Nothing really wrong with this beer, but nothing really great about it either.

I purchased a bottle that had about an inch of dust on top....I actually go for the dusty bottles now. Ref 3880 cork and cage.

A-nice amber brown with maybe a hue of red. Large overcarbed bubbles that fizzled away very quickly.

S-I got a nice wiff as I was pouring this one. Has many similar qualities as a Dubbel, carmel, dried fruit but this one has this funk in the background!! Funk is good BTW. I almost get a slight citrus smell too.

T-This has been on that shelf for a looonng time. All the tastes have really blended with a tad of sour. It has a really refreshing light fruit, or citrus flavor up front with a carmel sourness on the back. Aftertaste is less than desired.

M-this would be a great summer brew as it has a very light and bubbly mouthfeel.

All in all- at the $7.99 I purchased this for, I will go back and buy them out. Awesome beer.

Served in a Duvel tulip glass.

"Malterie des Ramparts"? Love it. I wish I could name something I own something like that... Anyway, this stuff pours a partly cloudy deep ruby topped by a finger or so of dirty cream-white foam. The nose comprises fairly heavy acetone, toffee, light cashew, and red apple skin. Hoofah! not to my liking here. The taste holds notes of brown sugar, Diet Coke, light lemonade, fennel, caramel, and a few cashews thrown in for good measure. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly watery feel. Overall, a pretty sad beer all-around. Boo this stuff.

330ml stubby bottle poured into tulip 23/11/11

A hazy dark brownish amber with a short lived tan finger of foam that leaves no lace

S lots of brown sugar but that's not all the sugar I smell, brewers candy with some green apple, spice, yeast, and a little booze

T more yeast then the smell and just as much dark sugars, some dark fruits minus green apple and other then that it mimics the smell

M a little foamy after a silky entry and a faint sweet aftertaste lingers with some nutty tones

O decent brew I've never heard of, big on nice caramelized sugars and yet not overly sweet

grabbed this one on sale for two bits down at the Wine Market in Kensington and for the price it was a bargain
