Sigmund (5316) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2013

Embrouille (2830) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 25, 2013
Bottled 75cl. Hazy golden with a tall chunky mountainous white head. Peppery yeasty nose which is reminiscent of tropical fruit, earthy spicy hops and cloves. Mediocre hop profile which isn’t all that well integrated. Flawless and very belgian but fails to convince me. Dandelion in the finish.
