From the tap, it pours mahogany with a nicely sized head. Enjoyable lightly malty and sweet scent, followed by a malty with a bit of fruitiness flavor. Curious what will happen to this now that I have heard the brand was sold...

I've probably had this three times over the last decade. (But I just started reviewing, right?)
It has some character in the nose, but its distinction comes from all the fruit on the palate.
It also has low carbonation, allowing the fruit and malt to linger.
I hope to buy this several times again during the next decade.

Reviewed in "Michael Jackson's Great Beers of Belgium", this awaits my review with another tasting.
