3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks the part, smells the part, feels the part........but it didn’t taste the part. I don’t know, I feel wrong for not tasting much in this besides a little bit of spice and dark fruit but I was disappointed with the lack of flavor. However, it did smell great, look great and had a nice full body with a smooth finish. A pretty good beer but............

Flavours: Candied fruit, Belgian yeast, prunes, plums, figs, hop notes.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Imposante mousse à la surface de cette bière rougeoyante mi-épaisse, qui présente aussi un nez acidulé qui rappelle même un peu les levures bretts, avec quelques fruits (baies, cerises) pour terminer. Bouche en punch aux fruits, riche et décadente, savoureuse et complexe, superbement balancée. Elle est un peu trop pétillante, comme c’est souvent le cas pour cette brasserie, mais il s’agit d’un de leurs fleurons, un délice de tous les instants.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep, hazy brown with an off-white head and lacing. The aroma is lots of spices like cinnamon and coriander with some dark fruit as well. The flavor is spices and rich malt up front with a solid backbone and slightly sweet finish over a heavy body.

Pours a brown colour with a head that disappears quickly. I find its a fruitier version of the 12.

It pours brown with a full head that produces a fair amount of lacing. It has an aroma of fruit and spices. There is also a bit of alcohol and malts. Finally, there are earthly notes as well. There are flavors of spice, alcohol, yeast. It does have a moderate, dry bitter finish.
