3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 300 ml at home, poured into a snifter. ABV 7.5%
Light mahogany brown colour on the body, with one finger of light beige head.
Low retention, light lacing on the glass.
Aroma is fruity, bubblegum, unripe bananas, alcohol notes. Very nice and appealing.
Taste is also fruity, especially on the aftertaste. Bubblegum, grapes. Again some alcohol notes. Begins with a touch of acidity and turns to
very bitter, with a long duration.
Medium thin body, good and soft carbonation. Very dry on the palate.
Overall a nice and pleasant surprise. Maybe not exactly following the styles guidelines but
this bitterness is always welcomed. Really good.

Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a dark brown colour with a thick bubbly off-white head. The aroma is a little malty and yeasty. The flavour is a little sour, yeasty and with some malt on the palate. Very drinkable and I’d like to try it a little cooler one day.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle looks good, although its a bit complex. Beer in the glass dark, almost black, nice head. Starts strong, fine malty, not too roasty. Some interesting malty-spicy notes with fruity hints. Finish more dry, well balanced. Warming aftertaste. Nice!
