3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Misty light brown to amber body with small grey lace. Fairly dimmed aroma for what (I think) is supposed to be a hopped up ambrée. Caramel malts supporting a light foresty hop aroma yet the yeast is too dusty and, well, boring. The flavour, luckily, is much more to my taste. Smooth carmel malt body that can withstand the small yet lively carbonation and brings proper support to a meaty yeast and strong enough foresty hop bite. Drinks really well and tantalized my taste buds. Smooth and tasteful, I like it! (33cl bottle from Bière Révolution)
