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.

SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2010
11.2 oz bottle poured into my Piraat tulip glass. Best before 4/10/2008. A-Translucent sunny orange body that pours with 2 finger creamy white head. Head slowly fades to 1 finger and has excellent retention. Body is extremely cloudy and filled with large white yeast particles and some black yeast sediment. Tiny bubbles can be seen constantly rising to the top. S- Nose is somewhat mild but distinctively dominated by citrus such as orange and grapefruit. Soft spices such as cinnamon can also be detected. T-Lots of orange upfront with other tropical fruits also present. A mild spiciness accents a solid yeast backbone in the background. Medium hops bitterness and flavor appear for the finish and compliment the already present flavors. Soft hop bitterness, subtle fruitiness, yeast, and hints of alcohol linger. P- Low to medium carbonation and body is full of soft, smooth, and creamy yeast. O- This is my favorite of the three commonly available offerings from this brewery. This is a nice soft brew that I found to be quite enjoyable. I will probably purchase this one again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-21-2007 21:29:00

piscator34 (1965) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 30, 2010
Bottled sample via lubiere. Copper in colour with a hint of red. Quite strong carbonation. Aromas are od dried apricot, red apple skin, and savory cooking spices. Flavors suggest brown sugar and white pepper, along with other miscellaneous dried fruit. Fruity but drying finish with a more herbal (as opposed to hoppy) bitterness. Fairly light bodied. Pretty good.

Dorwart (2374) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2010
Thick sickly sweet and malty aroma. Lots of caramel and ripe dark fruit with some sweet tarts and a hint of vegetables. Minimal head and carbonation. Color is a hazy copper brown. Rather lively fizz in the mouth which was unexpected. Light alcohol presence. Rather dry with a decent herbal bitterness. I would have expected this to be much sweeter based upon the aroma. Some roasted grains and tea leaves with a bit of yeastiness. Finishes dry with a hint of spices. This brew seems to be all over the place but is really not all that bad.

MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - DEC 3, 2009
(bottle) Hazy, orange-copper golden coloured hue with lots of ugly floaties and a big slightly tanned foamy head. Sweet and coriander-spicy aroma with cara-malt, light fruity and floral notes. Moderately sweet flavour with a tinge of acidity, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Cara-malty, biscuity and slightly yeasty taste with loads of coriander and subtle fruity notes; moderately sweet malty and spicy finish. Too spicy for my liking. 03.XII.09
