TASTE: similar to the aroma, with a rich malt flavor (toffee-like, slight toasty) and esters (plums). slight peppery flavor. medium to medium-high bitterness with a dry finish. PALATE: medium body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: a nice belgian-like dubbel. visionthing (5656) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2018
37,5cl bottle (as "CERVEZA ALE") from Carrefour, Finestrat. Pours copper coloured with a modest off-white head. Malty and fruity aroma with plenty of ripe bananas, caramel and hints of dried fruits. Weird hybrid somehow, the massive banana makes me think of wheat, but that should be present. It's certainly fruity, but not very Belgian in my book. Sweet, but certainly drinkable still. mile (4089) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2018
Bottle. Dark golden, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty - some wheat and sweetish aroma, some caramel - light bread, light fruitiness Body is medium, malty - light wheat and sweetish flavor, some caramel - faint bread, light fruitiness. Finish is short to average, malty - some wheat and sweetish, some caramel and light fruitiness. Quite one-dimensional, lacks character. Way too sweet for me. angel77 (4152) - oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 18, 2017

bottle from el corte ingles. label says CERVEZA ALE instead of jacometrezo but color and design and abv is the same.
clear amber, smooth offwhite to light brown head.
Malty and fruity aroma, like a mild belgian ale, only perhaps a little bit more clean.
flavor is malts, bread, rye, faint roasted malts, quite tasty, not much fruits, but it suits the beer well, let's call this a very dry version of a belgian ale. taste reminds me of the vienna type of beer, due to the clean yeast and the lack of dried dark fruits.
