clear dark amber colour; fine stable head; weird aroma of meat; piney and raisiney; mainly sweet with a hint of tartness; short and discrete undefinable aftertaste - don’t know what I should do with this ?!?

Bottle. Copper coloured with a slim and weak white head. Aroma is buttery, malty, caramel and metallic. Very watery mouthfeel; metallic taste, weak caramel, weak whiskey in there. Quite highly carbonated. Not particularly good.

(Bottle 25 cl) Amber coloured with a slightly beige head. Nice malty nose with a touch of caramel in the flavour. Rather anonymous "Speciale" - and far from the best of it’s style. 151197

Pours dark orange colored with a fizzy off-white head. Acidid malt aroma with caramel hints. Tart fruity flavor with distinctive Verhaeghe tones even though it’s not a sour ale! Quite dry and rather rancid. All right, but I definately prefer their other beers!!! Still very different and interesting!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A nut brown beer with a beutiful beige head. The aroma is sour with notes of caramel, nuts, and prunes. The flavor is sweet and sour with notes caramel, wood, prunes, and licorice. The end is rather hop bitter and dry but leaves with notes of prunes. A bit tart. I'm disappointed in this one - coming from Verhaeghe.

Aroma has apricot, mustard and licorice. Hopbitter flavor with licorice and some caramel. Just a bit of sweetness. Not the typical Belgian amber ale, but loads of flavor and I really liked it.

Loads of toffee in this brew. Extremely sweet, but still rather drinkable. If you drink too much of it, it will be cloying.
