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.

brstp (201) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 30, 2007
Dark orange color, just barely offwhite head with lots of big bubbles on bottom and egg white tiny bubbles on the top. Aroma of orange, caramel, yeast, dried fruit; similar taste with creamy finish, spice, flowers, a bit of alcohol, lots of dried fruit, quite dry.

goleiro (200) - Lublin, POLAND - SEP 10, 2014
Aromat i smak dość odmienne - zapach belgijski, nieco alkoholowy, triplowy. Smak złożony, lekko karmelowy, słodowy i landrynkowy. Bardzo ciekawy. Piana niska, barwa bursztynowo-miedziana, przyjemny posmak. Bardzo dobre belgijskie piwo.

Bottle of 33cl, in a Kwak glass. Well, it’s really a rich experience. But it’s not one of the best bière Belge for sure. We’re in front of a nice blond/amber beer, with a deep colour and taste. The aroma is nice, stay long in mouth. Pretty nice head tho ! Drink it !

Not bad. Has a bit of butterscotch and yeast in the nose. Pours out to a cloudy amber-gold color with finely beaded white head. Starts out with some toffee-like malty sweetness and ends with a light alcohol sensation. A few light fruit and spice notes, but nothing strong.

Trogdor (196) - Cairns, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2004
hints of chocolate malt and spicy alcohol with light floral hop aromas. dark golden/light amber colouration, head dispersed quickly. sweet caramel and spicy complexity with light floral hop flavours. thin body with sharp spiciness and dry lightly bitter finish. very enjoyable beer.

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 3, 2004
The pour is full and lively - copper color with a full rocky head and silky lace. Head retention is poor, although a fine layer remains throughout. The aroma is bready, yeast, malt, fruity esters, cherries, clove, musty (or dank) and some bubblegum in the background. The taste is sweet and malty at the start with no surprising hop bitterness or bite. The Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with low effervescence. IMHO: A very drinkable beer with well-balanced characteristics. The character changes noticeably with warming, more complexity develops.
