Bottle. This beer is a little too sour for me. Sour heads might appreciate it. Smells nice and nice flavor. Just doesn’t taste right.

750 ml bottle. Pours a rich brown with a ruby hue. Aroma is nutty, hoppy, somewhat fruity. Body is full and rich. Flavors range from light fall fruits, to somewhat of a dry wheat yeastiness, a slight citrus bite, and a sweet malty finish.

Arome and appearance don’t blow me away, but the flavor is very full wand sweet with a little bitterness to it. Had a 25cl bottle and the beer looks brown, so I’m guessing it’s this one.

Overly sweet sugarbomb. Tastes like sugary buckwheat cereal. A little sourness in the nose and flavor, it tastes like brown sugar water. Not much carbonation, pours brown, smells of must.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very thick-set, cream coloured head, irregular, over chestnut-cola coloured beer. Very outspoken coriander nose, soupy, sweet malt and colouring. Citrus, and lots of sugar, even melasses, but ending sweet. All the time "enriched" by the evil seeds, of course. Just ast the blonde, very fizzy, overcarbonized. Despite this, there’s an oily slickness, leaving a film on the tongue. Certainly not Silenrieux’ best try. One would believe Du Bocq.
Earlier Rating: 3/9/2004 Total Score: 3
Slight gushing to huge, beige head; foxy-amber beer, all clear. Adstringency in the nose; glue, solvent, plywood and straw. Maybe some dark candi sugar. Quite smoked taste at the onset, dark malts, and - I guess - buckwheat indeed. Unfortunately, the solvent aroma's are back retronasal, if less. Slight acidity and adstringency. Quite well bodied, nevertheless. The solvent is a brewing fault, IMO. Sad, because the beer behind it seems to deserve better.

33cl bottle at Cambrinus, Bruges. Pours dark brown, coca-cola like. Aroma is spicy, sarasin, malt and banana. Some hop. Taste is like aroma. Carbonation is quite fizzy. It has the feeling of a saison.
