3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Le bouchon de liège a "poppé" dès que j’ai enlevé le bidule métallique qui le "protégeait". Du danger en partant, j’adore ça. L’épaisse mousse beige qui trônait au sommet de la robe très trouble (surtout à la fin) et cuivrée s’est effritée très rapidement. Une odeur de ketchup aux fruits et de bretts nous fait complètement oublier que l’on a affaire à un hybride entre une saison et une dubbel. Le côté dubbel n’est plus là du tout ou presque, autant au nez qu’en bouche. Très acétique et pétillante, un aspect sucré et épicé discret se pointe en toute fin de gorgée. Les bretts sont omniprésents, apportant un caractère assez fruité (mangue) à la bière. Sur papier, c’était invitant, mais en réalité, c’était correct, sans plus.
Bouteille âgée de 2 ans (2012).

750ml bottle. Pours amber-brown with a medium-large off-white head. Aroma is fairly malty with a touch of yeast and ripened fruit. Flavor is of caramel malts and just a slight amount of alcohol. Pretty good beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Finding this brewery and this beer has made my need to return to Belgium a bit less urgent. It’s clean, just dry enough, has a tiny edge of funk that I personally find very desirable.
These guys are the closest decent brewery to my refrigerator. I’m going to do my best to get their product on the shelves of one of our local packey’s.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance- This beer poured a nice murky, amber color with a HUGE fluffy off white head which stay around awhile. Lacing is present throughout the life of this beer.
Smell- Tons of fruit smells are present such as cherry, strawberry, plums and hints of apple. Nice malty breadiness is present as well.
Taste- Taste and smell are very similar here with the fruits coming through. The sweet and tart fruit flavors are well balanced. Nice maltiness in the middle which leaves a nice sweetness in the mouth leaving you wanting more.
Mouthfeel- This is a nice medium body brew with medium carbonation.
Overall- Overall this is a great beer made by a small brewery. It’s an easy drinking beer with an ABV that leaves you with a warm feeling. The size of the beer(750ml)means you’re drinking a fair amount of beer so you need to be in the mood to drink or share with a friend or two.

Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Color was of brown sugar w/ an off white head. Had a very sour taste with cinnamon. Aroma was with cinnamon, granny smith apple, and cherry. Didn’t care too much for this beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2008 Bottle thanks to BigMilly8. Pours a dirty ruby orange with a late forming off white head. Nose is of fruity malts, breads, funk, tropical fruits, and yeast. Due to the nose I was anticipating a huge acidic flavor but this was not the case. Plums, yeast, bready malts, fresh oranges, doughy malts, candy sugars, with a touch of spiciness (I assume from the fine yeast particulates that now lay at the bottom of the bottle). Very light bodied and quite refreshing as the alcohol only becomes noticeable once this warms.

Pours thick and orange with a medium, frothy white head. Aroma is very curious, smell apricot, raisins, caramel, and honey. Drinks very smooth, coats the mouth. A solid beer, very easy to drink and well balanced.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours dark orange-reddish color with a large head that disappears quickly. Smells of some fruit, berries. alcohol. Taste is tart, with a lot of fruit and alcohol finish. Not bad but the tartness takes over in a not-so-good ways.
