3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample @ CBC 14. Clear amber pour, thin off white head. Aroma is very herbal, yeasty and caramel malts. Flavor is quite bitter, full of yeasty alcohol. Not sure if there’s an alcohol kick in there or of it’s just some hoppy bitterness. Either way, it seems a bit strange and messy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to taster at Kuhnhenn. Looks good for the style; a transparent amberish orange with ample foamy off-white head. Smells of strong Zbelgian yeast and spices with some hops as well. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. AlrIght, but too yeasty and bubble gummy for me.

Tap. Deep amber with small head. Pretty malty base. Mild hops. Not much Belgian influence. Slightly sweet. Sneaky.
