Complex medicinal aroma, some peat?!? some wood... finish has hints of candy... simple sweet taste, quite bland... it lacks body though, pretty watery...

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasting a few unfiltered beers recently, but none with such a high alcohol content as this brew. This has a very distinct fruity- malty- herb- spice flavour that really hits the taste buds. Unfortunately I drank this too cold, straight from fridge, whereas 10-12 deg C as prescribed above, would have given a better indication of overall taste/flavours. I enjoyed it though. Nice label noted and purchased from Decant Vintners & Epicures in Mandeville Street, Riccarton, Christchurch. Awesome cafe/wine & beer store.

Slightly hazy. Powerful flavor,lots of malt. Sugar and hops and alcohol in a very harmonic balance. Dried fruit in the aroma, flavor of christmass bread and toasted nuts. Refreshing and tempting.
