poured cold from the tap at finch's a deep dark brown to a tall nonic-pint-like 13oz chouffe glass with a full finger near white head with good retention.

aroma of spice and banana.

super sweet, fruit, grapes and banana - followed by a bit of hot spice.

medium bodied, big carbonation, sweet, no bitter.

drinkable - one, maybe two. overall - great brew.

Always strange to see these beers with the litle ones on it. Normaly the beers from D'Achouffe are not counting to my favorites; just to much koreander but this one is actually good. Nice appearance, fine smell from yeast, hops&malts delicate in combination. Taste is easy and accesible; bit of malts, litle sweet and nice and dry aftertaste. Good beer!

The beer pours a dark amber color with a thick frothy white head that fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a nice complex malty scent that boasts of Belgian pale and crystal malts. It also has a zingy Belgian yeast fruitiness. The taste is good. It has a dry, yet malty flavor that goes down easy and finishes on the fruity side. The mouthfeel is good. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate cabonation. This is a good drinking Belgian. It has malt complexity and a wonderful yeasty aftertaste.

A - Pours very dark red red. 2 inches of tan head drops to a well retained fingers worth. Looks to have moderate carbonation.

S - Plum, raisin, musk, spicy alcohol, vanilla, phenols

T - Earthyness and caramel sit upfront. Peppery hops then a slightly sweet finish with alcohol present, but very well masked.

M - Quite thin and surprisingly high in carbonation.

D - Nice enough and not as much going on as others in the style. Certainly drinkable.
