Red-amber colored clear bear. Nice slightly off-white creamy head that slowly disappears. Fruity aroma. In the beginning I associate the taste with dark fruits, mainly prums but they fastly disappear and make place for a mild bitter, empty finish. Above average but not too much. larsniclas (7075) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2007
Hazy amber with a small, beige head.
Yeasty and slightly roasted aroma.
Yeasty and earthy flavour with fruity notes. Dry, grassy and a bit metallic. davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - MAY 11, 2008
Appearance: amber copper color. Medium, lasting and beige head.
Aroma: caramel malts smells with reminiscences to vanilla, some toffee, butterscotch and ripe fruits. Sticky aroma.
Flavor: caramel and light toast taste in the start, reminiscences of milk with coffee, butterscotch, vanilla and toffee. Yeasty progress. Mineralized aftertaste.
Palate: medium body, smooth texture and light to medium carbonation.
Remark: nice and sticky beer, with remarkable toffee and milk touch. But low hoppy and some mineralized excess. Sigmund (7470) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2008
330 ml bottle, simply called Brunehaut Ambrée, Bière Biologique (Organic Beer), courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6.5%. Hazy amber to brown coloured beer, with a fluffy off-white head. Pours very fizzy. Nice aroma of spices, yeast and oak. Fizzy mouthfeel. The flavour is moderately spicy and slightly fruity, with very moderate hops. The alcohol is well hidden. Not too bad. Finn (7547) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2009
Flaske 0,33 l fra Vinmonopolet. Gyldenbrun med litt rødskjær. Høyt kremaktig skum som fester seg til glasset. Sterk fruktig & krydret aroma. Lite kullsyre. Behagelig smak med islett av malt og frukt. Fruktig bitter avslutning. Bra!

Draught at Doll Dress. Dark amber with orange. Dry, spicy aroma with lots of grassy hops. Earthy, dry, grassy flavor with a touch of sour. Fruity and very restrained. Not at all sweet, but a bit too sour--old? Crisp body. Decent. Benzai (15606) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle @ home shared with DutchDrebus. Dark amber color. Decent smell and taste. Low carbo and body low to medium. Not really special but decent. Alengrin (5369) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
Artisanal Wallonian ’spéciale belge’, the classic, almost standardized genre of Belgian amber ales. Yellowish white, irregular, sticky, stable foam, ’real’ deep amber colour, almost copper, misty. Aroma of freshly cut apples, banana, grapefruit, walnuts, caramel, liquorice, cinnamon, leather and a faint smokey accent. Crispy fruity taste, citrussy, caramel malts, in the middle strongly nutty like a pale ale, light smokiness, finishing in a herbal, medium long hop bitterness. Now this is what a traditional spéciale belge should taste like - the great (commercial) icon Palm Spéciale can even learn from it. MoritzF (9901) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - DEC 3, 2009
(bottle) Hazy, amber colour with a big and light-beige foamy head. Sweet and yeasty caramel-malty aroma with a distinctive nutty touch and notes of caramel and ginger. Sweet flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Cara-malty and nutty taste with toffee and yeasty and spicy accents; moderately sweet, malt-accented finish with shy hoppy spots. Good. 03.XII.09 Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2010
Bottle. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Malty with caramel notes, some light bread y tones, a bit bitter and some lighter sweet fruit esters but a bitter finish. Nice session ale.
