Full-bodied Belgian Specialty Ale. Amber in color with beautiful foam and slightly sweet, seductive malt character. Rich, satisfying Belgian experience.

Not bad. Has a bit of butterscotch and yeast in the nose. Pours out to a cloudy amber-gold color with finely beaded white head. Starts out with some toffee-like malty sweetness and ends with a light alcohol sensation. A few light fruit and spice notes, but nothing strong.

Bottle. Amber-red with small head. Pleasently malty-sweet and fruity with alcohol in the mix. Quite drinkable, though not that memorable.

hirigalzkar (2512) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours amber, medium head. Nice fruity flavor with a crisp hoppy touch and that special yeasty belgian character. A little too sweet in my opinion.

bottle@bar: I find the glass to be way cooler than the beer itself, the glass is really a big part of the experience, sweet malts, caramel, some spice, brown, sugar, raisins, slightly bitter, the focus is on the caramel & malt, medium body

The novalty of the glass ruins the fine aroma and taste of this Belgium beer. It poors with a thick head butt has a great after taste.

Grima (2182) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2011
corked 750ml bottle from City Concorde, Bertrange, Luxembourg!
The beer is amber colored, slightly cloudy, with fine, small and durable foam! Smells very caramelly malty, slightly bitter hoppy. Starts malty and bitter, with lots of caramel in the background. The middle part shows a pleasant hop aroma, which also turn out very bitter. The finish is malty caramelly, again very bitter, with light hop notes. Very intense and delicious beer!

rosenbergh (8433) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2011
330 ml bottle. From Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
Clear amber colour with average size off-white head. Caramel malt and spices in aroma. Strong sweet caramel, strong maltiness, spices and alcohol in flavour. Alcohol warms. Half the fun is the strange glass but I didn’t have that...
