3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I tried this from a bottle at a bar and later on draft at the brewery in it’s unfiltered form. Aroma is subtle Belgian character, slighly malty with a hints of grass and citrus. It has a thick, long lasting head, especially from draft. It has a satisfyingly full flavour without being overpowering or rich, slighly malty, yeasty, grassy with a smokey aftertaste. The brewery draft version had more bitter bite to it, and a bigger aftertaste that was slightly metallic, you kept wanting another sip to experience it. Very good beer!

Bottle from JSG Wine Merchants, Hills Rd, Cambridge. Yellow, very cloudy. A fair bit of tick but quickly dissipating white head. Smells of lemon, kumquat, clove and bready malt. The aroma is lighter than I expected but it’s still gorgeous. Sweet, easy taste. Citrus and spice (clove, cinnamon) very much in the fore. Light to medium body, warming alcoholic palette. This is a joy to drink.

Belle mousse. Goût houblonné très léger qui s’accentue en arrière goût. Bière qui reste légère. Classique sans intérêt particulier, mais qui se boit très facilement.
