Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, 2012, London. Pours hazy, amber-brown with a fine, off-white foam head. Tangy, semi-dark fruits character, some berries and sugar. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Tangy finish, some leather and berries. No. Pretty poor. I ask much more of a dubbel, to be perfectly honest with you.
