4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (33 cl) at Kulminator, Antwerp, Belgium. This never-heard-of triple poured hazy amber with a large off-white head into my glass. A complex earthy malt aroma with notes of yellow apples, butterscotch, wood, and some barnyard emerged from the glass. The mouthfeel was very soft, with a light prickling carbonation. Very well balanced with a dry but somewhat too short finish. A highly pleasant surprise.

The pour reveals a cloudy dark gold color with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet (caramel) and fruity. The flavor has a pleasant blend of hops, chewy malt, caramel and candied fruits. The body is light to medium and the carbonation is lively.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2007 buona, non eccezionale, ma temevo molto peggio perché l’ho comprata del tutto ’a caso’ da Squillari (pagata 2.00 o poco piů). Mi ha fatto molto piacere assaggiarla.
