Really decent, classic Belgian beer. Full body, esters, medium carbonation, semi-sweet malts. Nice.

Tinaccio (185) - Milano, ITALY - APR 9, 2017
Tried many times, both tapped and bottled. Last time probably from tap at Bar Castei, Montecchio Maggiore (VI), Italy in his particular glass. Colour is amber, with a great foamy creamy head. Aroma is toffee, dark ripen fruit, malt, spices. Taste is toffee, caramel, malt, dark fruit and alcohol. Finish is long and malty.

a heartwarming belgian ale, rather light body, not over the top sweetness, pretty brown hue with the right head

rodsquad (182) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2017
Bottle as gift. Pours clear copper brown sheen a with foamy toffee-beige head. Aromas big with sweet candy floss then a bit of oak cask. Taste brings through the smooth toffee apple with a mild brandy warmth. Soft but light body with a tight moderate sparkle. This is one of the best looking beers Ive seen and it tastes damn good too.

toscanoigor (225) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - MAR 29, 2017
Cerveja acobreada, clara, com boa formao de espuma, boa reteno. Aroma super complexo: comea com um forte caramelado, passa por um floral leve, depois desenvolve notas de especiarias (cravo e pimenta), com toques de leveduras. O sabor faz o mesmo: comea doce e caramelado, dando lugar a um frutado leve, que logo se transforma em um amargor lupulado bem suave. Final suave, com presena marcante do lcool, leve picncia. Corpo leve, carbonatao alta. Bem complexa, saborosa e surpreendente.

Hoppy malts, hints of spices, earthy. Amber orange see through colour. Sweet malts, a tad bitter.

nephirem (440) - CROATIA - MAR 26, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Violently poured for a massive head. :) So! Clear orange/ruby pour with three finger creamy white head. Good retention, nice lacing on the glass. Floral and fruity on the nose, touch of belgian yeast, slightly herbal. Medium body, softly carbonated. Beautifully smooth on the tongue. Fruity sweet taste with subtle alcohol bitterness developing later on. Aroma is yeasty, medium malty, rich in caramel and toffee flavors. Fruity touch of bitter orange, herbal, floral. Earthy hops. Low alcohol presence, well hidden. Subtle brown sugar, slightly sticky. Regular finish. Overall, well rounded and nicely balanced. Tasty brew.

buki (226) - Otwock, POLAND - MAR 18, 2017
UPDATED: APR 16, 2017 Aromat: Słodki, słodowy, karmel, drożdze
Wygląd: w orginalnej szklance piana aż miło :), barwa miedziana, przejżysta
Smak: Słodycz, ciemne winogrona, rodzynki, daktyle. Banany i przyprawy. Bardzo przyjemny i ułożony.
Odczucie w ustach: Wyczuwalny delikatny alkohol w gardle. Goryczka wpasowana i przyjemna
Oglnie: Bardzo porządne belgijskie piwo, warto sprbować w szczeglności ze specyficznej szklanki :D

Clear amber with a white head. Spicy, pepper, yeast in aroma. Flavor is complex, spicy, belgian yeast, some nuts. Carbonation is high. Good and very drinkable.
