COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An amber, craft beer with generous amounts of hops and alcohol. This copper-gold beer is a real heavyweight and a must for beer lovers. The liberal quantities of malt and bitter hops create a complex, full flavour. It starts as slightly sweet with malty aromas of chocolate, fruit and grain, while the bitter hops stand out nicely in the aftertaste. A feast for the connoisseur!

Rune (13770) - Tromsø, - SEP 23, 2012
Thanks to OleR for sharing a 330ml bottle at Håndverkerstuene. Lasting, lacing-layer covering a cloudy golden body. Dried fruity and mid-sweet malts to the nose. Rounded flavour of dried fruits alongside yeasty fruits and spices upheld by citrus bitterness towards the ending. Alcohol warmth. Satisfying (Oslo, 15.09.2012).

Sarkynorthener 5K and faggots night. Bottle shared with RTV. Muggy Amber beer with small head. Aroma of malts, wine, citrus and boozy. Taste is rich malts, booze, some spice and yeast. Medium bodied. Very good.

RichTheVillan (8457) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2018
Bottle during Sarkynorthener 5k and Faggot night cheers Martin; hazy amber pour with a bubbly off white head, aroma has slight yeast and red fruits, taste has hints of peach, some yeast, ok.

TtV (474) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2017
Brown, ruby with a fluffy off white head that fades. Aroma of grain, dry hops. The taste is mildly sweet and develops into a faint IPA like affair. There is malts in the aftertaste.

I found this bottle at Amstein, in St-Légier, best before 02/2018. I had a pleasant experience with this beer, a typical Belgian Ale, powerful beer, not a thousand one to become drunk. The color is a magical red/copper color, average carbonation for the style, thin and white foam. We notice directly the alcool but it is find, sugar, malt, side of orange peel, ginger bread, malty, cynamon, hop. We are not so far of a barley wine, Belgian yeast. The sensation in the mouth is pleasant, a kind of beer good to sleep

Yummy complex amber beer. Would't really call it a belgian ale though. Little too bitter

dynamiteninja (1932) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2017
Bottle. Medium off white head. Amber body. Wheat, fruit, hop background, spice. Tangy and alkaline with some lactic acid.

ruuurd (345) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2017 Spicy and complex according to ‘t Ij. Well that’s for sure, and it is a very tasteful one with a nice amber pour

3.2
Hopverdju (1645) - BELGIUM - OCT 24, 2017
Leuke woordspeling! Amberkleurig bier met witte schuimkraag. Geur: granen, licht zoet, karamel. Smaak: bitter en licht zoet, kruiden, alcoholisch. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: bitter, kruiden, alcoholisch. Niet slecht maar met een kruidige hopsoort die niet aan mij besteed is.
