33cl bottle, thanks Pierre for the bottle. Ambrée, col crémeux épais beige. Arôme est caramel, malté léger, pointe d’épice oscillant vers la cannelle, et un léger ajout biscuité. Houblon ajoute un fine touche d’herbacé. Levure se fait plus présente une fois arrivé à mi-bouteille pour un bouquet qui alterne alors sr la malt. Palais est ici bien malté sans être surfait. Note de sucre candi, speculoos avec pour moi un rappel aux baies de genévrier. Garde en bouche ce profil épicé hivernal, notamment sur de la cannelle. En retrait le houblon trouve une place qui aide à développer un palais houblonné amer oscillant vers le citronné et qui démontre bien que l’on reste dans un style très belge. Levure se fait aussi présente et au final, le tout laisse une fine pellicule collante-sucrée aux lèvres. Au niveau du malt,c e dernier présente aussi une fine note chocolaté qui se mixe à ce côté houblonné feuillu-citronné amer.
