EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 8, 2014
Ambre claire, effervescence moyenne, col blanc fin persistant. Bien que le caramel lemporte sur le reste, on notera la prsence dpices grce auxquelles une amertume moyennement prononce se fait plus que sentir.

Maarten1993 (1008) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2014
Drank with Rik and Marijn at Cafe Hoegaarden 30/1/2014. Okay beer to start the evening. Light taste. It looks spicy, troebel, in Dutch. Caramel taste. Good mix between bitter and sweet. Good beer, though lacks the depth and complexity of a great beer.

KyotoLefty (9645) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle from Yamaichi. Fruity, spicy nose. Minerals, light citrus, grassy hop, dry caramel malt. Rather typical Belgian amber. Clear amber with a low, fine head. Sweet caramel malt, stone fruits, light orange, some minerals. Light and subtle, spices not overwhelming, nicely bitter finish. Decent stuff. Ive been pleasantly surprised with all their beers so far.

330ml Bottle at home on 19th January 2014 - Christmas gift. Pours deep copper with off-white non-lacing foam. Mild, malty aromas with some nuttiness. Malty in-mouth with plenty of caramel, butterscotch, rye-bread notes and touch of salt. Bittersweet finish with long lasting sweetness and cooked veg. Find carbonation and medium body.

77ships (8517) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ Gruut bar. Lovely glass. Appearance is clear copper amber with a very creamy white head that never disappears. Smells of brown sugar, leaves, plenty of herbs & caramel apples. Taste is pretty simple, herbal, candied apples, Moroccan dried fruits, candied apples, plenty of brown sugar, herbal notes dominate all. Fluffy body. Pretty simple & basic, lacks a bit pizzazz but enjoyable all the same.

Bottle. Nose of caramel, prunes, and some herbs. Dark amber/brown color, little head. Moderate dark fruit, brown sugar, caramel, bread. Medium body. A bit amped up in flavors and alc. for an amber. Tastes more like a bock. Okay.

@Gent, amber met witte kraag
matig zoet, licht bitter, ietwat caramel, niet zon geslaagd biertje, de smaken vind ik wat minder, niet slecht maar ook geen topper
