3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light brown color with a big frothy head, that is lightly tan. The smell is big and malty, with lots of caramel and toffee in the flavor, slightly smoked and sweet at times, the flavor is kind of unbalanced and watery. The mouthfeel is thin with little to no aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clean brown with a light beige foam. Smells full of caramel and smoke...tastes similar to the smell only slightly watered down. Almost no aftertaste and no real thickness to it at all. A bit bland, but its sweetness tastes fairly good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nuts and dark fruit in the nose. Appearance is brown with a nice head. For a low ABV belgian this has loads of flavor. Grapes, nutmeg, caramel, chocolate, spices, and something slightly sour I cant seem to put a finger on. It's a bit on the carbonated side but that's the only flaw I can find in this beer. Another great beer from Sterkens!

Very sweet brew. Malty toffee in the aroma. A little thin texture. Smooth feeling. Nice delicious caramelly toffee and chocolate flavor. Too sweet in the end, though. Finishes with a strong filthy heavy feeling of malt and toffee.

Nice red color. More hops in the nose than I expected - slight spice to it. Not bad, pretty drinkable Belgian.
