Tap in Maastricht: A long time no see. A orange amber coloured beer with a high alcohol thats very drinkable.

Very nice Belgian ale. I had about six of them at de Boom in Alkmaar. You won’t say that there’s 7,5% in it. Sweet and spicy. The aftertaste is great too. Will drink this more often.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 Bottled from Mitra, Baarn, The Netherlands. Can?t believe i haven?t rated this one yet. Clear ruby colored, small off-white head. Beautiful nose of caramel malts, toffee, molasses. Sweet malty flavor, some hops, caramel. Bittersweet flavor. Actually nice to taste beers like this between all those overhopped beers these days. Very well balanced.

The beer looks nice. The color of the brew is a reddish orange. It isn’t really amber colored, it’s to red for that. The beer is crystal clear. I can look through it like its water. Not a single bubble can be seen in the beer. The beer pours a small layer of slightly tinted foam. The foam collapses quickly, to leave almost nothing. The smell of the beer is lovely. It’s very fruity and has a good sweetness. I smell banana, raisins, almonds, some distinguished smokey touches, alcohol, all really nice rather warming aromas. The beer is perfect for the late fall and early winter. It’s warming aromas, with some autumn touches to it, with the raisins, some spices I smell. It’s lovely I think. The taste is also nice. It has all those things the smell has to, but it’s more blended together. In the smell al aromas are individually perceptible, but in the taste all flavor a come together in a homogeneous, warming rich and sweet taste with a nice bitter pinch. The finish starts with a little taste of metal. The finish is quite long and is filled with the raisins and almonds mostly. The palate of the beer is exceptionally good. The beer has a medium-strong body, with a fizzy carbonation. The texture is rather slick I think. A nice beer it is.
