JorisPPattyn (9471) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2003
Chestnut colour, all clear. Slight head, yellowish, irregular. Nose of brown gingerbread, pudding, vanilla. Sweet taste, malty upbuild, surrounded by roasted-bitter maltbite. Almondy flavour, perfumey. Medium-bodied. More almondy sweetness in the aftertaste. The overly perfumed character gets annoying after some time, like an unrefined brandy.
