - DENMARK - APR 15, 2015
33cl bottle@Belgian hotel bar in Kwak glass@approx 10 degrees C. Pours almost orange with off white head in the peculiar glass, which did actually do a kwak sound at the appropriate moment. Aroma of malt, caramel and dark fruit. Taste is predominantly malty and sweet, with caramel and spice kept in check by fresher, fruitier notes. Aftertaste full, malty and hoppy, signalling that this is not just a gimmick beer but a genuinly good and serious Belgian brew.
