sebletitje (6680) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2013
Draft sample @ ZBF’13 shared with the RB Belgian crew. Cuivre, col beige crémeux. Arôme donne de suite le ton avec un alcool qui est prenant. Ayant pu sentir la bière encore dans la barrique chez Alvinne, cette version est déjà plus atténuée avec un fruité et sucré moins visible. Grade néanmoins ce bouquet fruité de raisin et vin très agréable et des notes maltées. Palais donne de suite le côté réchauffant de l’alcool, note de spéculoos, sucre brun et ce vin espagnol rouge prenant sans pour cela dominer. Malt caramel, grillé en fin de bouche. Je n’ai pas vraiment pu détecter les houblons, qui ici semblent noyer dans les 13%. Peut sembler un peu trop douce, à voir comment cela va évoluer dans le temps.

Sampled @ Haand 2013. Hazy reddish orange with a tan head. Aroma is vinous alcoholic with dry fruit and caramel malt. Flavor is sweet, fruit and berries, sweet malt and alcohol in the range of port vine or sherry. Full body and almost sticky sweet aftertaste with warming alcohol. A bit too sweet and boozy, but somehow quite pleasant in smaller amounts.
