4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. Pours a brown wood, clear with eggshell small head. Nose : cherry, plums, caramelized malts. Smoked and whisky notes. Sip : Oily with a small carbonation. Little sweet followed by coffee bitterness which I find amusing since it’s a pale beer. Caramel and dried fruits are still present. Honestly it’s a surprising beer. From taste I would say it’s more of a typical brown brown.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2012
33 cl bottle @ some restaurant in Brussels. Rated on 13.4.2009
Aroma has sweetish malt with caramel. Flavour has caramel with hints of salt. I was hoping a good pale ale to get a pause from all of those Belgian ales – but this appeared to be rather far from a pale ale. And had even some elements from a Belgian Ale...

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bright ruby-red color, with a fine, flat white head. Aroma is very hoppy spicy, slightly bitter with a sweet touch. The finish is changing very quickly in an extremely bitter taste. Unfortunately, the bitter tone to the middle part is a little pushy. Finish is overhopped, very bitter.
