Roodbruine kleur met een volle crème kraag. Ruikt fruit, zoetig en mout. Smaakt beetje zoet, herfstfruit, vanille. Iets bittere afdronk.

Zwaar. Donker, prima schuim. Lekker zwaar, karamel, veel smaak. Droplucht. Mooie fles maar dat boeit niet zoveel

TheFoamhead (124) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2015
The taste is characterized by a subtle sour fruity note that accompanies the flavours of sweet caramel and roasted malt. It’s quite round but the body is too light for a beer of this category and the finish is sadly very short. A bit mainstream - a bit too mainstream even… But of good quality.

A flowery aroma with a touch of honey. A little bit of caramel in the taste, with a nice bitter start and ending.
