Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of KimJohansen. Pours an opaque cloudy golden with lots of floaties and an off-white head. Extremely lively - comes gushing. Aroma of lactic acid and smoke. Medium body, sweet caramel accents and smoke with a lactic touch. Ends dry and sourish. Probably wasn’t intended like this, but quite interesting. 190210

15th August 2014
GBBF Day 4. The great Harrisoni/madmitch76 walkabout. Bottle. Hazy amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is very airy, fine carbonation but it’s a tad over carbonated. Light caramel malts and light cream. Traces of smoke and citrus. Light savoury note. Dry crisp finish. Pleasant, light and sweetish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Bier Circus, Bruxelles, bb Dec 2013
Cloudy amber color, with creamy head. Delicate aroma of smoke and malt, followed by light Belgian yeast. Malty flavor, with delicate smoke, some caramel.
In my opinion the Belgian character and quite bold bitterness don’t mix as well with the smoke as the German beers do.
