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!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orangée, col épais beige, collant au verre tout au long de la dégustation.
Arôme rappelle un beau bouquet de grains concassé et de brassin.On y retrouve malheureusement ce profile très DeProef das la levure (renfermée) avec ce fini fruité.
En bouche, levure, houblon fleuri sur ce côté grains concassés, houblon contribue en un soupçon d’amertume fleuri, le tout se terminant sur un malt pâle/caramel.

Bottle at home, bought, I think, at Beer Planet Brussels, but who knows. Amber coloured with creamy beige head. Aroma is yeasty and fruity with a touch of spice. Also smells a bit like tomato ketchup, but I think this might just be me. Bit jammy too. Strawberry or tomato... Taste is similar, jammy, tomato ketchup. Lots of sweet malt in the aftertaste. Malt becomes more prominent further down glass. Quite full bodied. Bit of marzipan in there too. Pretty nice, if a little unspectacular Belgian beer.
