375 ml @ Antwaerps Bierhuiske. Traditional green bottle / lovely design in tune with their other standard offerings. Pours a dark red hued amber with a quickly diminishing white head / only a patchy film remains. Smell is full of other grains, their profile, spelt, rye, full grain bread, spices and caramel sweetness,… Taste is sweet other grainsm rye, spelt, lots of spices, alcohol, marinated dark fruits, grains, malts, touch boozy, caramel and some hops,… Rather full, lively carb. I am digging this much like their standard line-up.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12.7 oz Bottle, best before C 2 12, which I think means 2007, purchased at Kingstown Liquors - North Kingstown, RI. This bottle is just as old as the bottle of blond that I just had, but for some reason it’s about half as exciting. It lacks the zingy, golden punch of the blond, the light tartness, the warmth, the spring sunshine. The amber malts just dampen the effect and make this feel like old early spring Bock.
