Pours a chestnut brown with ruby edges and a light toffe colored head. The nose has candied sugars and carmelized brown sugar with a light metal twang. Very water, light yeast note and some faint pear. The taste is heavily sugar based, carmelized brown sugar and candied sugars primarily with a touch of yeast, light nut and pear in the back. Watery in taste and in body, thin and low carbonation.

Roodbruin bier met stevig schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig en licht zoet met iets van karamel en toffee. Komt wat waterig over helaas.

Maakun (2702) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2016
Bottle at home. Very dark brown with fluffy beige head. Some raisins, brown bread, light minerals, toffee, light dried fruits, cocoa, some herbs and tart untie berries. Light sweet and light bitter with a light tart touch. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Not bad but quite bland in the taste. I don’t say this often with Belgian beers, but this could benefit from a bit more sweetness. The best thing about this are the looks, but it has artificial coloring. Meh.

Slappe dubbel, proefde amper verschil met een blond bier. Ver weg smaak van caramel en gebrande mout, maar het bos net spa rood.
