3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light brown color with medium and qucikly diminishing head (no lacing). Light aroma of sourness and typical belgian yeast. Taste is better, firstly it’s appears sourness, after that quite pleasant fruitiness (prune) and spicy notes (lots of clove). Good carbonation. Quite long sweet-sour finish.
After warming I found some smoky and tobacco.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2013 On tap at Strefa Piwa (Beer Zone) in Kraków. Pours a cloudy brown colored body with a finger-width, creamy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is bready caramels with some toast and dark fruits as well as a slight sour note. Flavor is similar. Slightly sour caramels with a light roasty note and some dark fruits. A bit bready with a touch of earth before this finishes tart and dry with some roast and touches of caramel. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and an active carbonation. Overall, a contaminated beer. The dubbel base is there, but this has soured a bit since kegging. Could be the lines, but this bar’s other beers are okay. Not terrible as is, but I assume this would be much better without the sourness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2013 On tap @ Setka Pub Poznan, Poland during the world premiere. Pours hazy dark amber with negligible off-white head. Clear aroma of malt with hoppy and fruity and caramel notes. Malty flavour with flowery, apple notes. A little sourish, unfortunately in the aftertaste, too. Could be better, but decent, anyway.
