3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small dirty-beige head over red-brown hazy beer. Leafy-earthy nose, not rich but complex; autumn leaves and chestnuts. Some hidden, but very noble and enriching hops. Earthy again, brown leaves, soyamilk, and again "dark" hosp. Medium bodied, medium carbonated, but refreshing and giving a ’nourishing’ impression. Authentic recipe or not, again a masterpiece by the Jandrain-Jandrenouille gang. Probably the best new Walloon brewer.
