Bijl (398) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2017
Donkerrood/bruin, crèmekleurige schuimkraag, sprankelend koolzuur, iets troebel. Aroma: Mouten, karamel, fruitig, bosbes, honing. Smaak: Fruitig zoet, aardbei, iets zuurtje van iets als bosbes, honing, moutig, karamel, en iets kruidig. Een beetje alcohol warmte en een lichte bitter. Medium body, prikkelig koolzuur , afdronk is zoetig en fruitig. Een apart bier... erg lekker.

Ysok02 (1262) - Mons, BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2017
Robe brune, mousse crémeuse, peu persistante. Nez plus malté et chocolaté que la précédente, avec toujours un fond de miel et de fruits secs. Bouche à l’attaque aussi ronde, plus torréfiée, bulle onctueuse et finale miellée. Deux bières différentes mais avec de nombreuses similitudes.

RoyDeSmet (12) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2016
Pours very dark. Nice thick white foam. Smells soapy, kind of like a Karmeliet Tripel. Fizzy beer. Good ’bok’. Has got hints of the ’original’ Barbar beer.

AdolfoCC (225) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - NOV 28, 2016
APARIENCIA: de color ámbar profundo con algunos destellos marrones a contraluz, se alcanza a observar cierta actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color marfil de mediana baja retención, con burbujas compactas. AROMA: notas a azúcar no procesada, caramelo, ligeramente la miel, algo especiado como anís, frutos rojos y algo cítrico como naranja. SABOR: nuevamente, el dulzor presente y predomina, notas a azúcar no procesada, caramelo, miel, frutos rojos y el gusto a naranja marcado, algo similar al licor Cointreau o Grand Marnier pero no tan intenso, anís; el retrogusto queda un amargor medio bajo, ligeramente amaderado y dulce. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo ligero alto, mediana carbonatación. Ligeramente se alcanza a percibir el alcohol en boca y garganta sin llegar a ser agresivo. RESUMEN: interesante para el estilo, buena a secas.
