3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Couleur du miel avec un col moyen blanc. L’arôme terreux et un peu aigre du levure sauvage, un peu du miel, cire d’abeille, et un peu du malt léger. Le goût est du miel, levure sauvage, un peu du malt, et tout est très bien équilibré avec un amertume léger dans la finale. Haut carbonatation et léger en bouche.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
My research leads me to believe that when ratebeer calls this a traditional ale they mean that this is a Scottish Gruit. Proper glassware is a mug and that’s what I had it in.
The appearance was a nice hazy golden orange to yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about less than a minute. The lacing was somewhat spotty and somewhat clingy here and there.
The smell was sweet herbal, light white wine (but nice). Light citrus fruit amplifies a silky sweet underlying malt.
The taste was herbally sweet with a nice florally silky and somewhat light acceptable white wine balanced by citric fruits.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a nice sessionable quality about it. The carbonation was there - good. I have to say there’s a nice smooth sweet herbal quality rolling over my tongue.
Overall, I like this one and would definitely come back to this.
