appearance is mostly unclouded ruby, quite striking. head reduces to and remains a film quickly. aroma is lightly crunchy toffee brittle. mouthfeel is totally unexpected, very soft and pillowy. more caramel in taste along with nutty notes not unlike a dopplebock.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1010) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 13, 2013
dark orange-amber, hazy. Tan head 1cm thick, fine, moderate-slow decay. Aroma contains blueberry malted milkshake, hint of chocolate, hazelnut. Light-medium body. Flavor: Touch of nutty toffee candy. Touch of tart pickle. Herbal hops and light chlorine. Light dry breadcrust. Not super sweet. Good, surprising tart flavor not apparent in the aroma.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2007
Pours a light amber-brown with a moderate head with poor retention. Amazingly spicy aroma - very much like a Belgian strong. Full-bodied carmelized malt flavour, notes of alcohol. Warm finish, creamy with decent carb. This was surprising, and much better than any other French beer I’ve tasted.

hohops (998) - Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2014
Pours a dark amber, almost brown colour, with a fluffy head. A rich aroma of spice, dark fruit, coffee. Satisfying taste, lots of malts with a bit of bitterness, but nicely balanced. Pretty good overall.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Not as much nuttiness and maltiness as I would have liked. However, there are distinct wood and honey notes mixed in with a gentle hint of white wine. The yeast was a little too much in eveidence and interfered slightly with the malt accents. Still, decent.

Ambra carico, schiuma quasi inesistente, gran quantità di lievito sospeso. Aroma molto dimesso, al palato dolce del caramello, si sente bene l’alcol. Non mi ha emozionato troppo.

3.6
Maxbier (986) - Maryland, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Dark ruby copper color with small off-white head. Aroma is caramel malt, dark berries, booze, and a hint of hay. Malty flavor, hint of funk, fermented fruits, yeasty spicyness. Slightly bitter lingering finish.

2.7
budedou (978) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - JUN 26, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 Clear amber body, white head. Aroma of caramel and some molasses. Some unpleasant floury feeling. Alcohol is veery present. Overall might be nice beer, but I just dislike the strong amber ones.

BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2007
I really enjoyed this beer. It is decisively sour, with a kriek-like quality I found very endearing. While I would not call this a sessionable beer, I would highly recommend it. It poured a hazy amber with 5mm of head. It exhibited a cherry fruity-sourness in its bouquet. It didn’t have a dry-sourness (like a Berliner Weisse would), rather it had this sweet-sour dichotomy going on that certain fruits provide that makes you pucker. Tart would be the best word I suppose. Not very drinkable/sessionable, but I still enjoyed it.
