3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl, at RBNG-14 Grand Tasting. An unclear, golden colored beer, flat as a pancake. Berries, honey and a generic fruityness in the aroma. Pretty vinous too. It’s full-bodied and almost flat, with boozy notes. Apricots, honey, vinous booze and some faint peppery notes in the flavor. Lasting boozy finish. Not sure about this one, I like the vinous touch although it’s too boozy, but then it’s too boozy... Nice aromas and flavors though. 140215
