JorisPPattyn (10060) - BELGIUM - APR 9, 2004
UPDATED: APR 3, 2006 (draught) Clear amber; yellowish brown head, lacey. Grassy nose, crystal malt, toast, peppery. Spicey taste - I would have said pepper, ginger, maybe some aniseed, but I’m told it’s cardemoms. Very well blended-in. Slight sourishness, main sweet taste, spicey finish. Medium-bodied, little alcoholburn, reasonably refreshing for such a brew. Nice beer made on demand for a Danish importer. This one is REALLY from Friart, not Du Bocq.

Retasted draught 2/04/06: spiciness even more accentuated, to the point of becoming harsh-metallic. Like treated with a spice-syrup. Would loose at least another mark.
Draught, Delirium Cafe, May 2005.
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is hazy medium orange-brown.
Aroma is moderately malty (caramel), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of banana, orange peel, and date.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium to full body, velvety/creamy texture, soft carbonation.
Not tremendously moving, but pleasant. rlgk (18851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2006

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2006 (33 cl. bottle) Sweet aroma of ripe fruits and malt. Light brown colour with matching colour head. Huge stable head and lots of carbonation. Fresh, bitter-sweet flavour with some roasted notes. Very creamy mouth feel. The carbonation prickles the palate for some time. Nice but not exciting. Easter would still be Easter without it. sunevdj (4123) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2007 Pours a hazy amber with a nice off-white head. Sweet and very fruity aromas of yeast, apples and pears. Also a hint of honey. Full bodied. Long mellow dry finish, also with a hint of honey. chriso (7586) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2008
Draught at Plan B, May 2006. Reddish colour Served rather cold to pick up much aroma. Lots of berry fruit in the flavour. Smooth and quite soft, with a surprisingly light body. Decent enough.
