tom10101 (2644) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Train tick. Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Murky amber with a small fizzy off-white head and little lacing. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, caramel, spices and light rotten fruits. Taste is of caramel, spiciness, yeast, light rotten fruits (less than the aroma) and light alcohol warming. Medium body. Watery. Moderate carbonation. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Slightly dry and spicy finish. Lack of balance and drinkability. Too malty and a tad off. A random tick that turned out to be quite bad.

Bottle from Reading BF 2014 and drunk at home. Mid brown hazy colour lasting beige head. Brown malt aroma with a little saison character. Not the world’s most cultured beer. Has some ok malt, Not very saisony. Little bit of citrus hop sparkle on the finish. It’s ok, just not hugely complex is all.
