3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A medium brown with orange tons and loads of particulates floating in it. A lumpy tan head. A sweet dessert smell, like rum poured over a rich spice cake. Taste is oak, candi sugar and alcohol.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Large, fluffy, dense tan head that lingers for some time. Mirky reddish brown in color. Malty somewhat alcoholic aroma. Despite the large head, not overcarbonated. Moderated to full bodied flavor. Flavor is malty, fruity, bitter and yeasty Finishes bitter and somewhat caramel and chocolaty. This is a good belgian ale. It lacks some richness and complexity, but has a very clean finish for the complexity it does have.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled: Golden coloured. Unclear. Way too much head, even though you pour the beer gentle. Yeast, fruit (apple) and sirup in the aroma. Vague fruity, alcaholdense and malty flavour. Alcahol is too dominant for my likings. Very vague aftertaste. Alcahol is dominant again. Not a beer I'll drink again.

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!
