Bottle. A glowing brown beer, clear, topped by a small, dark beige head. The aroma has dark dried fruits and vinegar, some notes of spices too. Vanilla. Dry, soft on the palate, medium body. Vinegar hints, fruityness, some dried fruits and vanilla hints in the flavor. Lasting finish with fresh and dried fruits and some vinegar. A pleasant one, that’s for sure, but I think it lacks a bit on complexity. 130309
