4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
You can buy a big bottle, but it is best bought on tap at the Staminet de Garre in Bruges, where it is served with a little cheese. And it’s nigh-on perfect, although stronger than it tastes - beware this beauty. A lovely amber with a deep white head, rich aroma, a perfect bitter attack and no bitter aftertaste - just baked fruit and spice and beery happiness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Staminee De Garre. Pours hazy amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, with fruity and flowery notes, and touches of hops. Sweet flavour of caramel malt and fruit, with bitter, hoppy notes and touches of yeast and flowers. Bittersweet aftertaste. Warming alcohol presence. Quite boozy but OK, actually better than most beers from the same brewery.
