Colour murky brown, thin but nice head, good lacing in my chimay glass.
Smell is pretty nice. malts roasted malts, dried fruits, also some chocolate and vanilla in the aroma. It's all gone very quickly though, and in the taste there's mostly just some syrup, caramel, malts. There is a bit of spicy hops.
It's ok.

I had this beer in my favorite pub, the vlaamsche reus in wageningen, where it is the selected beer of the month. This beer is brewed in honor of the first and only Dutch Pope Adrianus VI, born in Utrecht in 1459.So let's see if the taste is as holey as the story suggests.

Poured into an original de Leckere glass. The beer pours a cloudy amber-orange color, with a white head.

Smell: not too special; malts, some faint spicy and flowery hops and alcohol

Taste: Sweet caramel malts in front with some light fruits (orange zest, and something slightly sour, cherrie??), spicy hops in the middle with a very short bitter hoppy after taste.

Mouthfeel: medium carbonation and a bit thin-bodied.

Overall: The holey spirit is not inside this beer. Watery beer, with a short taste that disappears soon. Nice to try once, not more
