Tap at Les Trois 8. Pours a reddish amber with one finger of reddish tan head. Aroma is simple but pleasant: muted caramel malts, orange zest, banana, grassy hops. Taste is orange marmalade, plum, toasted bread, rye, herbal hops, lingering bitterness. Nice.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2008
tasting notes from last year. Explosive beer. Foams like a madman! Orangish colored pour with crazy white head that lingered quite a while. Some caramel and fruit on the nose, nothing spectacular. Some spice in the flavor. I wasnt really impressed with this at the time... I think I was looking for something else at the time and they were out. I should try it again for an up to date rating.

Orange-red colour. Fruity, malty, slight sweetness and cellar-like. A slight pleasant bitterness in the end. Medium-bodied. Easy to drink.

20110602 Oirschot Beerfest (33 cl bottle): A slightly cloudy amber-coloured beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is like amber-malt with caramle. Not to fresh. A sweet malty taste (caramel), full body, but with a sharp sour sense. A malty bitterness, not to much hopbitterness. BBE 01/2011
