2.9
JorisPPattyn (10026) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2008
Draught. Served ice cold in a frosted glass... Red-brown with small yellowish rim. Malts, and very little else, seen the temperature. Roasted malts, some bitterness with slight retronasal sweetness, which continues growing warming up, pastry flavours. Medium bodied at best. Horrible presentation for a beer that isn’t all that great to start with...

3.2
arminjewell (9688) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear reddish pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, some grassy and herbal hops into a bit of spice, yeast, slight orange as well. Taste is a mix of orange, marmalade into a bit of red fruit, some slight grass, herbal, spicy hops into a big caramel note, finishing slightly bitter.
