Dufter af wienerbrødsstang. Karamel og søde bagte rosiner. Lidt gæret. Orange farve med fint vedvarende skum og masser af sedimenter. Smager af wienerbrødsstang. Fyldig og kraftig vinter øl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma has hint of overfermentation as well as the taste. But the balance between swetness and a tiny bitterness is good. Overall a fine saison.

This beer is a bit too sweet. It has a full-bodied texture and the oak taste is present. It fails a bit on its heavyness.

Sammy (10797) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2012
Appropriately cold night to have this aged 2 year plus beer. Lace lines. A bit of a foamer. Pours orange with a it of yeasty head. Great aromas: orange, grapey yeast, booze, nutmeg,coriander, white pepper, Cinnamon. Smooth mouthfeel, slightly drying finish concomitant with the wood oak to round it out.

Draft at craft ale house. Pours hazy copper with a small white head and tons of carbonation. The aroma has caramel, apricot, a little vanilla, a little oak. The taste is medium sweet, lightly sour. There is some apricot, pear, even a little fig. A real nice take on the style.

Same aromas that the PBA. Ok overall. Pours foggy light amber with no head. Nicer, fresher taste. Typical belgian yeasty taste. Freah citrusy, bready. Nice!
