2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2013 For my taste this beer is not good, complex and incomprensible complex aroma and taste, very beautiful presentation in glass but the aromatic characteristic disliked me.

33cl bottle@Belgian hotel bar in Kwak glass@approx 10 degrees C. Pours almost orange with off white head in the peculiar glass, which did actually do a kwak sound at the appropriate moment. Aroma of malt, caramel and dark fruit. Taste is predominantly malty and sweet, with caramel and spice kept in check by fresher, fruitier notes. Aftertaste full, malty and hoppy, signalling that this is not just a gimmick beer but a genuinly good and serious Belgian brew.

Bottle in a fish restaurant in Brussels. Amber colour etc. Full bodied taste, less sweetness than expected. It went extremely well with grilled lobster. I’ll recommend this with food.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark reddish brown colour with tiny off-white head. Aroma of bananas, plums, some spices, caramel, hops ets. The same are flavours with low bitterness, friuty aftertaste. Honestly I expected a little more complex beer, but it is still ok.

0.75L bottle forgotten in the cellar for a few years too many (3.5, according to the label), but still pretty fine and slightly carbonated. Pours unclear orange amber, no head because of the age. The aroma is strongly yeasty and fruity, with some notes of nuts, caramel, plums and dark fruits, spices, alcohol. The taste is medium sweet, light bitter. Very smooth palate, creamy, sticky.

330 mL bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Brownish-orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of Belgian candi sugar, toffee, and dark fruit. Taste is malt-forward and sweet yet subtle and smooth complementing the fruity notes. This is a great, classic Belgian ale.
