UPDATED: JAN 22, 2013 22nd September 2011
On tap at Bier Temple, Amsterdam. Slightly hazy amber beer, small white head. Smooth semi dry palate with mild fine carbonation, Sweetish malt with some dried fruit. Quite a lot of estery bubblegum. Dry woody finish. Not really getting this batch. Unsatisfying. Original rating 2.7.

2nd March 2012.
A bottle this time. Cloudy brown beer, small pale tan head. Smooth palate with nice fine carbonation. Smooth mild caramel with estery bubblegum that isn’t too sweet. Holding it together is a nicely integrated red wine (red wine?) vibe that has Port like cherry and blackcurrant. A little spice and a trace of wood. Semi dry finish. Very nicely integrated.
