The aroma has a lot of banana and cloves. The appearance is thick and dark. The banana flavor continues in the taste. There is a light malty backbone.

Mörkröd med ordentlig skumkrona. Omedelbar sötma, med lång karamell och malt. Styrkan märks inte alls. Någon tomhet i sena eftersmaken.

Pours deep copper almost red with little head retention. The aroma has toffee caramel, slightly alcoholic and a hint of licorice. the flavour is quite smooth although a little on the thin side, the beer is well attenuated and slightly astringent later...over all a pleasant beer.

I will have to rerate this because the brew accidentally got partially frozen and I don’t want to rate a bad sample.

Bright copper in colour. Super head which was frothy yet had much texture (although didn’t last). If you let this beer linger slightly in your mouth you will pick up a most wonderful toffee flavour. Quite hoppy for a beer of this nature as well. Kind of reminded me of Hoegaarden Forbidden Fruit only better all round. Very impressed.

I think it’s just a very tasty and easy going beer. It’s sweet, but also has a sour yeastiness to it giving it more balance and complexity. Together with a very mild bitter finish with fruits and malts it’s just a very refreshing and easy to drink beer. Comes with a very special glass when ordered in the bar/pub.

First off the story alone for the glass is great. Pours an amber color with a white head. The nose has hints of a sweetness, malt and apricot. The flavor is a sweet malty raisin, a touch of stone fruit/plum, toffee. Overall a really delicious beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Excellent belgian ale. Beautiful colour. Has a medium sweet flavour to it, not as sweet as La Chouffe. Don’t forget to take the glass and holder home with you.

Sweet, roasted notes are the dominant flavors of this thin-bodied beer. Enjoyable, but the alcohol is very noticeable.
