L: dark-red copper color , gives a fingertip high head in the glass when i pour it, lacing seems moderate

S: Aroma is dark fruits, like figues,dates and raisins, caramel,burnt sugar, floral hops

T: candy sugar ,sweet caramel ,dark fruits, bitter hops

F: First is the instant warm feeling that comes from the high alchol content that are quite visible in the taste, bitterness is well balanced, with a moderate carbonation

O: Not a bad beer at all , is the 3 beer style i tried from Ellezoille and they all been good, but unfortunatelly i don,t think they have een any top rating beers. is a lot of much better beers in belgium. When that is said the beer is not bad at all , and very enjoyable, is just that it comes far from the really top beers in Belgium.
The design on the bottle was kind of cool by the way

Very classic amber, a little disappointing for its lack of taste. Nice clear color and some carbonation, but nothing more. Not really better than any good other amber beer you'd get.

This beer hits all the right notes. Beautiful color, aroma and taste. perfectly smooth and readily drinkable. Enjoying this on a cool fall rainy day. It fits the environment perfectly....

Large, rocky head. Leaves some thick, streaky strands of lace. Cloudy, amber color.

Excellent blend of lightly toasted malt and flowery hop. Very soft. No yeast. In a word: Superb.

Smooth tasting but not quite as beautiful as the smell. There's a gentle start with a pale malt start. The hop comes through in a subtle way. Short but pleasant aftertaste. Full bodied for the style. Proper carbonation.
