3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, pours amber brown with a dense off white head. Aroma: raisins, nuts, spices. Taste: Berries, plums, spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, cumin), dried leaves, caramel, nuts. Medium sweet, light bitterness, light-medium body, average to lively carbonation, fairly dry finish. I’m not a big fan of bock beers, but Windbuul is very well balanced and surprisingly enjoyable.
