Color is amber/bronze and a bit cloudy. Huge white head with an amber accent. Smells like a sour beer, only a bit sweeter. A combination of different tastes, such as caramel, candied fruit and spices, gives for an incredible beer. Delicious.

Dark orange/amber, finger and half of nice creamy off-white head that slowly and "artistically" recedes.
Sweet juicy orchard fruit on the nose (apricot, peach, overripe apple, quince), sprinkled with candi sugar and some alcohol, caramel, some spicy yeasts and hop.
Wow, straight boozy cherry plum and persimmon, with a rich jammy stone fruit stickiness. Splash of honey, caramel later on, some orange peel. Getting close to a dark fruit character too, but mostly white raisin, light fig. Herbs, pepper, bit of clove and faint licorice. Finishes dry, a nice leafy hop edge that's quite bitter and cuts off sweetness and alcohol.
Aftertaste has bitter hop, spicy yeasts, light blond fruit, herbs and faint honeycomb. Medium body and carbonation. Tho the dry finish helps contain the booze, each new sip adds more and more, so be careful.
A really tasty strong Belgian ale, even tho i missed the targeted season by a month or so. Warms you up right away.

Plenty of carbonation left it built quickly and ebbed away slowly. Lots of raisin in the nose with some dark fruit, molasses and caramel.

The flavors are light and sweet with molasses, maple, barley malt, prune, date and a finish of alcohol soaked raisin.

Very easy feel with a bit thinner feel than the Reserva but perhaps a more drinkable beer.

malt aroma with lots of fruit with a slightly boozey dark fruit flavor, mostly grape husk, fig and apple, somewhat slick mouthfeel, finishes pretty easy

Very low spicing, caramel notes and biscuity malts make this like a caramel cookie. Hot as it warms.
