Martinus (2739) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2013
Slightly hazy amber colour, white head. Aroma of wood, malts, banana, quite strong alcohol, light sour touch. Dried red fruits. Sweet flavour, lots of alcohol, wood touches. Astringent mouth feel, finish wood and malts.
Supposedly aged in stainless steel tanks with wooden beams, but nonetheless a more than decent brew! Good combination with duck breast.
(From 75cL bottle @ Great Belgian Beer Dinner 2013)
