Even better than last year. The anise and coriander really shine without over powering the malt. Upped my rating 1/2 star to 4.5.

Coriander chocolate anise

Very effervescent with good spicy notes. The beer has a very dark reddish hue. It doesn't have a great initial or middle flavor, but has a spiciness in the aftertaste. Make sure to pour this with a good bit of head to get the best flavor.

Very good, especially for the price.

A bit too spicy. Almost like drinking Christmas.

Wonderful ale. Crazy head, spicy and super drinkable

Nice thick body with a malty flavor. Spices like coriander and cinnamon are balanced with a subtle berry hint.

Smooth, dark, thick head. Strong spice, a little too strong for my taste (in a beer). Wears well on the taste buds.

Delicious Belgian strong ale. Nice and dark, a little bit too much coriander for my tastes ( not so much into the witbeer flavor ) but a very good beer.
