16 oz. ceramic bottle. Aromas of sweet dark fruits and caramel malt. Near opaque color, but brilliant ruby red using halogen. Beige head that frothed and laced. Medium bodied. Mild carbonation. Sweet berry and raisin flavors. As the sweetness leaves, a mild bitter arises. The finish begins sweet, but as the sugars rinse away, a mild bitter stays. Dark fruits come and go. Very drinkable brew. Borup (15943) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2015

Thanks to bu11zeye for the 16oz bottle of this Belgian. Pours a murky dark brown with a burgundy tint. Thick beige head and nice lacing. The aroma is malty and nutty, but has some characteristics of a Flemish Sour too. Medium-bodied and smooth with flavors of burnt malt, raisin, sour fruit and yeast. The finish is on the thin side and is rather fruity. All in all this is a decent Belgian. At times it is well balanced and at others it is not, but more often than not it is pretty good. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 12, 2004

Bottle sourced from Toft Vin, Copenhagen, shared with the Mrs - pours dark brown with a fizzy big beige head. Sweet malty with lots of caramel and toffee notes, some dried fruit, slight yeasty character, light spices, is rather highly carbonated and has a rather harsh jarring metallic aftertaste, and looking at previous page of reviews seems like I am not the only one to experience this.
