3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at HaandFestival 2012. An unclear, amber beer topped by a light beige head leaving some lacings. Belgo-sweetish on the nose, with caramel, sourish hints and a faint citrusy touch. Not much spicyness going on, neither in the aroma nor in the flavor. It’s sweet, fruity and syrupy in the mouth, with raisins and dates, some alcohol, bitterness and heral notes. Full-bodied, and with a bitter and sweet finish. Tasteful and pleasant, probably a good match with cheese and some chutney or marmalade. 120504
