4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2013 From draft, 2oz hazy burnished brass pour at bar in middle of a grocery store. This Glazen Toren was aged in pinot and gin barrels and displayed a layered aroma to reflect such a pedigree: toasty, prickly and sweet. The estery flavors wer even more esoteric, but I got some mineral sparkle, fresh wood, spring flowers and sunshine. Taught, lean-bodied, highly carbonated. Elegant
