Simple brown ale with not much distinguishing it from other Belgian brunes. Look is a normal brown, with a nice head. Smell is fairly neutral, with only grain detectable. Taste is good and well-balanced, though it's not very complex. Good mouthfeel but with slightly bitter aftertaste.

From Optimus Beer. After dinner, in Roquetas de Mar. In shaker glass. Overcarbonated. Very smooth in the palate, velvety. Very drinkable but flat. Some caramel with a neutral ending bitterness that keep some interest in it

corse dark often comes with decent Belgian ales including this one; the hint of bittersweet is accompanied by a strong acid sip which reverberates in the mouth
not my first choice sometimes nice for a change

Simply good belgian ale.
Smooth and delicious. Easy to drink, not very complex. Proper amber color, bit cloudy. Dry spicy taste, average bittness at the end. Great smell.

Recommend to try.

Cork made a nice stomp without spilling beer over. Darker amber color with a thick beige head with medium retention.
Aroma with notes of oranges, biscuit malt sweetness and mild pear and grapes.
Flavor with notes of nuts, biscuit, floral hops, light toasted, a hint of crystalized fruits and lots of pear somewhat citrusy. Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Very pleasant Belgian Pale Ale with good malt complexity, fruity notes and balanced with floral hops. Faithful to style, so don’t expect intense notes, although abv is a tad over the ceiling. This has aged well.

A friend of mine brought this back from Belgium for me and the notes on the back of the bottle are in French and Dutch. What I can make out is that is brewed for Brewery Corsendonk and has a best before date of 7/7/18.

The beer pours a medium/deep amber color and hazy with a huge fluffy white head that shows great retention. Interesting aroma, at first you get green apple fruitiness then you get caramel and herbal hops. The taste is sweet initially but gives way to an intense dryness that stays with the beer throughout. Thin mouthfeel with a tingling sensation from the strong carbonation.

Overall, this has a lot of characteristics of a good Belgian ale but could benefit from a little bit more body. I would not recommend it but am happy I got to try it.

This beer pours a hazel color with a medium sized fluffy head. The aroma offers up apricot, peach, cranberry, green apple and underripe blackberry. The flavor follow these same fruit notes, with some additional caramel flavors that in conjuction with the green apple flavor makes me think of a caramel apple sucker. The mouthfeel is light and foamy. Overall this is fun and fruity belgian offering. Nothing deep or serious, but very enjoyable.
