HonusWagner (2155) - Florida, USA - APR 15, 2013
A slightly above average Belgian strong dark thing, with a bit of the usual sweet fruity estery component you expect and then some slight orange peel. Drinkable, but totally whatever.

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.

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 (3639) - Malm, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2017
Flaska frn SB. BBD 2017-10. Mrkt brnstensfrgad, en del sediment med lgt men kompakt och krmigt skum. Djup st doft av stt vitt vin, torkad frukt, mrk karamell och stlakrits. Mjuk rund med vl integrerad alkohol, smaken r torrare och inte lika utvecklad som doften med en lite trig torr eftersmak. Trevlig.

Au nez, elle nous dvoile des armes de fruits rouges et noirs, de raisin, de pruneau, de prune, dagrumes, 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 grill, de caramel, de levure et dpices. Son corps est huileux et sa carbonatation lgre pour un final doux et fruit. Amertume moyenne.

Draft sample at Bir&Fud Roma, Italy. 17.12.2016. Ciaone Alberto. Pour it dark amber color with small white head. Aroma figs, raisin, orange peel. Taste starts with sweet candy sugar, roasted nuts, spices, figs, plum just a pinch, finish with caramel note, nice Belgian feel all the time, really good hidden alcohol, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, sticky, average carbonation, long finish. Nice!

fischersfriend (7) - Statesville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 1, 2017 does not count
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.

Hazy orange with white head. Spicy, ginger bread and coriander. Sweet, thick, and cloying finish. Not bad!
