Interestingly, this beer tastes watery from the barrel; From the bottle it is like a different drink, it has more body and flavour and deserves its title as Antwerp's beer.

Beautiful dark amber colour and a full head in the beginning, but this quickly turns into a thin layer. Smell of caramel, cherries, malt and some brown apple. Taste has the same flavours, though it is less sweet than you would expect. It is actually very well balanced. Mouth feel is medium and smooth. Not a very complex beer, but it is meant to be an alternative for the basic pilsener in a bar, and it does a very good job at that.

33cl bottle bought from De Hopduvel in Ghent. Clear amber pour with a thin light-tan head. Smells of caramel, generic bitter hops, dried fruit and metal. Light bodied and refreshing mouthfeel, bitter and crisp, not as sweet as the nose would suggest.

Served on a glass in a bar. The color is amber reddish. The smeel is quite good. The foam forms a small head. Middle carbonation can be seen and perceived. Overall, a quite decent beer.
