On tap, a cloudy amber beer with medium head. Aroma is grainy, malty, hints of vanilla, body is medium sweet, nice hops with almond touch. Not bat but mine had a light sourish / sherry note, don’t know if it’s wanted or not.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle bought at the brewery pub.
A very cloudy brown beer with a quickly disappearing small white head.
Aroma somewhat fresh with caramel and buckwheat? Taste is a bit sour, some caramel sweetness, some bitterness from dark malts and slight alcohol at the end. Not much hops. Still not sure about buckwheat. A nice brew, reminds me a lot of darker beers brewed in Brittany region by Lancelot or Coreff.
