A bit rubbery, with soft pale malt and a touch of apple.
Mostly sweet and warming, with pale malt aplenty but also some spicy hops buzzing around. There's more apple in evidence, and also more rubber.
Dry and increasingly bitter, but still thick and malty.
On this evidence, an enjoyable but not particularly
complex beer. It's basically sweet and then gets more bitter, but my earlier tastings of this strong, golden
French ale have shown up more of an apple and pear character, which adds to the interest considerably.

Bananas. Light malt and a bit of mustiness.
There's that familiar Belgian sweet and sourness, but it's actually quite light in the mouth.
