3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle in Teku glass. Pours a medium, creamy white head ; colour it’s dark orange, almost amber, quite hazy from some perspectives and with golden clear reflexes from others. Aroma it’s malty, sweet, grainy, and very fruity: smells kamut wheat, apricots/plums and honey, with a beautiful bouquet of spices. Taste it’s initially very malty and sweet: honey, banana, ginger, spices, tea and grain. Then progressively turns to a sour and very! delicate bitter finish: great balance here, sweet spices like myrrh, with ginger that gives an awesome refreshing and acidic touch. Pleasant sweet/sour and bit dry finish, with a light hop presence. You can definitely taste myrrh notes, especially in the end, which are a bit woody and "camphor" like. A balanced, delicate and original beer (as Baladin tradition).
PS. A sort of hybrid between an Amber Ale and a Saison, highly reccomended to spice lovers

Nice Christmas-like ale with the ginger and myrrh. Spice and a little sweet. Not sure what this kamut grain is, and there may be a little light bretta in this. Grapefruit. Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso Dupont.
