Tasting at home, bottle shared by Maakun. Smerig peaty, echt teveel gewoon. Kruidige yoghurt. Vreemde mix dit, erg fruitig, zoute peaty afdronk, totaal ontoegankelijk. Duurt lang om aan te wennen, maar wordt wel steeds lekkerder. Backlog from 2015/10/02.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared. Slight gusher. Clear orange golden with bubbly very short lasting off white head. Beautiful color, wish it had a nicer head. Yoghurt, peat, sweet grains, nuts, sour red wine, peach and some tropical fruits, light funk, and quite some peaty whisky. Medium sweet and light bitter finish. Over medium bodied with low carbonation. Very weird, it’s not bad but the yoghurt, fruit and peat don’t work together at all for me. Would be great without the peat maybe. Too bad this is bottled in big bottles, a small amount would be palatable but this is too much for me. The base beer is miles better than this.
