Direkt beim Antrunk überrascht mich die Milde, bei 10,5% erwartet man doch ein deutlich kräftigeres Bier. Wie gesagt recht milder Antrunk, holzig, sehr leicht malzig. Im Mittelteil wird das Bier kaum kräftiger, einzig das Malz legt zu. Diese Note weist einen etwas untypischen Hintergrundton auf, welcher wohl vom Genever kommt.etwas rauchig, weuter holzig, trocken malzig. Im Abgang leicht nach Aschenbecher. Hab schon Besseres getrunken.

On tap at Delirium Café, shared with Finn. One big patch at the middle of the surface. Fragile lacing. Cloudy, dark-orange body. Fruit hoppy smell, slightly sour. Malt-fruity taste, candy sweet, herbal dryness and yeasty alcohol. Rather special kind of smell and taste that carries some interests (Brussel, 06.05.2011). shrubber85 (11582) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 24, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2011 Bottle at First German Ratebeer gathering at Idar Oberstein courtesy of Bierkrug. Sweet toffee malt, cherry, and light alcohol aroma. Medium brown with giant head. Sweet toffee malt and moderately astringent alcohol flavor. Nice body. Tasty - alcohol fairly well hidden. Travlr (25876) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle at the first German local RateBeer tasting at Wasaba in Idar-Oberstein. Courtesy of shrubber85 - thanks! A Belgian beer labeled and sold in Germany? Is this one a Radler?? Probably not with that alcohol percentage. It has a bittersweet taste like a barleywine with a touch more hops. Bierkrug (2129) - - APR 12, 2011
330 ml bottle in Germany. Dark amber color with a huge white foamy head. Powerful malty aroma in which alcohol is noticeable. The taste is sweet before anything, very fruity, subtle tartness, with a sweet like end. I found it robust for sure, but well balanced and not as agressive as others of the type can be. Overall very tasty with a lot of character. My rating may be different with the German version direct from the Abtei in Germany imdownthepub (15160) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2010
Bottle conditioned, 330ml at Cafe Bruxelles, Leicester. Amber to brown with white head. This is very whisky like in character, it shows right from the start, there is bitterness within the malts and an oaky woodiness. Much better than it sounds, pretty decent.
