My bottle looks different from the one on here but on the back says "Origineel amber bier" I am surprised I have yet to review it as it has been one of my favorites over the past year or so. Very nice looking beer, deep orange amber in color. big somewhat dense meringue head that lasted and left some nice sticky lacing. To me the smell was all must and dark ripe grapes with a bit of alcohol. The taste, wow, where to begin. I read one of the reviews and someone mentions barley wine flavors and I agree, however if you could somehow brew a Barley wine / Saison hybrid I think that this would be pretty close. You get the musty, ripe grapes, some and malt sweetness in the beginning, and an earthy, peppery dry finish with a bit of funk spread throughout. I love it! Medium bodied and smooth to begin with a little thin at the end. I could easily drink this any time. It makes me very happy!

BlackHaddock (3480) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2012
Dumpy 33cl brown bottle with a green front label, amber only mentioned on the rear label (as noted by the review before mine on BA). Best before 7th Apr 2011, drank and reviewed 16th Jan 2011. Poured into stemmed ’Forbidden Fruit’ goblet, slowly, but allowing the sediment to enter the glass. Good white bubbly head, cloudy amber body, with small specks of yeast, grist and whatever suspended within, but only because I let the sediment in. Lacing clung to the side of the glass as I drank the beer. Sweet malty aroma, candy sweet in fact, with fresh biscuits and toffee apples. The taste was not as sweet as the smells indicated, although there is a lot more malt content than hops. The hops do however appear towards the end of the mouthfeel and adds a nice finish to the flavouring. This brewery produces loads of different beers, all seem to be very good, I’ll keep looking for them on my Belgian travels.
