3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Middle brown color with white foam head. Scent of sweet berries. Taste watery with a strange bitterness. Possible that this is the influence of the mushrooms because I can’t find it anywere else.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, BB 08/01/16, large sample. Slight hazy copper color, medium light brown head. Aroma is nutty, some caramel, spicy yeast, earthy. It has an aroma that is quite unfamiliar, so I guess that might be caused by the mushrooms. Quite dry mouthfeel, lots of carbonation that flushes away the flavor. It has some sweetness, bit spicy. Aroma is weird but ok, but there is little flavor because of the carbonation. Taste improves in strength while sipping, but it gets sweeter every sip now.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 7.5%
Pours a brown coloured beer, clear body with good activity in it, with a tall light brown head on top, collapsing fast for the first half but then mainting its remaining size for quite long. Light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of dark fruits, plums, dates, black grapes.
Tastes the same, lots of dark fruits, red and black grapes, reminding wine. No signs of the alcohol or the mushrooms.
Medium thin body, okay carbonation, nice dryness on the palate.
Not a bad strong belgian, not anything special either but for that price it is a bargain for the coming cold nights.
