3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Near clear golden pour with good layer of white head. Big boozy beer. Sweet notes of pear of honeydew and lavendar. Belgian semi-funky yeast.
Bready. Old and musty. Woody and a little vinous as well. Don’t think I actually like it all that much.
