3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber color, with yeast sediments, which I poured. Quick dissipating creamy head. Nicely blended flavors of fruity yeast, bready malt, anise, ginger, molasses and herbs. Balanced towards the sweet side but with a touch of bitterness at the finish. Earthiness worthy of a Belgian artisanal as well, somewhat reminiscent of De Dolle and Chouffe beers.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber body, small head. Sweet caramel, candy. Medium carbonation, quite sweet, but tolerable as the carbonation and starting bitterness balance a bit. Very sweet beer overall but sometimes that’s not so bad. (33cl bottle from ABS Drinks)

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I was expecting a fruity beer with the label on the bottle, but all I had was sugar (not too much, at least) and alcohol.
Strong aroma directly linked to the taste.
It was nice to discover something new but it’s not a beer I would choose if it was sell in a pub.

Beer typical of homebrews. Alcohol rather present for its 7 ABV. A bit sweet and very normal.
