3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In Au Trappistes in Paris: This has a lovely brown body and light creamy head. The chocolate nose impresses but the overall experience is let down by a fairly sparse body. While this is on lees there are no notes of diacetyl or autolysis. Good lacing all the way down

Yeasty barnyard sour malt, some bread, and light hops. Clear dark red-brown with foamy light tan lacing head. Medium body with medium-heavy carbonation. Starts with light acidity, sweet caramel malt. Raw vegetable. Finish is light bitter with acidic tang, same light sweetness. After is mild nutty bitterness, but not lasting or strong.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden (hazy if you pour the whole beer) orange/red colour with a beige head. Malty aroma. Has an unpleasant metallic aroma in the beginning, but it disappears as it warms, and makes way for buckwheat instead. The flavour is malty and it has a slight sourness, but is also sweet. A bit dry. Not so much to say. A decent beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ample buckwheat roastiness leading to nascent oxidation...Dry fruit in a bed of ashes creating suggestive caramel sweetness...I am afraid I have to condemn it for inducing boredom...

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep orangey copper body with no head, but intense carbonation. Light malty aroma with licorice and dark fruits. The flavors come out rather strong at first, but they just don’t carry in the finish, that is particularly watery while being slightly tart. In the middle, there’s a big sugary and peppery rye and acid fruits aspect, but the shortness kills it. A bit too candyish, but I like its differences, if only it had a bit more lenght...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown color with reddish hues. Cloudy like every other Britt I’ve had the privilege to taste. Very subtle aroma of malt, fruit (maybe melon) and caramel. The flavor is slightly tart and fruity (melon). Bitter finish. A strange and intriguing beer.
