3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice crisp deep copper coloured body with hints of brown and a thinnish tan head. Aroma of apples, pears, fresh malt, nuts, caramel and a hint of perfume. Medium-bodied; Sharp malty flavour with a good fruit overtone and pit fruits finishing off strongly. Aftertaste shows a little nuttiness, malt and a tiny bit of hops - all with some sweetness. Overall, a pretty easy-to-drink beer with good flavours and a nice fruity taste that is coupled with good malt. I sampled this 25 cL bottle purchased on 11 March 2008 at Beer Mania in Bruxelles, Belgium, sampled on 19-August-2008 home in Washington, D.C.
