3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at La Porte Noire in Brussels. Amber color with big, white head that fades to persistent layer. Slightly sourish, cidery nose, grainy like speculoos cookies. Tart, cidery flavor with caramel malt and dusty-hop backdrop. Fairly dry with lightly bitter aftertaste. Interesting and light enough to refresh. Love to try it on tap.

Bottle. Pours a deep golden colour with a white head. The aroma has notes of herbs, yeast, spices and orange with some soap on top. The flavour has some sweetness and has notes of yeast, bitter herbs, orange peel and spices. You do feel the alcohol. I’m not that impressed.
