I just found this today in a little cafe just outside of Brugge, I don't know how many they have so I'm not going to reveal it's location! I'm going back :)
Best before 11/2014 but I've never let that put me off drinking a bottle condition beer before!
A. Red Brown ale with a good tan coloured head, poured into a De Struise Brouwers glass.
S. Fruity
T. The extra long maturation in the bottle had mellowed the hop attack but not it's lost all of it's bit. I like to imagine that is what an IPA might have tasted after it's long sea voyage to India. You couldn't feel the hop bitterness at the front of your mouth, it was more a middle of the mouth experience, and the overriding taste that it brought to my mind was Christmas Pudding.
All in all a lovely well attenuated ale which I'll be drinking again on my next visit :)
