Red beer which poured with off white head.Light spicy aromas with malt in there too.In the taste;malt and subtle spices.Toffee,plum and brown sugar are there in the background.This bottle was quite fresh and i need to try an older version as i think the beer would benefit with more time to mature further,even so an enjoyable beer. tderoeck (9656) - Gent, BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2012

Clear copper red beer, lots of chunks floating around under a big aery off-white head, stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: clearly infected, rotten leafs, sour, rotten fruits. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sour, rotten fruits, bit smoky (?), sugary, dry and dusty. Aftertaste: dusty, some smoke again?, rotten fruits, sourish. Really bad stuff.
Amber with white head. Aroma of yeast and fruit. Flavour with caramel, nuts and spices. kermis (13297) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2012
Draft at Brussels Beer Festival. Pours cloudy brown with a small off white head. Aroma of dark fruit, light malt, caramel and light hops. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. thebusstop (178) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2012
The bouquet was full of apricot, fig and molasses. The flavor mirrored that, full of middle eastern spices, honey and pistachio. The palate a little chewy up front and then watery in the finish. I thought this was really awesome! Noctilucus (107) - All over Belgium, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2012
Gusher! Amber/orange, almost copper colour with long lasting medium-thick foam.
Not such a strong smell but it’s quite typical for this kind of amber ales; some lemon and light spices, a bit of malt too. Unfortunately that lemon touch always reminds me of detergent...
Medium carbonation, just the right amount; pretty full taste as of the first sip, with accordingly full mouthfeel. The taste is quite similar to the smell: malt, something coriander-like, reasonably bitter but not too much as there’s some tempering caramel subtly underneath. The attack borders on sourness, the aftertaste is at the same time more mellow/balanced and more bitter. Both taste and aftertaste are quite strong, especially for a 7% beer, the spices probably help in that aspect.
Once it warms a little, the alcohol takes a more prominent place.
Not my favourity type of beer and little that makes it stand out from the crowd, but in its style it’s a good and solid example.
I prefer it when it’s less cool, giving it a fuller, less sharp taste. Rasmus40 (20639) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 11, 2012
