3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fresh malts caramel salty fruity aroma. Amber brown minimal head. Medium body, sweet amber, starts carbonated then gets kinda molassesy like a heller bock, but without any booziness. Finish is light but nice. I imagine this would be a nice table beer with dinner.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Raed 28 12 2008
Bottle green, 750 ml,
Appearance pours caramel nutbrown, dark burned orange, hazy body, honey like hue, there are yeasty fragments floating in the body texture, head is initially medium slowly decreasing to small and than to a minimal froth, rather no lacing, head was foamy and yellowish brown in colour, body looks as medium, there is a very nice natural saturation visible in the body,
Aromat front is caramelly sweet with slightly hidden notes of spices becoming present when the beer gets warmer, nice note of whipped cream, burned sugar and milk chockolate, sweet orange, very juicy and refreshing, but somehow on the other hand spicy, seems light in appearance but has a really, full character in the aroma, very Belgian Ale like aroma, slightly similar to Abbey Beer, very considerable note of leavy spicy and earthy hops spiced up by alcohol, prune, raisin, vanilla, grains, wheat,
Flavour front is quite soft in terms of the body but denotes high hoppyness, spicyness, leaves, herbal notes, rather soft in terms of aftertaste and mild on palate, alcohol is pefectly hidden and slightly warms up the flavour, woody touches, slightly toasted malt, very crispy and clean in flavour, finish duration is short to medium,
Palate body is medium but seems quite light, alcohol is perfectly hidden, texture is wattery, carbonation on palate is quite high but natural, finish feel is kind of dusty, gently alcoholic and generally neutral, what could be a kinf of disadvantage, if not the pleasant spicyness and kind of bitterness at the end

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2007 Poured to a flat reddish-orange with very little head and virutally no lacing or effervescence. Appearance was more of a cherry-apple cider than a beer, and the aroma was a pleasant mix of spices and fruit (mostly apples and grapes).
This beer was interesting in that the mouthfeel, flavor and finish were all what I would imagine the result to be if you mixed a Lambic and a Flemish Sour together. At various sips and times, I detected fruity, sweet, sour, spicy and a hint of the 8% alcohol. Different, but not bad at all.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big short lived head & chestnut colour. Some apple-like aroma. Very malty flavour with just enough alcohol warmth. Caramelly sweetness develops as it warms, which I actually liked. Quite complex and worthy of rating #300.
