3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
200 ml from a bottle thanks to a guy at BeerTemple. Clear deep amber pour with bubbly off white head. Aroma is really malty, nice mix of Alesmith malt :fruits, molasses, raisins and classic Belgian spicy notes, cinnamon, coriander, black pepper. Taste is sweet, malty, but with little residual sweetness. Palate is med-full bodied with good carbonation. Really easy drinking. Lives up to the Alesmith reputation.

Pours clear reddish brown with a slight head that dissipates quickly, no lacing, this beer is not about the appearance. Wonderful aroma of red grapes, honey, vanilla, slight earthy notes. This is a very unique beer, I haven’t had anything like this before, almost like an Oud Bruin. Medium sweet, slightly sour, very little bitterness, and some spicy, fruity aspects, extremely clean finish. Even has kind of a red raspberry dimension to it, very interesting. I would get this again, very satisfying.

750 ml bottle. Hazy reddish brown colour, thin light beige head. Sweetish aroma of dried fruits and caramel malt, with notes of spices and sour berries. The flavour is toasted malty, with berries and dried fruits, a little caramel sweetness, and a spicy finish with warming alcohol. Good stuff.
