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

Acquired in a trade; I'm embarrased to say I forgot who sent this bottle to me. Suffice it to say that I'm appreciative. Pours a dark maroon/copper with a firm off white head that was medium lasting. Nice when poured although very dark.

Nose is full of esters and Belgian candi sugar. Sweet stone fruit and especially ripe peaches and apricots come through in the pleasant nose.

Mouthfeel is rich and creamy; full bodied like half and half with nice champagne carbonation. Feels good in the mouth - makes you want to drink more.

Flavor profile is bitter carmel with a sweet fruit front. Rich flavors and layers of sweet fruit, malt, bitter carmel, hints of coffee and bitter toffee. I don't get Flanders Ale out of this at all - there is absolutely no sour and not tart. I get a nice "brown ale" Belgian malt profile with some added bitter hops and a carmel/bitter coffee finish.

All in all tastes good and very drinkable. Extremely well integrated and balanced and I see this with lots of food profiles.

Bottle brought back from Belgium on a recent trip. Brewed for 'de Heeren van Leiderkercke.

Body is a light opaque brown with a lovely frothy head that lasts and lasts, leaving lots of sticky lacing on the glass.

Nose is lovely, with candi sugar, coffee, chocolate and spices. Sort of smells like a darker Belgian quadruple.

Taste is sweet, malty, spicy, probably lots of coriander, but balanced by the sweetness. Lots of cocoa and light coffee in this. There is also a long dry hoppy finish to this.

Body is light and the carbonation is too, despite the long head and sticky lacing. Mouthfeel is just slightly creamy but nice enough.

A nice very sweet beer with a dry hoppy finish. More of a dubbel or quadruple than a Flanders red ale. I also know this beer which is used in the pralines sold at the restaurant 'de Heeren van Leiderkercke and at the annual Zythos festival which are delicious.

Beer specialy made for de heeren van liedekercke

33 cl bottel poured in my lost abby stemware glass ,

candyish brown ale , Toasty beer for a cold day.
Pours translucent, dark brown with amber highlights, beige head that fades too fast. Enticing nose of wrinkled dark fruits caramelized in brown sugar. Sweet flavor with depth from mild bitterness, rummy booze notes, caramel malts. Nearly cloying. Soft, pinprick carbonation, maybe a touch thin, warm. A solid house beer for a great beery restaurant.

Bottle as a gift from Joost, shared with Justin. Medium chestnut brown, nice white head. A bit of brown sugar, nice malts, some Christmas kind of spices. Cloves and allspice come to mind. Kind of Chimay Blue-like, nothing crazy but understated and well done.

330ml bottle given to me as a gift by the staff at de Heeren Van Liederkercke (for whom this beer is made exclusively for) in Belgium thanks!

Appearance: Pours a dark brown to iced tea with honey folds and a 1 finger off white crown that displays medium retention and good lace.

Smell: Belgian yeast, brown sugar and candi sugar, lightly toasted malt, slightly herbal and grassy hops. Smelled a touch more like a dubbel to me than a flanders red.

Taste: Same as the nose but with more of an herbal bite in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth up front with good carbonation in the finish.

Drinkability: Not very sweet or very sour with an easy mouthfeel.

Brown color, with ruby reflexes.
Compact and sticking foam, creamy, light brownish in color.
In the smell malt, chocolate and coffee, and some caramel, not annoying. Lightly dusty.
The taste has warm tones, with a full maltiness, a light caramel, biscuit, and dark tones, with a background quite bitter. Well balanced.
The body is resolute, and the same for the aftertaste, with chocolate, coffee, and a light hop.
And all very well amalgamated.
