Glas gedronken met de familie. Aroma is fruitig. Amber kleurig bier met redelijk stevige schuimkraag. Fruitige smaak. Licht bitter. Blijft lekker hangen.

Meh. Not bad, but muddled sweet fruit, caramel and yeast is about all that’s going on. Pleasant enough but pretty average for a higher price.

Bottle at home from notes. Pours a reddish amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma is pretty sweet, Belgian candy sugar, fruity, plums, some berries, caramel, mild spice. The flavor have more sweetness, plums, caramel, brown sugar, mild spices, hints of berries, light yeast. Finishes soft, thin body and really falls off to the finish.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 1/21/2012. Pours hazy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of golden raisin, plum, lemon, pear, apple, white grape, white pepper, clove, candi sugar, light caramel, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of golden raisin, plum, lemon, pear, apple, white grape, white pepper, clove, candi sugar, light caramel, bread, herbal, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of golden raisin, plum, lemon, pear, apple, white grape, pepper, clove, candi sugar, bread, light caramel, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish. Nice complexity and solid robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with a nice malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice Belgian dark ale. All around good complexity, balance, and solid robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
