3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2015 37,5cl bb09/2034. Bodacious yellow pour, mid-fizzy, thick white head. Worty, malt-infused lemon rind aroma with sturdy barnyard, mild old cider. Taste is straightforward like an old lemon rind cider, just as smooth and sturdy as Boon and Moriau from the same pedigree, with mid-lingering berry notes towards refinement. Manages to do a less spectacular job than Tilquin with
less refinement as well in the +6% league, but still very sturdily on-topic, easily drinkable and quenching.
