3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
25cl bottle labeled BB 08 08 06 (no wonder why the previous ratings were from Oct ’06). Poured a medium amber color with smaller sized off white head. Aromas of roast, wood, burnt caramel, vinegar, and fruity. I would have guessed a Flemish Sour with this aroma. Tastes of caramel, toffee, fruity, and light vinegar. Finished lighlty tart. Call me crazy, but I was into the tart vinegar side of this one.

Thanks to hopdog. Pours a translucent amber with a small bubbly off white head. Aroma of caramel, vinegar, mixed fruits, nuts and some toffee. Flavor of toffee, metallic, some various fruits...not a whole lot more.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Copper colour, mediumzsized bubbly beige head. Aroma is saccarine along with sweet tropical fruits and slight toffeeish hints. Flavour is the same, but the sweeness has turned into a biting sourness and bitterness. So from sweet tropical fruit to dry, sour fruit. Also rich carbonation tickles the tongue. Mouthdrying finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber color. Nothing specials.
Aroma is better than the taste. Little sweet taste. Dry at the end.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It is like one beer to the palm family.
But better. A typical product off Verhaeghe.
A little bit sweet. This beer i liked all over 20 years.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Amber brown colour with minimal head. Some bread in the nose and some toastiness. Flavour was some malts but little else before ending slightly sour.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light hazy amber colour. Toasty, caramelly aroma. Quite toasty character. Oxidized maybe? Either way, not much to see here.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Excessive foaming on opening bottle. An amber red colour. Fruity flavour but essentially uninteresting. A feeling that life was too short to bother with this beer overwhelmed me. zzzzz

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber colored, little white head. Sweetness, berries, sourness, mild caramel and vinous tones in aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is not as good as aroma: starts with sweet cherry tones, ends with sour and lasting dryness. Reminds me of some lambics.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled (BB 08/2006)
Clear amber color, small white head. Burned butterscotch aroma, a bit malty. Dry, watery and very carbonated. Tart flavor, almost lambic-like. Some roasted notes in the aftertaste. Quite interesting, but not very good brew. There is maybe something which reminds about Duchesse De Bourgogne.
