2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
375ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Sweet aroma, some grungy graiiness to it. Pretty heady sweet taste, some alcohol in here too. Sticky palate, both from sweetness and I presume resiny hops, which at least provide some long-term interest. Yes, it uses belgian yeast, I can taste that, but the effect is so forced that it’s fake. Some acidity here, not so nice. Throw belgian yeast in, get high scores - narp, doesn’t work for me.
