3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
One of those Bouillon beers themed around life in the Ardennes, this one with a light beige, very thick and rocky, moussy head, stable and sticky, and a deep copper colour, perfectly balanced between light and dark, misty. Yeasty aroma, some citric acid (almost certainly an infection), walnuts, caramel, honey, sherry, vanilla, lemon peel, figues, mint, cloves. Crisp fruity taste with again that citric sourness, drying the palate, built on a caramelly malt base which becomes stronger and nuttier as the palate progresses, some floral hops in the end. Hadn’t it been for the souring infection, this would have been one of the best Bouillons I had so far.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2nd Beer in a random tasting evening at my house on 30 May 2013 (only me here).
33cl squatty bottle (BBD of 11/2013) into a Westmalle chalice, sediment and all: looked like a Westmalle Dubbel, it was clear until the last bits flew out the bottle to give the beer a duller, fuller look.
As I studied the art work on the bottle label I sniffed my beer: chilled too much, so hardly any aroma. When the beer warmed a little I got plum loaf maltiness and toffee esters.
The taste is fairly sweet, plum loaf again, but with raisins and dark malty molasses all mixed up within a bowl of yeasty alcohol. I like sweet brews, so this did the trick for me: it’ll be too sweet for some, as most Belgian Brunes tend to be.
Body wise and mouthfeel: fine, depth suited the brew and alcohol strength.
