COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our brew-master was born and raised in Newport Belgium. In the early days around 1600, a lot of women were accused of witch craft and got burned alive... The city council of Newport asked Urbain to develop a session beer for the two yearly evocation of a Newport witch called Jeanne Panne. Jeanne was as ugly as can be and had copper coloured hair. Elements enough for Urbain to create a rather exciting ale.

Pours a hazy medium orangish amber color. Aroma is lightly malty, hoppy, yeasty, with a touch of fruit. Flavor is a nice mixture of malts and fruits.

Tmoney99 (10399) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Draft sample. Poured clear reddish copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeast fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

DrSilverworm (5898) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2014
On tap at Dutch’s, rated from memory. Keg arrived "aged" thanks to the importer. Reddish color, with a good khaki head. Smooth, lighter carbonation, medium to bigger body. Kind of a light tart taste, lightly spicy. Some toasty, earthy, spicy aromas. Not bad.

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a clear deep amber color with a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma and flavor have toasted bread, fruity esters, cocoa powder, yeast, caramel some earthy bitterness. The finish is slightly dry and soft. This was a bit disappointing from these guys.

b3shine (5121) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Draft to snifter at Dutch’s. Looks good; a hazy orangish brown with foamy off-white head. Smells of Belgian yeast, malt, and a bit of dark fruit with a bit of earthiness as well. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Okay.

tricksta_p (872) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2014
Aroma of malts, red/dark fruits, caramel, yeast, wood, brown sugar, slight chocolate. Flavour is pretty sweet, red fruits, spicy. Body is nice and thick. I really enjoyed drinking this brew.

ElManana (204) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2014
Nice vigorous carbonation. Dull copper color. Grainy aroma with a hint of fruity yeast character. Flavor is rather hoppy, but not overwhelming at all. Crisp hop finish. Pretty nice stuff.

Bottle @Bierhuyske. Pours amber/brown with nice foam. Little sweet aroma. Taste light sweetness, some caramel. Not much aftertate.

kastanjebruin bier met minimale kaki kraag. Die wel een redelijk aroma af geeft, echter wel voornamelijk zoetig (rode) fruitigheid en mouten. Deze zoetigheid komt ook als eerste weer terug in de smaak, naast een matige/redelijke bitterheid. verder heeft het een medium body, is het glad in de mond van textuur, normale co2, en een zoete afdronk. maar over het algemeen valt het mij een beetje tegen.
