Biggish light brown head. Deep red translucent body. Sweet fruity caramel and wild berries aroma with banana notes. Dry-sweet earthy caramel taste with roasty almond notes and again some banana. Slightly stale. Nice. (0.33l bottle shared with gr0ve.)

Pours a murky dark brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma of caramel and malt. Flavor of caramel, candy and toasted malt. The body is light with a creamy texture. Interesting but not particulary exciting.

Dark brown in colour, thin head. Malty aroma. Flavour is a little bitter on the tongue but sweet on the lips. Quite a thick, oily texture. A slightly woody finish.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2008
My Bottom Line:
The overt fruitiness and spicy sweetness of this Belgian Ale recalls artisanal soft drinks just as much as its fierce carbonation. Some earthy hop support clashes with the yeast’s personality, but in the end all remains drinkable and fit enough to accompany a meal.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam quickly recedes to a ring around the burgundy-laced dark brown.
-A mineral twang bothers me once in a while.
-The fruitiness is reminiscent of dried cranberries.
-The fierce carbonation is slightly detached from the flavor profile.
-The spiciness revolves nutmeg and cloves, while the sweetness touches upon caramel and licorice.
-Bready maltiness is apparent in the nose, but quickly gets replaced by that candied sweetness.

Bottle; best before Dec.’08.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 25, 2008
Bottle: Poured a deep clear brown color beer with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fruity ester with some sweet malt notes is really interesting and enjoyable. Taste is a mix between some sweet malt with some incredible fruity ester. Full creamy body with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Really interesting beer and some thing that makes me want to try more form this fine brewer.

rederic (2942) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2008
Dark brown color, with a tan-colored head, but falls quickly, nice toasty, caramelized, biscuity malt nose, with some vanilla, toffee, and mochaish accents, with some candi, brown sugars, hint of molasses with a chocolatey, fruitcake aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, toasty, caramel malt character, with a hint of burnt graininess, with some black chocolatey, subtle molasses notes, a dark dried fruity flavour of dates and raisins, with a nutty, nutmeg spiciness, leading towards a malty, fruity, faint lingering bitterness finish.

probstblueribbon (2918) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2008
33 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.BB 12 2008, Lot A.

App.: Deep mahogany, clear, tiny tan head. Aroma: Big dark fruits and well as bright, acidic fruits, some rich deep malts, molasses, herbal spiciness, rich and inviting. Palate: Medium-thin body, soft effervescence. Flav.: Nuts, burnt sugar, a bit of the dried and tart fruits, but they are restrained, an interesting blend of tart and sweet with a bit of alcohol on the finish and a lingering nutty bread crust aftertaste.

Not exactly Wilde, not exactly Bock. Not exactly great, not exactly bad. Exactly.

Bottle. Frothy lightbrown good mostly lasting head. Dark red-amber colour. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Oranhe notes. Moderate bitter flavor. Average finish. Oily palate. OK but a little boring beer.

Brouwser (119) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2008
Bière brun rouille, plutôt opaque, qui laisse une mince mousse beige crème qui disparaît rapidement. Nez houblonné, aux notes de levures, de caramel et d’herbes comme la coriandre. Le goût est moyennement amer, avec des arômes de farine rôtie. Il y a un goût de terre, celui des pois verts ou des fèves crues. L’arrière-goût rappel le caramel et le cigare. Elle est bien pétillante, rafraîchissante, quoique l’on puisse discerner une fine texture poudreuse. Une bien bonne bière, mais rien d’exceptionnel…
