Bouteille de 330 ml achetée à la LCBO Rideau à Ottawa. Dégustée le 16 novembre 2008 (Tulip). Bière rouge orangée voilée. Mousse beaucoup, col épais, grossier et durable. Assez effervescente, bulles fines à moyennes. Odeur de miel bien présente, de levure et d’alcool. Goût de miel, de céréales et de levure. Très bonne mais inférieure aux meilleures belges, moins raffinée. rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - APR 15, 2014
330ml bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a nearly clear medium red with a solid one finger white head. Really good head retention but lacing really isn’t anything to speak of.
Aroma really has a lot going on. Tangerine mixed with what is almost a cola or chocolate note. A bit of spicy Belgian yeast is thrown in there too.
The taste is less impressive. Sweet right off the bat and a very strong tootsie roll/cherry coke flavor that is just odd. I really think it might be oxidation. Light orange/tangerine is in the background but it is buried under the chocolate. Extremely sweet throughout that borders on cloying with a sticky finish.
Overall, this beer is a mess. I’m not sure of the age but oxidation seems to have hit it. Some weird flavors going on and just way too sweet.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Light amber, very hazy. Orange peel, marzipan, lightly tart finish. Much preferred over the blonde, but still only ok. JoshuaStranger (192) - - FEB 9, 2014

Bottled 330ml. -from www.beershop.hr. Slight cloudy orange/golden coloured, medium sized off-white head, fruity orange (jaffa cakes) nose.

rossa con una bella schiuma bianca,persistente..opaca ma non eccessivamente torbida..rilascia un ottimo aroma fruttato e lievitoso,in classico stile belga e il gusto risulta anche piacevole,forse un pò troppo dolce ma bevibile (almeno la prima)..retrogusto un pizzico amaro,ma siamo sempre in terra belga! stevensks (8) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 16, 2013 does not count
Deep gold colour, thick white head. Aroma very sweet, with caramel and chocolate, you can feel an alcohol. Flavor resonates with aroma, also sweet, like a piece of chocolate with some liqueur. Tasty, balanced beer, very specific one. If you taste this beer, you would like to eat some candy :)
