3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good, creamy, cream-coloured head, irregular over slightly hazy dark orange-foxy beer; some lace. Very fruity-perfumay first whiff, as from raspberries. Keeps fruity with caramel or toffee, and a bit of orange rind. Dry, leafy flavour with caramel filling, nutty and toasted. Ends rather pastry-sweet. Liquorice warming up. Very fizzy, titillating MF, high saturation. Medium bodied, quite slick, even oily. Nothing bad to tell, except... so terribly predictable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Red amber and heaped with froth. Waxy, nutty, grainy aroma in the manner of a Mediterranean interpretation of a ’red’/amber ale. Flavour fuller, and quite a pleasant balance of caramelised malt nuttiness, bread, cherry and pear.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
75 cl bottle. The head is nice and golden, but not very lasting. The color is truly amazing, just like liquid amber. The aroma is malty and the mouthfeel is kind of round and prickly. The flavour is kind of apple juice-like at first, but then I get notes of candy sugar and sweetness. The finish is both sweet, a bit acidic, a bit bitter and it has a burnt note of apples.
