3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very cloudy caramel-brown color with a large foamy beige head that produced some lacing. The aroma was sweet ripe cherries, pears and berries with faint molasses and caramel. The flavor was intensely bitter, tart and sour with sharp cherry, lemon and prune notes and a slightly medicinal undertone. The finish was long, tart, bitter and sour. Medium body. Ok.

Must’ve gotten a bad batch of this brewery. This stuff is absolutely brutal. Burnt cardboard. Expensive drainpour.

Another deplorable t Smitje brew. Burnt cardboard and rotten vegetables abound in every facet of this brew. Drainpour.

Pours a murky brown color with an off-white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, caramel, dark fruit, and honey. Complex sweet flavor with dark fruits, honey, Belgian yeast, cocoa and some molasses. Thick and creamy. Hard to believe it’s 12%.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Talk about from one extreme to another - the beer before was a tropical piss and now this. Age a small wedge of world champion aged gouda to set my mouth up. Yum! Worked perfect. Poured with a tan head. No lace. Hazy brown color. Odd mix of aromas: dark, ripe fruits, dark malts, a hint of wet cardboard, fudge, nuts, and and cocoa. Flavor was a little lighter. More of the dark, ripe fruits, some yeast, and honey. Soft body with a bit of tang from carbonation. Not much apparent alcohol surprisingly. Not the heavy hitter I would’ve expected either. Great beer though. Could get to thinking this is a session beer only to get carried out or stumble to bed.

7/14/10. On tap, very last draw from the keg. Yeasty aroma with plenty of Belgian fruitiness. The flavor is crazy Belgian with huge bitterness and plenty of fruitiness, even a touch of alcohol.
