UPDATED: APR 18, 2008 In short: A light plumy Abbey Dubbel. Good foundation but body too light for the styleMarkoR (959) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2006
How: Bottle 330ml, many times, usually fresh. Consistent taste across different batches/years
The look: Cloudy light mahogany with a large rocky beige head.
In long: Aroma of roasted malt and some molasses. Taste is malty, plums, molasses/liquorice. Light-medium body. Medium body with light bitterness. A cross between a Belgian Ale and a Bock? It’s a good beer but it tastes a bit like a light Floreffe Prima Melior (somewhat similar but a lot tamer). And with the Prima Melior in the same family this one becomes as forgettable as Jermaine Jackson from Jackson family.
Very enjoyable beer. Pours dark brown colour with a generous head. Some spices. Had it at the Bier Market, in Toronto. unibrouefan (200) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2006
SAQ Mtée Paiement. Nice brown vinny aroma, dark brown color with a head comparing to cappucino head. This beer taste a little bit like the X.O. Cognac beer...strong taste with a smooth finale in mouth...I’m perplex about this beer, acid sour taste but creamy palate. DerWeg (1678) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2009 Really good, some cherry and cola notes with balanced malts and funky yeast fruits. Pleasing mouthfeel and subtle, comforting aroma. ** more notes 2009 ** Cola, woody spices cherry and apple, tart and sweet. Well at least Im fairly consistent.

Brownish colour with a medium mostly lasting light brown head. Aroma and taste of malts, frujits, herbs and citrus. Nice palate. Quevillon (3061) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2006
5/8 bière de l’embalage cadeau Lefebyre. Arome très légère, épicé. Rouge très foncé avec un beau collet. Goût; un peu épicé, fruité mais très légé et sec. Arrière goût très plaisant. rsans (125) - Pont-Rouge, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2006
33 cl bottle. Dark brown colour with a nice head made up of large bubbles.
Aroma of fruits, spices, prunes or plums, and cherries notes.
Nice complex flavours of spice, raisin, and some red wine character.
Much better as it warms up. Heavy sediment at the bottom.
Very enjoyable beer.

Dark brown with a large bubbly beige head. The aroma was strong and malty with orange marmalade and dark fruits. The taste was on the thin side. Sweetness, a bit of tartness, but none of the impact promised by the aroma. mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2006
bottle. pours a deep burgundy with a medium off-white head receding into a small ring shortly after. the aroma is malt-accented with plum notes, raisin, sugar, and cherries. there is also a somewhat lactic quality to it also. flavour is pleasantly fruity - plum, sugary raisins, and caramel. mildly tart towards the end. very good as it warms up.
