Al naso è dolce, maltata, con notevoli e invitanti sentori fruttati (uva, ciliege) e floreali. Al palato la prima cosa che si nota è un intenso sapore di caramello con sentori di miele, poi con la degustazione salgono ti tono il malto e il fruttato. Il retrogusto è piacevolmente amarognolo.

Un poco espumosa al principio pero luego un sabor dulce agradable con un buen sabor final. La debería haber tomado más fria ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maybe,Dark red brown pour with a foamy head. Lots of vanilla/chocolate caramel syrupy flavors. Plum pudding. Rasin pie. Pecan pralines. Rich red syrupy goodness. Tastes like a meal, or at least a rich desert. Still has a nice delicate smoothness.

Clear amber colored beer with a soft flavour that brings to mind nougat and hints of caramilized bananas.

Very rich and heady. Not one that I would drink often. No hop. Drank from a glass and bottle. Glass heavily preffered. Dough, woody

Out of most of the Belgian ales I had in the country, I felt I could never go wrong with this one. Poured into its unique glass (not sure what its called, but has a round bottom and top connected by a thin stem. Very interesting to drink from). dark amber color with a small tan head. Soft and sweet taste. Classic Belgian ale.

One of my favorite Belgian ales...reminds me of my time in Brussels for sure. I love the cloudy appearance and the somewhat spicy aroma with sweet caramel undertones. The finish is also not quite as sharp as most other Belgian ales.

This beer is rather a strange one. On its own, it’s not that interesting, but as an accompaniment to food, it’s an excellent drink. The head disappears *really* fast if you don’t have the appropriate glass to glug it and keep replenishing it.

Pours a dark apple cider with an eggshell off white creamy head that lingers. Aroma is fairly light, bread, yeast and banana. Mouthfeel is pleasantly lighter than I expected, with small but lively carbonation. Taste is on the sweeter side: sweet rolls, apple, banana with a slight honey undertone. Aftertaste is very light and pleasantly sweet. Very high drink ability here.
