Tastingsession LCRBM08.JorisPPattyn (10026) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2008
Orange colored brew. Sweet, malty aroma, some fruits. Sweet flavor, burned malts, bread, bitterness.
No head left over very red-brandy coloured beer. Cognac, sweet malts, some faraway bread & leaves. Sweetish, leafy, lots of malts, all very classical, but then I get worts... Very sticky MF, very slick. Seems not finished, not fully fermented-out? German brewers are supposed to know about lagering, aren’t they? jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2008

Bottled. A hazy deep red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of fruit - especially peaches, as well as notes of alcohol and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and alcohol as well as light notes of metal, leading to a dry metallic finish.
