33 cl bottle (attractive!) from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. pintbypint (3634) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
App.: Deep mahogany with a frail light tan head.
Aroma: Tart fruitiness, nutty brown sugar and rum dark-like notes, organic acids that hint of infection, figs, apricots, some tart berries, alcohol, not what I expected for the style.
Palate: Medium body, fairly sparse, floppy effervescence, a little astringent.
Flav.: Similar to the nose with lots of bright fruitiness, hazelnuts, some brown sugar, alcohol, berries, apricots, some pear drop/solvent, less deep than the nose in terms of malts, no hop notes to speak of; off-dry with tartness and some bitterness than is masked by the acidity, with a decent malty, kinda fruity finish.
Like the name implies, this beast is made up of many parts that don’t really go together well.
330ml brown bottle from Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Brown pour, some haze. Nicely formed beige head, creamy edges, good stickiness. Spicy nose, caramel, some chocolate malt, nutty, hints of fruit. Taste has chocoalte and nutty malt notes, cherries and assorted fruits. Dries right out at the end, late yeasty notes. Carbonation is on the high side, body is medium. The alcohol stays well hidden. Overall a drinkable Belgian ale, but nothing I would seek out again. drpimento (3630) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Interesting beer. Poured perhaps a touch cold, with a small to medium sized, cream-colored head that soon settles to some swirls and a ring with a tiny bit of lace. Color is a cloudy brown amber opaque in the wider parts of the glass. Aroma is a muted combo of malt, fruit, apricots, plums, yeast, wine. Flavor is a blend of those qualities with interesting interplay between sweet and carbonic tang being slightly more dominant than bitter. Very rich. Body is big, but the sweet, tang and bitter create high points that along with its richness make it a little overpowering. Carbonation is good taken alone. Finish is medium in length. No alcohol warmth. One and done. beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2010
Pours a murky amber color with a medium beige head. Aroma of caramel and toasted malt. Flavor of caramel and toasted malt. The body is medium and the carbonation is soft. It’s definitely not a bad beer, but this one just didn’t do it for me. ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2008
Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Pours out in a hazy reddish amber colour with a small white foam. Fruity and very hoppy aroma of grass, blood-grape, pepper and paint with sweet undertones of blood-oranges. Medium-bodied with hoppy notes of blood-grape and grass with touches cookies and yellow fruits. long bitter finish of wet grass, grapefruit and orange-peels. Tasty!

Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours a clear reddish-amber color with a small, foamy, tan head that settles to a thin, patchy film. Micro-spot lacing dots the glass. Aromas are boozy for a relatively small beer, showing grainy alcohol notes of a base of pale cereal malts, toast, oregano, and an odd, briny sort of funk. Hints of pickles come to mind. Flavors again are grainy, in a alcoholic sort of way, with a strange, mildly tart funk, dusty yeast, and notes of sage and oregano. The palate is thin, bordering on watery, sporting moderate carbonation and a drying, boozy finish. Eh, I’m not impressed in the least bit with this one. rederic (3337) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2010
330ml bottle, hazy dark amber hue, with a thick beige head, yeasty, toasted, caramel, biscuity, bready malt, cookie dough nose with some fruity dark dried raisin, fig and toffee accents, with a soft winey, oaky, tannic note, with some spicy, cakey, wheat muffin aromas follow through on a medium-bodied palate with a warmth yeasty, faint winey, fruity, sweet caramelized, toasted, biscuity malt character with some dried raisin, fig, date, cookie dough, toffee backbones, with some faint oaky, tannic undertones and some bran cake, subtle nutmeg spicy accents, leading towards a warming, malty, caramel, toffee, faint lingering winey, vinous, fruity finish. dfinney23 (3268) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bought at a tiny wine shop on Kauai. Poured a deep, hazy amber into ridiculous little hotel glasses. Caramel and fruit aroma. Taste an interesting mix of sweet and tart with noticeable yeast.
