3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl. bottle gifted by my father-in-law, from a gourmet boutique. It pours an odd hazy amber-brownish coloured liquid, with some big brownish yeast spots, and with a small white bubbly head (little bubbles) that lasts throughout the beer but leaves almost no lacing. The aroma is hoppy, a little yeasty and lightly minty (cardamom), with hints of herbs, fresh mint and a distant fruitiness. There is also an interesting coffee grain touch (that mixed with the mint reminds of licorice). It tastes likewise, fruitier I’d say, and with more notorious herbal hops and yeast. It is lowly sweet, with some sourness and bitterness. It is a very refreshing brew with the mint and the fruit. In the mouth it feels medium bodied, with mild but lively carbonation, ending dry with a minty citrusy (grapefruit) aftertaste. Original brew with a cool vintage presentation (though it lacks a customized crown cap).
