3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of Ronnie at Max’s - thank you Ronnie! Slightly cloudy amber with no head and scant lacing, certainly nothing like the picture. Aroma of apricot and grapefruit. Taste has notes of citrus and light spice, slightly sour finish. Interesting.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl bottle. Small off-white head atop cloudy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, some skunk. Taste is medium sweet, candi sugar, some skunk/herbal, light alcohol. Light-medium body. I so enjoyed the Embrasse, so this was quite a disappointment.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, wish i poured it as awesome as the pic above. Pour a hazy amber copper toned body with an off white head. Fruity with candy and bubblegum notes, yeast spices with some light woodiness. Sweet and dusty malt body with a light warming and a dry finish. A nice ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 330ml. Lightly spicy, very grainy, wheaty nose, mild prickly fruits and charcoal. This is supposed to have some kind of smoke in it, and I can maybe see a little bit of peat in the flavor but that’s only if I dig for it. Nice thick body while still retaining an easy drinking palate, spicy and husky and very dry.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 6.5%. Sweet, dusty, malty aroma. Hazy red brown colour. Stable tan head. The flavour starts off with a bit of yeast and paper, not bad though. Good sweet maltiness. Mild bitterness, getting a bit rough in the finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at 3rd Brugs BF. Hazy amber colour, dense off white head. Aroma of fruits, light caramel and some glue/acetone. Flavour is fruity, light smoked, caramel, some glue, light bitter finish. A bit sharp mouthfeel. Light to medium bodied. Had the feeling this beer was a bit off..

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a transparent bright copper orange with a light-lacing froth of white head. Aroma of soft doughy pale malts with some floral grassy hop notes. Starts with decent fullness, good carbonation and a mild biscuity malty sweetness with some nice earthy hop bitterness and a hint of floral esters before a smooth, bittersweet finish with some lingering hay character. Very true to style and drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. Very nice amber coloured beer. Not very present in the nose, but when taking a big mouthful. you are rewarded with the combination of bitterness and smoked malt. It’s very personal, but I like it a lot, as it distinguish itself from other beers. Goes perfect with smoked eel, smoked salmon and a barbecue.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drank it on tap at the brewery itself. Amber/red coloured beer, with smoked malt which makes it quite interesting to drink. Bit bitter with small hints of Wheat. But not my type of beer, to many styles for one beer imo.
