Jado (748) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2016
330 ml bottle. Dark brown body topped by a fluffy cream-coloured head. Aromas of cherry, plums, vinegar, raisins and a little funk. Moderately sour taste at first, followed up by some dark bread and fruit notes. However there’s also a bit of a metallic twang at the back end that detracts from it somewhat, although that diminishes as it warms. Okay but not a top line Belgian brown.

Almost opaque dark brown with ruby hue, small frothy tan head, mostly diminishing, light lacing; aroma of roasted malts, sourish syrup, overripe fruit, brown sugar; taste is medium sweet and sour, berriesruity, sour cherries, syrupy, with average duration, joined by some light bitterness in the aftertaste, fruity till the end; medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation; a decent Brown ale.

Strong alcohol feel in the mouth. bubble packed on the tongue. Soapy component makes it unpleasant.

Nicolas_M (170) - BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2015
Aroma is weak, but I found some hint of sugar and... Silicon... Not a good signe. Taste is limited to I-don’t-know-what-is-it and alcohol, plenty of alcohol (which is strange for a 7% beer)

Mousse retombe vite brune. Odeur de cassonade. Floteuse en fin de bouche. On goute bien l’alcool. Pas interressante

Deep ruby colored, bit cloudy, small off white head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty bit of spices and some acidity. Taste is low to medium sweet caramel, some toffee, dark fruits, some acidity, spice and yeast. Low on bitterness. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation.

It is an excellent belgian ale which has a fruity and sweet smell. Also, excellent soft and sweet taste.

VDuquerroux (1087) - Airvault, FRANCE - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A clear dark brown beer with mahogany hues ; big creamy off-white head with yeast dust on top; good retention. Spicy aroma, caramel, roast, acid, biscuit, grapefruit. Medium sweet, acid note, light bitter. Medium body, thin silky texture, average carbonation, sweet finish, acid note. Overall, pleasant, good belgian spicy yeasty beer, refreshing, a bit "thin".

Alengrin (4163) - BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2014
A brown ale with a long history, brewed since 1958 by Van Assche, then taken over by Villers and finally, in 1998, by Huyghe; originally called Vieille Villers Dubbel and tasted as such years ago. Misty brown beer with off-white foam and yeasty, sweetish profile with a subtle acidity, probably due to added lactic acid or something, estery, dryish finish. Far from being the most convincing example of the style.

Gusher. Poured a cola reddish brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, roast malt. Medium body, flavour is medium sweet, a bit sour. Seemed more off than intentional.
