nathanvc (357) - Brugge, BELGIUM - APR 17, 2017
Pours hazy brown/amber with a short-lasting, off-whtie head. The aroma contains dried fruits, grapefruit, wine, butterscotch, malt, some wood and spices. It tastes light bitter and medium sweet with a hint of sour. The finish is long, sweetish and warming due to the alcohol. Full body, oily/sticky texture, medium carbonation. Complex in aroma and just managing to not become too cloying.

VueltaBirrista (94) - Murcia, SPAIN - APR 13, 2017
La Classic es una cerveza de carbonatacin ms bien alta lo que le confiere una amplia corona de esponjosa espuma color vainilla. Su color es hipntico, entre marrn y rojizo. En nariz tiene mucha complejidad. Bueno, todo en ella es complejo. Huele a fruta muy madura. Melocotn e higo. Adems hay otras notas dulzonas como el caramelo. En boca confirma su carcter frutal, como he dicho fruta muy dulce y madura, incluso pasas, y ojo a su final que depara una agradable sorpresa ya que sin darte casi cuenta pasas de los dulces afrutados a un agradable y persistente amargor que redondea una de las mejores cervezas que he probado nunca.

Kriddie (11) - NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2017
Bottle from Verheyen, Poppel (BE). Pours a very dark amber with a dark brown hue. Foam is tan/beige in colour, dissipating quickly into a long-lasting film that remained the entire time. Aroma: Sweet, raisins, dried fruit, banana, figs, faint aroma of the sourness of wine coming through, with a slightly metallic smell encapsulating it all. One of the few times where I didnt mind the metallic though. Taste; Very sweet at first, then dark malts, raisins, caramel and a slight bitter. Aftertaste of the same, accompanied by a slight hint of red wine. Overall, this one is a bit too sweet for my liking, but the qualities underlying this sweetness still make this brew shine. A very fine Belgian Dark. The up-front sweetness quickly gives way for a very sophisticated taste.

RudiGR (23) - Dendermonde, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2017
Gekocht op 28/01/2017 bij bierhandel Verhelst in Dendermonde. Gouden Carolus Classic Collectors Edition 2016 - De Vossenjacht is een helder rood biertje dat een normale hoeveelheid schuim met een licht-amber kleurtje produceert, het ziet er romig-moussig uit en blijft goed aan het glas kleven. Het schuim zakt na een tijdje wel in elkaar. Je kan tamelijk wat fijne CO2 belletjes zien opborrelen. Het aroma van de Gouden Carolus Classic Collectors Edition 2016 - De Vossenjacht is zoetig met wat stroop en karamel, fruitig met lichtjes krieken op jenever, geroosterde en karamelmout en een wijnachtige toets. De smaak is zoet met rozijnen, de krieken op jenever en ook moutig, gebrand en karamel, ook wat lichtjes jeneverbes kruidig. In de mond geeft Gouden Carolus Classic Collectors Edition 2016 - De Vossenjacht een volle smaak met een olieachtige tot romige textuur en is hij normaal prikkelend. Zeker en vast een harmonieus biertje. De nasmaak vloeit uit is zoet met wat karamel en toch wat bitterig. Ook de jeneverbes zit in de nasmaak verweven. Een zeer lekker drankje dat niet verveelt.
