UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Sweet, but delicious. I really loved the way that it had just the slightest nose of alcohol. That along with some apples and maybe a little banana. Tastes like it smells. I’d drink it more often if I could.

simontomlinson (365) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2016
Off white frothy head stayed quite well on a murky amber coloured body with plenty of carbonation. Sweet caramel aroma with brown sugar & malts. Thick sticky body, cloying on the back. Quite sweet tasting on the front with malt, brown, sugar, honey & toffee but this gradually changes over the palate into a slightly sour back with plum, raisin, apricot & grape.

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2008
Bottle 33cl. It pours a beautiful red/brown clear colour, with a good size head, drink this in the proper glass and it looks even better. Aroma is of malts, raisins and apple, very complex, but can be defined pretty well if you just take your time. Taste is also very good and complex, could detect raisins, spices and a slight trace of grapefruit. Overall a very enjoyable beer.

Dry cheesy yeast with some slight sweet notes and a taste with a kind of flatness throughout. Medium head with bubbly consistancy.

GreatStelle (363) - Chico, California, USA - AUG 21, 2003
Nice amber color. Very yeasty and sweet. Lacked good flavor components. I found this beer to be bland.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JUL 21, 2003
Dark golden color.Medium head that sticks around.Nice caramel flavor as well as a caramel malty aroma. Not as strong as most Belgians. A smooth drink that finishes as well as it starts.

Bottle. Pours amber with large white head into Kwak glass. Aroma is fruity / malty. Tastes of caramel / toffee. Alcohol is well hidden. One of my favourite beers.
