UPDATED: SEP 24, 2017 Une de mes bières préférées. Elle a du corps, du caractère, un bel équilibre. Le verre est lui aussi très original et adapté au breuvage.

Pours a clear brown with a small white head and thick lacing.

Aroma is woody malts, dark caramel, citrus, with coriander, clove and ripe banana from that Belgian yeast. Taste is pretty sweet with some bitterness at the end with a long, slightly soapy finish and good body.

Nice example of a strong malty Belgian beer, even if I prefer some of its peers.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2017 (de cœur (je surnote), to drink it in its verre à cocher au Rabelais/Graslin, fruitée-sucrée, assez équilibrée, cannelle-racinesque)

I am writing this a few days after I had it. I enjoyed it and thought it was a very good beer. But he could not stand up to my preferred Belgians ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rhombic (154) - Elx, SPAIN - SEP 19, 2017
Draught. Hazy brown, pale tan head. Fruity, apple, a bit of sickly sweet caramel in aroma. The flavour profile is heavy sweet, very slick and syrupy, too sweet for my taste. Oily and short finish. Not too great for what it's meant to be.

Очень строгий и крепкий бельгийский Эль. Как всегда- сухофрукты, ягоды и немного цитрусов. К сожалению не смог выпить его из фирменной кружки. Квак квак

Fles en natuurlijk in het juiste koetsiersglas met houten houder. Volle smaak; Kwak is altijd een genot; flink schuim, tikje zoet, maar vooral goddelijk.

The presentation is a must but the flavor doesn't follow it. Too strong flavor for my taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
