3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber color, with yeast sediments, which I poured. Quick dissipating creamy head. Nicely blended flavors of fruity yeast, bready malt, anise, ginger, molasses and herbs. Balanced towards the sweet side but with a touch of bitterness at the finish. Earthiness worthy of a Belgian artisanal as well, somewhat reminiscent of De Dolle and Chouffe beers.
Bottles from Carrefour Supermarket, Brussels, Belgium and De Bierkoning, Paleisstraat 125,1012 RK Amsterdam, Netherlands. Cloudy amber coloured with a large white foamy head. It has a warming spiced fruity flavour followed by toffee and sweet spiced fruit on the smooth warming finish. A good beer with a great bottle label. Hopverdju (1642) - BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2017

Bottle from Carrefour Brugge. Some hazy brown with medium head. Yeasty, nutty, quite round bitterness. jice (382) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAY 6, 2017
Beau col de mousse, mais s’estompe très vite. Sucre et alcool dominent avec quelques arômes fruités. Belle étiquette. BlackHaddock (7956) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2017
33cl bottle:BBD 19 May 18. Poured into a Westmalle chalice at home on 18 Mar 17. Thought I didn’t let any sediment out, but the glass held a misty golden brew with a few ’floaters’ within: the head was wispy affair and very thin/weak. Peach and sweet orange esters in the nose, semi-sweet fruitiness in the taste. Some spiciness in the flavourings also: different and almost interesting, a little too sweet for it’s own good though. Like a thin, sweet, alcoholic marmalade.

Bottle shared. Slight hazy golden with big white head. Peach, alcohol, sweet malts, light herbs, dry grassy going into an almost metallic finish. Over medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium bodied with a bit fizzy carbonation. TheJvd (1343) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2016

Love tha label and the beer is not bad either. But not good enough to buy again. Alex60 (333) - - AUG 25, 2016
Bouteille 33 cl - couleur blonde avec une belle mousse blanche onctueuse qui persiste, goût épicé et fruité, vraiment agréable à boire Mathead (11) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2016
Beer pours hazy amber with a head which almost immediately disappears. Very sweet taste of liquorice, orange peel, sugar and hops. Feels quite unbalanced.
On a sidenote: very bad label design which suggested it might be a Kriek due to the red cauldron’s cherry-like appearance.
