Glowing bronze/copper color---medium cream head and honeycomb lace...a few floaters, but still pretty...Aroma attractively cidery, yeasty---nice...This has plenty of apple-like snap; effervescent, fairly acidic mouthfeel is rather cidery, adds to refreshment...Finish is tart and medium-dry...This is not very complex as Belgians go, but is certainly flavorful and refreshing...A nice change of pace...and it certainly feels light for a potent elixer...

A reddish beer with a nice caramel nose. The flavour is initially caramel and complex malt, but a slight sour twang enters and it finishes slightly dry and fresh. The palate is the most fantastic thing about this beer. Light and fresh while to counter the caramel. Nice!

3 da noite... A maior curtio o copo diferenciado e a galera olhando desconfiada! Fora isso, a cerva boa tambm! A colorao mbar e turva, com efervescncia contnua, que d um efeito bem interessante e com o copo, nico. O creme acastanhado e denso, bela formao. Aroma bastante suave. O gosto bastante complexo. Percebi noz moscada, mel de flores diversas, bem suave, sem acidez. Retrogosto herbal. Cereja. At o garom ficou com o olho comprido! hehehehehehe!

Kraft Caramels that is what this beer reminds me of, but what a great gimmick glass. Page 356 of Michael Jacksons Great Beer Guide and only 296 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - MAY 9, 2002
Roasted barley, bubblegum, and grape juice aroma wafting above the clear golden body. Fruity and acceptably yeasty exhibiting apple-core, fruit-basket flavors butressed by a deeper, complex character of dates and cooked fruit. A tad unbalanced/unfinished, this would benefit from an additional shot of malt. Yummy nonetheless.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2003 This beer was a surprise. The aroma is a bit heavy, but the taste is lovely and very nice aftertaste that lasts for a long time. I will buy it again when i have the change. This beer is dangerously drinkable. I want more, I want more.

Nice warming ale. A bit too sweet for me. Flavor is sweet malts caramel and marzipan with some spicy hints. The alcohol is clearly present but thats fine in this one.

Bottle. Pours a brownish amber color with a nice fluffy tan head. Aromas of bread and fig. Has characteristic Belgian flavor, reminds me of a Trappist beer. Medium bodied. Roasted edge on the finish. Tasty beer.

I’ve seen this been served in Belgium into the almost chemistry class like test tube rack with mini yard glass - very unique. Good orange color and a bready taste. Superb beer.
