3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of Fonefan, thanks Jan. The color is copper and the head is huge and creamy. The aroma has a light sourness and notes of berries, wood, malt and caramel. The flavour has a light sourness and a moderate sweetness with notes of caramel, berries, wood and dark fruit. It’s pleasant to drink, and the sourness is far from extreme, perhaps it’s a bit too sweet.

Bott 75cl @ brasserie420
Light brown reddish color, longlasting foam.
Light acetic aroma, some sweet fruit to it.
Fruity tastes, peach, apricot, mildly sweet. Nice straitforward aceticnes, but not in your face!
A great interpretation of this stile!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at pre-Zythos bash, Alvinne, March 2009. Orange/amber colour with nice condition. Very good old brown style. Has plenty of woody, old musty, vaguely mushroomy (in a good way) character in the aroma. More woody vinous notes on the palate, maybe some licorice and raisiny fruit. The sourness is more of an edge than full on. Doesn’t have too much clashing sweetness that some beers in this style have. Good drinking stuff.

Bottle at Wildeman. Murky amber body with slight head. Nose of fruits, and cheesy. Taste is also of fruits with sourness. Not too much, which is nice. Malts and caramel also up front. Pretty good.
