Even toned rusty brown, with a bit of white head. Aroma is rich and tart, and taste is a tiny bit of a letdown after the aroma, but it's very drinkable. Dan ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice dark orangish amber color. Aromas of fruit, and some other hints, maybe some spices, maybe caramel. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and a hint of hops with a nice bittersweet finish.

Desverger (9936) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 12, 2016
[email protected] Bar, Copenhagen - dark sienna red to brown pour with off white head. Expecting a sweet rather than the sour malty backing (being a Belgian ale) but works for me, some dried fruit, caramel, some spices going, cinnamon prominently, quite tart in the finish, interesting brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Taste is tart, vinegary (what?), funky, red berries, malty, dark fruits, spicy, chocolate. Not sure whats going on here. Not bad though.

wombat23 (1087) - Texas, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Shared 25.4 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy amber/brown with an off-white head. Aroma is fruit, earth, spice, and yeast. Taste is sour fruits, orange, spice, funk, earth, and yeast. Its not really a brown ale, nor is it a Belgian strong ale. Id say its almost more like a watered-down sour red/brown, but with some citrus, and not nearly as tart - though it does indeed have some tartness. Interesting - not one of my favorites - but decent.
