Malty_MacHops (688) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Well rounded beer. Caramelly sweet aromas blend with touches of fruit in the nose. Brown to light brown with a foaming beige head. Sweet caramel with notes of raisins. Medium plus bodied with a sweet finish.

DijkBier (591) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2017
Bottle #11 from Beery Xmas. Drank it many times before I started rating, and before I really started tasting... First the looks: they're great: beautiful clear deep-amber pour, with a huge tan head. But then the aroma: I actually sensed none! OK, didn't drink it in my regular beer glass, but in the genuine (rather open) Kwak-glass; but I really didn't get anything at all except some faint malts. The taste is nice but very sweet: caramel, sugary, some fruitiness; no development. Moderate carbonation, full-bodied and rather alcoholic. This is a pleasing, pleasant but easy and quite sweet beer; not something special.

Beery Christmas 2017 #11. 33cl bottle at home. Appearance: clear amber with medium off-white head. Aroma: clove, caramel, some fruits. Taste: pretty high sweetness and medium bitterness. Notes of spices, clove, caramel and some apricot. Palate: medium bodied, oily texture and lively carbonation. Had it many times before, but never rated it.

defabant (32) - ITALY - DEC 6, 2017
Il primo sorso di questa birra mi ha spiazzato, sapore dolciastro quasi riconducibile allo stile bock. Continuando a bere emergono tutti i dettagli di una buona birra, dal carattere tipico belga, con un retrogusto caldo e alcolico che prepara la bocca al prossimo sorso. Aroma leggero di lievito belga.

Ottima birra belga, di qualità e dal gusto deciso e persistente. Bevuto nel tipico bicchiere crea il tipico rumore da cui deriva il nome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle in Belgian ale glass. Pours deep amber with excellent off-white head that faded quickly. Aroma of malt and a hint of cinnamon, malt driven taste: honey, nutmeg, prunes. Sticky finish with minimal bitterness

wilde_joost59 (311) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2017
Tsja, beroemd biertje, maar toch de eerste maal dat ik deze drink (denk ik nu). Mooie amber kleur, goed beige schuim en een heerlijke smaak, aardig zoetje er in. Kan ik vaker bestellen.

Aroma: biscuit, sweet, floral, belgian hops, everything rather balanced and delicate, a bit empty. Taste: sweet, a bit watery. Head is fine, a little lacing, carbonation average to this style.
