Had some at the Great American Beer Festival. Very rich Belgian ale. Pours a red-amber with a thick white head. Nose of sweet fruits and mild malts. Taste is sweet with strong caramel character. Body is full and the alcohol is warming. Solid.

Koelschtrinker (18349) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Schne Bernsteinfarbe! Ein malziger Genosse, bei dem man den Alkoholgehalt sptestens zum Ende hin deutlich schmeckt. Eigentlich lsst sich das Bier schn trinken und schmeckt zu jeder Zeit recht gut, auch wenn sich im Mittelteil eine leicht Wssrigkeit zeigt. Test vom 25.5.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 13,10,8,8,10,9 - 9,30

Bottle at tBrugs Beertje, Brugge - 01/12/12. Mid chestnut brown with a good off white head. Nose carries Belgian yeast esters, light hops, malts. Taste follows, a little brown sugar, sweet caramel, malt. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate, bitter sweet finish. Ok stuff, fairly basic beer but looks and feels good. Tthe first time Ive drunk this since one of my first Belgian visits circa 01/02. Novelty glass tastic !

harrisoni (17572) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2006 Bottle . Dark orange thin white lasting head. Caramel and orange peel run through this beer. Lovely caramel with citrus/orange nose. Caramel in mouth with orange peel/hop dry finish. Good balance, nice beer with toffee but not over the top with the candy sugar. On draught at The Rake. Bit sickly with strong malt. But drinkable and odd seeing it on draught 3.5/5
