3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2008 Deep copper coloured pour with nice quickly diminishing head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Starts with caramel, banana and moves to malt as the alcohol comes through. Creamy toffee aftertaste. Limited complexity? Agreed, but a pleasant drink nonetheless.

bell’aspetto ambrato con riflessi ramati, schiuma beige chiara, pannosa e abbastanza persistente.
Naso non intenso ma delizioso, con note di banana, malto caramellato e frutta secca....
In bocca è tipicamente Belga.....buona, anche se non eccellente.....

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours very clear amber with thick white head. Highly carbonated. Sweet aroma of malt, berry, caramel. Both sweet and sour mouthfeel with low bitterness. The sourness/berry aroma lingers on the palate for quite a while.

This is a great beer, but the taste isn’t that special, the original glass makes it all good.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a medium amber color. The nose is very spicy with bananas. Comes across the palate very smooth with mild carbonation. The banana shines the most and the spice just lingers forever.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark brown, with nice creamy white head. Complex nose with hints of malt, yeast, and dried fruit. The taste is a romantic combination of caramel, yeast and a nice mix a dried fruit, with a pinch of hops. Good, but not an elite beer.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark 750ml bottle shaped almost like a wine glass.
Pours a beautiful head with a lace that’s just wonderful and stays in place. The head falls a little, but stays pillowy and good looking. The flowery hops are very mellow and the base of the smell for the ale. The smell is very good and has a strawberry undertone that is coupled with other fruity flavors.
The taste is slightly watery, but fruitful with a flowery boquet. It has a spiciness to it, it’s met with a sweet candy flavor.
