Turbid, quite offputting, brief head. Quite sweet grainy and roasty aroma. Lovely full palate, thick, sweet, fruity, and malty. Very pleasant, well balanced. Would like to try it slightly further away from the dregs at the bottom of the keg.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (6:4:6:4:12=3.2)
Sweet malty body, a bit sticky and smooth. Yeasty sticky malts. Messy for a belgian. Some floral aspects, but they can’t save it.
Very dense, creamy head over red-foxy beer, well-carbonated. Sweetish, roasted malts nose, with flowery/fruity notes, as from rosehips. Slightly oxydized, bit roasted, sweet-sourish, and again flowery; spiced with obvious coriander. Light body, lightly spritzy. It would even be refreshing with just a tad less restsugars. Well - yes. God knows where it was brewed - this one in Ecaussinnes, but since then? yespr (45398) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2010
