750 ml bottle from Beverage Warehouse in Winooski, VT (November 2008), served at cellar temperature in a Duvel glass. Big fluffy lasting head laces generously when it fails atop the translucent amber-gold body....grassy, initially pil-like fresh aroma on more exploration offers some funkiness, but also a touch of skunk-like unpleasantness....the body is moderately sweet to start, some tart notes coming in midpalate, with a lightly sour, milky character towards the finish, a bit of vegetal character....I get the feeling that the wheat and especially the rice did not favor this beer; on the whole, so-so.

Light amber, off-white frothy head transforming to a nice hill in the middle of surface. Candy, perfume, dust, alcohol on nose. Medium body. Sweetish flavour. Candy, corn, perfume, dried pale fruit. Not much spirit on tongue. Light bitterness. Enjoyable enough. It has some point on it.

Evilman (131) - Taverny, FRANCE - JUL 9, 2016
Well, this one ain’t bad bud is rather disappointing to me. It has a strong alcohol aftertaste all along, not a bad thing but there barely was much more to find in it. A somewhat pleasant taste in mouth at the beginning but it tends to get boring at the end... Quite sour overall. Some might like it, it’s correct, but definitely not in my best experiences book.

Lthough sweet beers is not my kind of thing, I still like this beer. Only drink it wel chilled. This reduces the sweet caramel and pure sugar taste. It brings up a balanced hop taste. After taste is sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2016 From Alcampo. Ik Teku glass. Watching Sons of Anarchy 6x03-04. Reminds me a saison but more alcoholic. However, that doesnt spoil it but maybe even improves it. Its dangerously drinkable. Herbal
