3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Haand Festival. It pours an uncleaer, light brown body under a finger-thick dark beige head leaving lacings. The aroma has balsamic vinegar, some caramel and funk, lemon juice, prunes and raisins. It’s dry and puckering on the palate, medium to full-bodied, and with a bit too much carbonation. Caramel sweetness in the flavor, some dried fruits too, but it’s the funk and balsamic vinegar that runs the show. Lasting finish. A nice one indeed, and even though it leans towards vinegar I don’t find it too much. 130525
