3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The beer pours amber in color with a big off-white head sitting on top.
S: Lots of yeast and bread notes up front. Plenty of caramel, toffee, and brown sugar sweetness with a pleasant fruitiness to it as well. Raisins and bananas are the most prominent fruits and there is a mild spiciness to it, too.
T: A similar array of flavors are present. A touch of alcohol warms things up and the dominant malt sweetness is really present throughout. Toffee and caramel work quite nicely with the banana, pear, and raisin flavors.
M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Really nice smooth feeling on the tongue with nice flavors and aromas.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
light/medium brown with white head. Average carbonation, a bit of fruit and quite sweet. Very pleasant for every beer fan. Not too abstract. Remember to pour it into a high glass (if you do not have the beutiful kwak glass). Good finish!

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2009 2007 Vintage, 2009 re-rate
Muddy reddish-brown colour and the glass is filled with chunks. The aroma is heavy malt, some liquorice and spice. Soft body shows some pleasant brown sugar notes and light spice. Rounded body is smooth until a bit of alcohol kicks in late. Not bad with a couple years on it. 2-6-7-3-14 = 3.2
Fresh version, 2005 re-rate: Golden-brown colour. Slightly spicy aroma. Metallic, slightly sweaty character. Spicy palate. Thin bodied and not at all enjoyable. Score for this rating.
