2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at In de Wildeman, sample courtesy of Andrejes, Very dark purp brown pour, no head or lacing, very thick beer for a saison, Notes were too sweet, smokey, with some soy sauce and dark fruit dominating. I think this was one of the first kegs if not the first, one of the last beers I tried on the trip.
