Bière rare, mais pas vraiment agréable. Très végétale, pas équilibrée. Assez désagréable à boire.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle. Clear amber body with a medium sized tan head. Aroma reminds me a lot about this typical smell I get from malt extract brewing kit. Can’t really put my finger on it, it’s just something with malt, caramel and yeast that smells a bit unfinished somehow. Flavor is sweet malt, toast, red apples and low bitterness. Medium body and a bit fruity in aftertaste. Quite plain. I’m aware it’s brewed with gruut and that could be unusually and challenging, but I still think there should be a reason for doing such thing that has some more interesting flavor as aa result. Still want to try other beers from this brewery if available.
