une bière trop amère pour moi. Ca doit être le houblon qui doit être en trop grande quantité, en tout cas, il ne me reste pas un gros souvenir affectif.

Ambra carico, schiuma quasi inesistente, gran quantità di lievito sospeso. Aroma molto dimesso, al palato dolce del caramello, si sente bene l’alcol. Non mi ha emozionato troppo.

33cl @ bottle. Dalla Francia un’ambrata fruttata e dolce. Birra discreta anche se manca un po’ di coraggio.
