Colour is between red en light brown. Bittersweet taste with some plum and raisin details. Good beer, but not d'Achouffes greatest work though.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a turbid, chestnut, almost mahogany, color with a tan head that drops to a chunky raft and leaves some good lacing behind.
Smell is sweet, malt, faint dark fruit, white grapes, light yeast. Great balance.
Taste is exactly what you'd expect from the nose, grape juice, malt, sweetness, a faint yeastiness, some wood. Again, very well balanced.
A lot lighter bodied than anticipated, light effervescence, slightly warming and a faint dryness.
