This corked and caged bottle poured a very large head of mostly lasting light brown colored foamy bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body was very hazy so as to be semi-opaque and dark brown colored with no hope of seeing any carbonation. The aroma is very nice and full of caramel and brown malts with a mild vinuous note. The mouth feel is semi-dry tingly and smooth with a lingering brown beer finish. The flavor contains notes of brown malts caramel clove and other mild spices.

(Bottle 75 cl) Dark brown - almost like a Dubbel, almost. Unclear with a gigantic, rocky head. Very delicate, almost perfumy aromas. Lots of fruity esters - citrus - and perhaps some caramel. Surprising light body - almost watery - but still manages to appear perfectly balanced. A very quaffable easy-to-drink beer. 100498 NJBeerman013 (1054) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2009
750 ml bottle. Pours a rich brown with a ruby hue. Aroma is nutty, hoppy, somewhat fruity. Body is full and rich. Flavors range from light fall fruits, to somewhat of a dry wheat yeastiness, a slight citrus bite, and a sweet malty finish. Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 3, 2001

bottle. pours a very hazy honey golden orange with a rocky white headthat diminishes in size but does last, laces well. Great color! initial very big lemon, vinegar, buckwheat? champagne, yeasty (champagne yeast?) reminds me a little of Chimay bleu. very nice palate...lots of sediment though (not a bad thing, just dont drink it). Very unique...drunk best at cool-to warm as the flavors shift at diff. temperatures. Good! Suttree (6505) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2005
Dark gold, big firm white head. Nicely sour, tart lambic-y aroma. It has a dusty flavor, in a good way. also musty, rustic flavors, too. Hints of white wine, as well. Tart, like Spree candy . Very subtle notes of honey as it warms. AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - OCT 7, 2005
Bottle. Light orange pour, fine textured and robust head. Strongly yeasty and malty, taste of bread/barley, herbs, mild spice; light citric notes consisting mostly of orange/grapefruit, some hints of grape. Caramel; lightly complex; pretty nice.

Sweet, fruity, apply aroma. Rich grassy taste, great unfiltered mouthfeel. A truly and uniquely enjoyable beer. beastiefan2k (4111) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - DEC 25, 2008
End of the year rate-a-thon. 750mL cork and wire poured into a large Duvel tulip. Cork pops with authority and pours with a humongous khaki colored head. It fades slowly and leaves a heck of a sticky lacing on the glass. Never fully fades and stays a cm or 2 thick, completely covering the surface. The body is a brown color with reddish tints. Aroma is a very airy Belgian yeastiness. Behind that is a liquid black bread aroma, which is earthy and slightly sweet. A dark cereal grain aspect makes up the flavor. Flavor dissipates quickly yet the carbonation is not as strong as expected. Easy drinking with a cereal, lightly sweet aftertaste. A cool beer, I guess the buckwheat comes through through the cereal aspect.
