3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a big tulip glass. ABV 6.5%
Brown chestnut colour, seems quite clear, with nice activity in the glass. Head is tan in colour, with good height, maybe one and a half finger, good density too. Good retention as well, eventually collapses leaving light lacing around the glass and quite a bit of foam on the beer’s surface.
Aroma is slighty lactic, has some wood and cork, red fruits and grapes. Very interesting aroma. After it has warmed up a bit some caramel notes seem to surface and maybe some toffee.
Taste has a nce sourness in it, with grapes again, some more toffee now and light roasted malts, but still it’s not your typical dubbel. Red fruits dominate here, along with wood-cork and some spice like notes on the finish.
Medium on the body with a good mount of carbonation and a light dryness on the palate.
Overall this was quite nice, different than what I was expecting but still very good.

Bottle @All My Vinyl Tasting, Edinburgh. Loved the nose, excellent spicy, sherbet with some apple fruit going on, really nice. Too sweet in the mouth with a fruity unripe apple thing going on.
