3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the DISOB tasting, Den Haag. Poured a clear copper colour with a glass hugging off white head. The aroma and indeed the flavour are rich and fruity with red berries. It’s also a little metallic in the palate and somewhat sweet. Would quickly become sickly I feel.

Bottle @ ABCBeers, Dean’s scared of beer tasting. Hazy copper pour with chunks. Aroma of metallic sugary malts with sweaty malts and madeira. Flavor is sweet malty sugars, boring and off balance.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a golden copper slightly with a large beige frothy head. The head subsides leaving good lacework. I assume clumped yeast is what is floating in the beer, as the bottle has yeast in it.
Aroma starts with a sweet caramel and slight spiciness.
The flavor is very metallic. Disappointing! However, the mouthfeel is a good medium, with good carbonation and a slight creamy feel.
A medium dry finish, with a slight alcohol warming.
Overall, a good beer, I think the metallic is possibly from age or bad handling. Will get more and try again.
