3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Darke bronze ale with maple syrup and off-white, thin head; strong sweet fruits in the nose, candied dates, bananas, chocolate and clear presence of resinous maply syrup. Taste likewise: sweet with exotic fruits, resinous mouthfeel with spicy notes, maple syrup unmistakable, sugary and even cloying finish with some floral hops. Not unlike their Ultradélice. Too sweet for me and I don’t like maple syrup very much, at least not in such an obtrusive way.

Bottle from Utobeer. Interesting one. Oily. Over-sweet. Not well balanced. Not exactly my cup of tea. A cute label tho.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured at Willems. Cap says 18/03/2014. Looks a bit like a Cola knock-off with a fizzing away beige-head. Makes me think of mazout (Coca-Cola & pils mix). Smells like cheap Cola knock-off, rotting dark fruits, overdone brown banana, wet leaves, very cheap soda. Tastes of cheap soda syrup, rotting dark fruits, Cola, spoiled yoghurt, brown banana, rotting uneatable brries. <body seems a bit off. I cannot shake the mazout / off feel to it. Ugh but drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Caramel, raisin. Plenty of Maple syrup, rich cereals, dark fruit, sweet finish. Interesting maple twist on a Belgian strong, the sweetness totally covers the alcohol but slowly gets quite overwhelming.
