Had it on tap at BXL Cafe, Manhattan. Served in its own particular glassware with wooden handle/device. Smells like a Belgian, looks like a Belgian, odd bitter and sourness with a Belgian finish. Definitely has its own character, but not one I cared for.

lunaticharness (183) - Torrance, California, USA - JUL 24, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2003 tap from toronado.... smelled sweet and malty and possibly a hint of smoke or a hint of fresh cut oak, the glass made this beer look perfect, but the flavor was almost a disaster - sweet, hoppish, made me think i was drinking maple syrup, tad thick and flat on the tongue

zeek (181) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2010
Pours a thin white head that disappears by the third sip. Color is great, a nice coppery brown. Nice malty taste that stays at the roof of the mouth. Its good.

thiesen (178) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2013
Not much aroma - smells of mashing, sweet malts and caramel. The looks is unique, not does it only come in a glass that can’t stand on its foot - which is really stupid - but its beautiful copper red/brown with white head and the bubbles revealed in the high thin glass. The taste is sweet, malty caramel. Misses some bitterness and gets a bit boring in the long run.

Nice copper color, white head smells of malt, and grains Very smooth, nicely carbonated Tastes of sweet malt, very well balanced. Overall it is a very good beer.

Mooi donker bruin donker goud. Schuim middelmatig. Br van het bier af ruik je al dat hij een zeer fruitige geur heeft. Stroperig en zoet in de mond. Maar toch verfrissend. Voor sommige kan hij te zoet zijn maar ik vind hem lekker. Toch mis ik iets bitters. Een van de betere ales die ik gedronken heb.
