3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 0.75l. Pours thick hazy amber/muddy brown body with big and frothy beige head. Good lacing and retention. Smell is really nice, herbal and fruity with a hint of caramel.
Medium body with thick texture, softly carbonated. Lovely balanced bittersweet taste with a touch of alcohol on the tongue. Aroma of malts, yeast, wheat, brown sugar, raisins, berries, caramel and toffee. Herbal and bready. Slightly sticky mouthfeel with dry and somewhat boozy finish.
Overall, really nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 750ml. -from Mercator Brežice. Dark amber coloured, medium sized beige head, pleasant nutty chocolate nose. Moderate sweet malty, caramel, yeast and spices with mild nutty notes in the finish. Pretty dry finish also with a whiff of chocolate, overall very good beer. Much better and almost 2.50€ cheaper (8.79€/10.99€) than their "white brothers" (Blonde and Belle d’Ete).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Intensive aroma and flavor. One of the best among other La Trouffette brand. Still has this quite strange funky wood and juniper like taste behind. Apart that dominating aromas are chocolate and dried fruits with a decent flowery hop bite. Easy to drink and the alcohol is well hidden.
