Amber color beer topped with nice with foam coating.
The fine bubbles are supporting the foam in a nice way.
The beer has probably filtered because it very clear.
Rose flowers and fresh baked bread, sweet herbs and citrus
Spicy start rather sweet warm moth feeling because of the alcohol,
nice bitter that once the beer has been swallowed is long and nice.
Koenigs Hoeven Abt bottle pours a glowing dark caramel brown with a 2 finger beige head that has great retention and leaves lacing. Aroma is belgian yeast, citrus, weak dark fruits, green apples, and a little caramel. Flavor is huge on alcohol, sweet apple, straw, grassy hops, earth, dry leaves, dark caramel, butterscotch, fruity esters, vanilla bean, sweet grainy malt. Finish is caramel covered toasted grain and freuit with a hint of grass and low bitterness. Palate is sweet and thick at first, leading to a more thin and dry experience. Does not hide alcohol content that well for the style. ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 28, 2009

It feels a little bit like a chemical stuff ! Sorry...
Pours a dark, translucent, deep copper, slightly reddish, like dark honey. Aroma is fruity, most like cherries, a little sweet with a hint of alcohol. Flavor is fruity and malty, like cherry, crisp with a strong alcohol nip and a sweet hint. Texture is tingly and edgy - a lively drink. Straling (363) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2009
