A dark amber beer with a beutiful head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with notes of coriander, and sour lemon befor a dry hoppy end sets in.

(Bottle 25 cl) My sample at 4,5% ABV. Dark golden with a fairly large head. Rather light in body with a dry hoppiness. Quenching if not overly exciting beer. 300695

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Keg] Red amber color, with a thin persistent collar. Good and easy to drink, because of some dryness and astringency (and a light oak note), but not impressive.

Bottled (BB 10/2005)
Copper brown, not much head. Strange aroma for a Belgium - rye, barley with some sweetness and ashy notes. Ryeish, malty flavor. Really Märzen-like!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy amber; yeasty, dry maltiness on the nose. Spritzy, slightly cakey malt, allspice, hop dryness. Intended to be consumed alongside mussels, and alongside meules belgiques the yeastiness dropped out of the beer, which to me was an improvement. The mussels improved the beer, but the beer didn't really do anything for the mussels.
