3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber. Moderately aromatic in general with hints of ripe fruits, pancake batter, caramel and flowers. Well masked alcohol, considering the ABV of this was 8%, assuming I am not mistaken. Notes of banana, clove, toasted malts, spoiled red apples and fruit. I enjoyed this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Head is mostly lasting. Body is light to medium amber. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. A nice malty ale, almost in the biere-de-garde style.
