Ruby colour with a creamy short light brown head. Fig, prune caramel and mild yeast aroma. Sweet fig, caramel flavours. Lacks depth. Light spice in the finish. Nice though lacks depth and alcohol shows.

Thanks to alobar. A second in a pair of this brewers offerings. Aroma strong astringent apple. Pour was a brownish copper. Flavor was apple and spice, definite sugar. Palate was ok I thought it finished nice. Overall not bad at all.

lots of apple in nose, pours a bronze color with a thick foamy white head, flavor is almost a hard apple cider, but there is a strong abv component to the flavor and the aftertaste. the apple and spices were nice and sweet, but there was too much abv in this one.. thanks alot to alobar for providing the ciney trifecta...i would have to say the brune was the best of the bunch,

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) Dark amber with quite a huge head. Malty but the bitter hops seems to dominate in a harsh not so pleasant way. 110893
