Somewhat confused beer. Orange and spice like a tripel, dried fruit spiciness and rich dark flavors and aromas like a quad, with perhaps a hint of lactic sourness like a lambic. No reason it has to adhere to any specific style ... some of my favorites are American hopped tripels, or lambic IPAs, or any of the complex hybrids that seem to be popping up all over. Maybe just a tad more alcoholic than I expected. Nice, drinkable, great complement for the duck I and jerked chicken that I served with it.

Dark amber colour with a thin white head.

Tap at Salon piva. Rich, complex intense mix of flavours, mostly malty - caramelly, chocolatey, fruity. Full bodied with lots of sweetness, which is however balanced by med-high bitterness. Some of the fruity character also seems to be fruit derived. Overall a really clean balanced rich tasty beer. L_Lovecraft (616) - - MAR 26, 2017
Initially a bit of grass, after some time more dried fruits and spices, amber with a thin ocher head, medium body, carbonation is soft, raisin, caramel, quite sweet, pleasant warming in the final...maybe a bit young but good. ttoadee (1511) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2017
Brown pour, slight tan head. Nose is dark fruit and some spice. Bittersweet. Middle is plums, raisins, dark malt, and mild dark sugar. Finish is mellow bittersweetness. Vignale (3858) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2017
Flaska från SB. BBD 2017-10. Mörkt bärnstensfärgad, en del sediment med lågt men kompakt och krämigt skum. Djup söt doft av sött vitt vin, torkad frukt, mörk karamell och sötlakrits. Mjuk rund med väl integrerad alkohol, smaken är torrare och inte lika utvecklad som doften med en lite träig torr eftersmak. Trevlig.

Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours hazy brown with off-white head. Aroma of raisins, caramel, some chocolate. Tastes sweet with little bitterness. Medium bodied. ddesprez (87) - Saint-Marcel, FRANCE - JAN 30, 2017
Au nez, elle nous dévoile des arômes de fruits rouges et noirs, de raisin, de pruneau, de prune, d’agrumes, de malt et de caramel. En bouche, on y retrouve des saveurs douces et complexes de fruits comme les pruneaux ou les raisins, de malt, de grillé, de caramel, de levure et d’épices. Son corps est huileux et sa carbonatation légère pour un final doux et fruité.

Nice! fischersfriend (30) - Statesville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 1, 2017
Aroma is surprisingly weak.
Appearance may be a turn off for some given it is somewhat full of sediments. Doesnt bother me but it may bother some people.
Taste is good. Its is orange infused and flavorful. Quiet tasty.
Leaves a very smooth refreshing palate.
Overall a good selection but it is somewhat pricey . A good brew to try and have occassionally. aleksander9 (1789) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2016
Hazy orange with white head. Spicy, ginger bread and coriander. Sweet, thick, and cloying finish. Not bad!
