3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl Contreras family tasting. - Cultured Speciale belge, alive with hard working yeast. Caramel malts, good body, subservient earthy hops. Less easy to session than Palm or De Koninck, therefore with more to chew on and quite filling. One more convincing character concoction from Contreras.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy, dark yellowish colour. Smells sweet, fruity, yeasty and abricots. Tastes accordingly. Mouthfeel is okay, but it’s slightly too heavy on the carbo.
