2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has sweetness, notes of malt and light citrus and apple. The flavour has sweetness, a light citrussy bitterness, notes of malt, alcohol (quite a bit) and light hints of coriander and yeast. IMO the alcohol should be more subdued, and that makes the overall impression somewhat unbalanced.

Light orange, little head. Huge ginger and sweet hoppy aroma. Taste is disappointing initially - a bit alcoholic, but mellows later. Leaves hops, which is nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at RNH. Slightly hazy golden pour. Tight creamy white head. The nose is softly spicy. Initially the beer has a peppery character and there is a very rich creamy palate. Bright earthy Belgian pale malt with a nice rusticity. Lightly wheaty with anice light spiciness as well. Fairly fruity (melons) which is also quite nice. Softly marshmallowy with a little bit of light cotton candy as well. There is a little bit of Saaz noble hoppiness. Pretty damn nice brew. I don’t know how 12% importer keep finding these really great, rustic examples, but they do.
