1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from DrewFace. Pours Amber with lots of head. Aroma is wierd, hint if smoke and maybe some yeast? Taste is smoke, sweet, and other off-putting flavors. This is not good, maybe a bad bottle considering the other reviews? Hopefully we haven’t drank the same beer.

TASTE: herbs, malts, grains, little flat. Same herb combination again. Is this really 4,5% though? Tastes somewhat alcoholic...

27/IX/13 - 75cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) or De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: n/a (2013-901)
Clear dark orange to red beer, aery off-white to beige head, little stable. Aroma: very fruity, sugary, caramel, bit spicy, grapes, apple skin, slightly sourish. MF: good carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity start, little sour, apple skin, sweet and sugary as a main taste, little bitterness, fruity notes as well. Aftertaste: little bitter, very fruity, nice bitter hops, lots of citrus, feels alcoholic (which is pretty weird at 4.5%), sourish, sugary again, notes of caramel and toast at the end. A lovely beer, I tell you!
