Sample on tap @ In De Wildeman (thanks Simon!) . Cloudy orange color. Off white head. Aroma’s: sweets, sweet malts, vanilla, oak, some fruit as well. Flavor is medium sweet, alcoholic, notes of wood. Alcohol feel is fairly strong, body is medium. Still enough carbonation. Long finish with a light bitterness. Seems better now than it was when this was just released, but that might just be my memory. AdamChandler (5176) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 2, 2013

Cloudy amber beer. Big tan head that tastes of oaky butter cream - yum! Semi soft dry palate. Vanilla oak and banana. Peppery spice. Trace of bubblegum and aniseed alcohol. Dry finish. If not for the spice this could pass for a dessert beer. Tasty Dutch treat!
[375ml bottle, courtesy of cgarvieuk] Deep amber, tiny lacing. Sweet, oaky booze on the aroma. Quite delicate, sweet, honeyish flavours. Fruity syrup. Honeysuckle and barley sugar  Blairgus (4615) - California, USA - JUL 10, 2012

In bottle. Pours a dark golden amber colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of raisins, honey, yeast, toffee, alcohol and oak. Similar flavours of raisins and sweet honey with alcohol fairly present. A little sweet overall with moderate carbonation and light CO2 prickle with a foamy mouth-feel. cgarvieuk (25984) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2012
