COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A demi-sec ale brewed with whiskey yeasts, from the island of Islay, creating striking dryness and lively effervescence. The nose showcases almond and tropical fruits. The palate is malty, with flavors of plum, dried apricot, and spice. It’s finish is dry and warming from the high alcohol. Rare on tap!

Kleurplaatje (126) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2016
Pours hazy amber with no head. Malty and vinous aroma with clear notes of dark fruits, yeast, nuts... Some roastiness as well. Very interesting. Taste is moderately sweetish with clear yeasty notes. Some bitterness accompanied by the tones of the dark fruits. Bit warmish burn in the aftertaste. Something acidic as well, but that is just a minor point. Bit dry in the end. Medium bodied, bit thinnish in texture and a bit too carbonated. That’s something that have could been much better. Yet, it is a quite well-balanced brew. All in all a very good find.
