pleasant small white-tan head, actively carbonated. half-liter swing-top bottle.

nose is somewhat malty with distinct but light smokiness. not much else, light hints of floral hoppiness but it is secondary.

taste is less great at first, biting maltiness not atypical of the belgian brune style, the smokiness in the taste is absent. fairly bitter into the finish, honestly not a lot here at this point in the bottle.

not my favorite style, but a tasty rendidtion and worth trying.

No freshness date carved in. Overwelming and lasting head and a dark brown beer. Nos is very fruity and fresh giving koreander and good hops( dry?!) Great candysugar with it and good maltyness with litle sournote complete the nose. Taste is also good and thin bodied. Litle sourness, good candysugar, litle sour cherry, caramellic maltnotes and a moderate bitterness in the end. Yes this brew shows delicasy and has great and balanced mouthfeel as carbon dioxide and alcohl fit and enwider the taste and mouthfeel. Great beer to enjoy and IMO great beer.

Red mahogany in color, beige foam, quite compact. Decent appearance.
The smell is caramel, and a light fruitiness. But the smell is very light, somewhat anonymous.
The taste is quite light too, without any peak. Just a hint of caramel, fruit like peach and cherry, and a light vanilla note.
Not much definible, quite anonymous.
It is also quite drinkable, yes, but it is quite faint.
In the aftertaste, some bitter herb, maybe rhubarb. A little better.
