77ships (7682) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2016
Thank you for sharing people! Sampled bottled @ “Gouda Winterbier Festival 2016”. Deep red amber, solid tanned head. Nose is weird plants, vegetables & spoiled malts. Taste is spoiled moldy red fruits, herbs, sugar, old malts & plants. Weird messy & milky body. I quite liked the Grand Cru version but this one is an odd mess at best for me. I have no idea what happened here. Maybe a bad bottle?
