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.

I always had troubles buying this beer. The label didn’t invite me to do so. Although 5.1% it looked like a NA. But recently the brewery uses a complete new label (didn’t recognize it as this beer). At the moment the old label is still shown at RB. And what a surprise. It’s more like an english than a belgian ale. The aroma is caramel, hop perfume and very malty. Amber color, off-white head, good lace. Sweet but not annoying, fruity, hoppy, light bitter. A little dry finish. Nice beer.

Je cd-tjes laten branden door een pyromaan, is nooit grappig. Bij de selectie voor de mariniers buiten de boot vallen, is nooit grappig. Een stoelentester die het niet meer ziet zitten, is nooit grappig. Een chirurg die tijdens het amputeren van een arm de benen neemt, is nooit grappig. Een rioolwerker die zegt dat hij onder zijn niveau werkt, is nooit grappig. Iemand met astma een opblaaspop kado doen, is nooit grappig.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2003 Bottled at the Danish Beerfestival 2003: Orange coloured. Medium lasting head. Has a spicy and somewhat hoppy aroma. Has a full flavour. Fruityness and some vague sourness is present, but not unpleasant. The beer has some metallic notes. Light bitter in the end.

bierkoning (12387) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2003
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.

Bottled. Amber coloured. Lovely resiny balsamic aroma. Sweet and clean with lively honeyish finish. Complex, but perhaps too sweet and very discrete.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2006
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.
