COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra bruna, presenta un profumo intenso di frutta candita e caramellata accompagnato da una delicata nota speziata di sottofondo. Al gusto sprigiona una morbida dolcezza che ricorda la frutta secca (fichi e datteri) ed un lieve sentore agrumato. Sovrana della tavola, accompagna al meglio le pietanze pi ricche, formaggi stagionati, dessert ed il relax del dopocena.

Silvan7 (1175) - Samarate, - SEP 23, 2013
On tap @ Cheese 2013 BRA. profuma in maniera decisa di caramello e di una speziato che ricorda sia la cannella che lo zenzero. Color ambra carico, quasi marrone, schiuma beige/nocciola. Il gusto sia caramellato /zuccherino, che luppolato/ agrumato. bellequilibrio. Non ricorda pedissequamente le belghe ma chiaro che a quelle che si ispira.

carts (11) - New York, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Pours a rich amber and nice solid head, Nose gives a hint as to what to expect with candy and malt coming through. Big rich beer but for me too much residual sugar on the pallet, extremely sweet.

Ippopodio (135) - ITALY - NOV 18, 2015
Birra ambrata carica con una schiuma compatta color cappuccino, poco persistente. Al naso il dolce di zucchero filato e frutti passiti: prugna, uvetta, ciliegie. In bocca è morbida e abbondante con richiami di frutta sotto spirito e tanto caramello. I luppoli sono messi in subordine rispetto ai malti ed ai lieviti, l'amaro semplicemente non c'è. Il finale è coerente con la dolcezza percepita ed il calore alcolico la rende ancora più morbida.

Countbeer (6286) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle: Taster: Hazy orange brown body with a small creamy head. The perfect copy (and sipper) of a Belgian style beer. Fruity, sweet, yeasty, typical Belgian style beer. Very smooth! Sweet fruity bitter flavours. Bitter warm afterglow. Low carbo, close to silky mouthfeel, a bit more than just medium bodied. What a surprise, very nice!

ruigo (2498) - PORTUGAL - OCT 21, 2013
15cl. at Brassigaume 2013. Pours a dark amber colour with a little and thin head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity and light caramel. Medium and lively carbonation with a creamy body. Flavour is bitter with a dry end. Overall, a nice beer that I would like to try in another environment.

sebletitje (9556) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 21, 2013
Draft @ Brassigaume 13. Cuivre sur un trouble lger, col beige. Arme est malt, lger biscuit, caramel le tout relev par un houblonn fruit et fleuri le tout offrant un bouquet subtile dagrumes - citronn. Ce dernier conserve cette influence typiquement belge. Palais est houblonn au premier abord, ensuite, le caractre malt vient relever le tout. Alternance belge entre un fruit noir, caramel, sucre brun avec un petit ct speculoos. Fini garde des pointes houblonnes herbaces pour une amertume plaisante. Les houblons restent de caractre noble.
