This beer, robust in taste and strength (9%) is the tops for flavour. It has a fruity and spicy bouquet, it has a stark taste, between a sharp bitterness and a caramelised flavour. It has no sugar, and this pure malt beer oscillates between various tendencies which all round off the bitterness. It has a peppery taste at the back of the mouth and a sharpness on the tongue. It is active in the mouth and lets each flavour express itself individually. It is very active in the glass which gives it a full, lasting, head. It has a long conclusion and puts emphasis on an ever present bitterness but less supported by the caramel. The final impression is one of gingerbread without sugar.

Looks amber/light brown. Pour with a small and disappearing head. Smells caramel bread. Light bodied, light bitterness. A good beer.

thirstyrabbit (1361) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle. BB 01.09.2016. Amber body with lots of floating sediment. It doesn’t settle down even after waiting. Does not look good. Medium head. Aroma has sourish hops and yeast. Not as delicate as the Brune’s aroma. Sweet appley flavour with caramel. Finish has apples that have just started to ferment. Where is the complexity that they managed to put into the Brune? Compared to that it’s a big disappointment.

Ysok02 (254) - MOns, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2015
Robe ambrée, mousse peu persistante. Nez sur des notes de malt, de levure, d’épices, de banane, de gingembre. Bouche à l’attaque ample, une belle bulle crémeuse, milieu de bouche épicé et finale sur une fine amertume et une pointe de caramel. Une belle bière ambrée qui se marie bien avec les crevettes.

Hazy orange, medium beige head. Nose is malts, fruit, some booze. Flavor is fruity sweetness, caramel, lots of malt, hints at oranges. Mild bitterness in the finish with spice notes, oranges and herbal notes. Lingering alcohol warmth. Medium body, medium carbonation. Hides the alcohol fairly well.
