PotjeBier (1603) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2013
Sample on tap @ In De Wildeman (thanks Simon!) . Cloudy orange color. Off white head. Aroma’s: sweets, sweet malts, vanilla, oak, some fruit as well. Flavor is medium sweet, alcoholic, notes of wood. Alcohol feel is fairly strong, body is medium. Still enough carbonation. Long finish with a light bitterness. Seems better now than it was when this was just released, but that might just be my memory.

Cloudy amber beer. Big tan head that tastes of oaky butter cream - yum! Semi soft dry palate. Vanilla oak and banana. Peppery spice. Trace of bubblegum and aniseed alcohol. Dry finish. If not for the spice this could pass for a dessert beer. Tasty Dutch treat!

In bottle. Pours a dark golden amber colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of raisins, honey, yeast, toffee, alcohol and oak. Similar flavours of raisins and sweet honey with alcohol fairly present. A little sweet overall with moderate carbonation and light CO2 prickle with a foamy mouth-feel.
