Gravity cask @ In De Wildeman. Murky brown color. Beige soapy head. Aroma’s of resinous hops, brown sugar, with malty sweetness and vanilla (bourbon) retronasal. Flavor is light sweet, oak, bourbon, with a hint of acidity. Light bodied, rather thin. Soft prickly carbonation. Finishes somewhat nutty, herbal and eventually bitter. Interesting and quite nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ Wildeman, Amsterdam.
Quite a special hybrid brew. Pours hazy red copper brown, with minimal yellow-brown head. Caramel sweet nose.
Lots of big flavours: liquorice, caramel, yeast, grassy bitter hop finish. Wood ageing is there, but restrained.
Curious but strangely appealing.
