A nice amber color and a very nice bottle! A good malt taste, and also bitter. Long ending with an alcoholic aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
clear reddish in colour, little foam, strong aroma of raspberry jam, sweet and sparkling with a solid malt malt backbone, the finish is bitter, hoppy and with more fruity notes - a dessert beer which could get a little bit cloying at the bottom of the 1L botltle

Beautiful clean amber color; big creamy head. Pretty good beer, similar to a Bière de Garde, malty, sweet caramel, correct bitterness. Nevertheless it has a light paper aroma, very very light sourness (infection?) and light final metallic touch. Thanks Philippe (Bov) for this beer.
