COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the original beer from Ecaussinnes. 7% alcohol. It is spiced, but you don't really taste the spices. Nice amber colour, lightly caramelised with a light bitter taste at the end. A very nice beer, recommended by Michael Jackson.

crossovert (7909) - Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
750ml synthetic corked and caged brown bottle. IT was a royal pain in the arse to get the extra long cork out. It pours a firey orange red color with a billowing, foamy white head. It recedes pretty slowly but only leaves a small amount of lacing. The smell definitely could be better. It has the smell of lemon sanitizer with a bit of grape and bread. A fruity but astringent smell. The flavor is interesting. It is very sugary. There is a ton of caramel and some nuttiness up front. There is also some golden raisin and apple in there. The mouthfeel is a bit thin, but this is perhaps a bit past its optimal freshness date. It is an okay Belgian ale, nothing spectacular. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-30-2010 01:16:23

Enjoyit (3483) - Vadum, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2011
Unclear brown of color with an off white head. An aroma of malt, bread, sweets and weak spice. A flavor of malt, bread, bread and weak toffee.

FatPhil (9617) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 10, 2011
330ml bottle (Garre, Bruges)
6 Orange zersy blonde aroma, not as sweet as you’d expect from an ambree. Softer with some yeast.
4 Rich honey colour, large self-supporting creamy head. Add haziness by adding yeast if you want.
6 Bready yeasty focus, even when poured mostly clear. Side tastes of liquorice, and a bit of banana once the yeast’s in.
3 Refreshing palate, crisp carbonation. Liquoricy bitterness in the finish.
13 More a blond with a twist than an amber.

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Cloudy orange, thin ring of foam. Honey, brown sugar aroma. Flavor is not as sweet as I feared, but still pretty sweet. Honey, molasses and booze. Not horrible, but not my cup of tea.

Bottle from Mitra Bergen. Dark brown body with thinnish head. Nose of sugar, malts and caramel. Taste of malts, caramel and some bitter. Quite spicey but very smooth. Enjoy it-with a nice kick in the end.
