Draught as Pannepeut @ Bier- & Eetcafé Gollem, Antwerp. Pours hazy ruby / copper brown with small off white-head. Clear aroma of caramel malt and fruit, with estery and hoppy notes. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, with heavy fruity notes and touches of yeast and hints of hops towards the finish. Pleasant, lingering, fruity and bitter aftertaste. Warming alcohol presence. A great beer!

Love this one. No flaws whatsoever. Wonderfully complex and very well balanced. Starts a bit sweet with roasted malts and lots of red fruit then goes to a dry tart flavor and ends with a bitter note. The alcohol is warming but never dominant and not a big part of the flavor. Carbonation is soft prickly. Had the 2013. Highly recommended.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2010 vintage, opened 8 July 2014. Pours opaque darkest brown with small short-lived head into a De Struise tulip. Aromas of dark fruits - cherries, dates, plums and a light touch of roasted malts and alcohol. Taste is very full-flavoured, sweet initially, then transitioning to dryness and a very light bitterness. Tastes are exactly the same as the aromas suggest: cherries, dates, plums, alcohol, roasted malts, plus a very light hint of vegemite. Medium bodied but the huge flavour makes up for any deficiency in body. This is an absolutely fantastic full-flavoured ale that stands up well against its well known cousin, Pannepot.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2012 bottle drank July 2014. Pours with almost no head or lace and a shade lighter brown than the Pannepot to reveal some red notes. Aroma is day old rustic bread behind simpler just ripe sweet red fruits and very mild baking spices compared to the Pannepot. Flavor is somewhat simple and cloying sweetness with very little spiciness or bitterness. There’s a hint of fruit pits and banana in the finish. The feel is thin, watery, fairly lifeless, and it finishes quickly. Not much alcohol noticeable. Alone I might like it more. It pales in comparison to the Pannepot though. Perhaps it’s more of a table beer but at 10%...

4.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
In the aroma I detect the mild smell of freshly baked bread and perhaps raisins. There is the sweet, but not syrupy, smell of alcohol. The appearance is caramel brown with a hint of orange. It is clear with absolutely no head. The taste was moderately sweet and quite pleasant. The palate is full bodied and complex with a thin drinkable texture. There was minimal carbonation with a lingering sweet finish. Overall this is truly a fantastic ale!
