1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle: Past BB: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Medium sized white foamy head on top of a hazy amber brown colored beer.
Aroma is dirty: smells like an alcohol free beer with an overdose of oat, very old malts, old dusty spelt and horsefeeder/dog food.
Flavours of malts, toast, bitters, herbs, hay, plants, bit like a dunkel but very unbalanced...
Aftertaste is bitter, malts, nutty, toast and yeast ish tones.
Low carbo, creamy spicy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy texture.
Not sure what happened, but this one is bad!

Freshly bitter and quite dry and grassy beer, almost like a yeasty saison. Liked it.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fairly clear bronze coloured body with a light orange glow and a thin, one centimetre tall plain white head. Aroma of pale malt, alcohol, rice and perhaps a touch of hops - not much though. Light-bodied; Assertive grape flavour with a little malt, some alcohol notes and a funky cardboard flavour. Aftertaste shows a lot of grape flavours, some light yeast notes and a hint of grassy hops - not much going on here at all. Overall, not too great with more of an emphasis on fruits than hops and the malt doesn’t blend well either - plus a bit too much alcohol flavours. I wish I would have brought something different back home - but still, nice to try from the other side of the pond. I sampled this 33 cL stubby bottle purchased from Cracked Kettle in Amsterdam, the Netherlands on 03-January-2011 for €2,49 sampled at home in Washington on the other side of the Atlantic on 02-July-2013.
