3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear copper/amber coloured beer with a soft frothy dark white head. On the nose spices of curry, red peppers, herbs, hints of wood/pine honey and (belgium?) caramel malt develop in a complex fassion. After a light liveliness a light slick texture develops the herb/spice flavours further. The finish is long lasting and herb-like. Clearly not a mass or to everbodie’s taste but pretty interesting and complex!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Proteins all in suspension, yet only slightly cloudy foxy-copper beer, with almost no head, despite lively carbonation. Slightly sharp aroma as from (sourish) sherry. Wood, an definitely oxydation. Bitter, woody, chocolate, some spices (no idea which). After some time, a strange, albeit far from unpleasant, sweetness creeps in - thinking of rosehips’ jam, or something similar. Some aperitif - Cynar, maybe? Serious warming up to be avoided, as it turns truly unpleasantly medicinal. Feels flat, again hints at oxydaition on the palate, despite a lack of real oxydation flavours. Strange, the Orval Bretts are obvious, the result however nowhere resembles Orval. I wonder whether the flat, oxydationlike feature is a result of the "medieval" aim, or just lack of control... Whatever - it’s challenging!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Hazy amber with a small, mostly fading head. Slightly ashy nose of honey-caramely malt and spices. Flavor is honeyish, lightly sweet with bitter orange and dark fruit, notes of alcohol. Medium body, soft CO2, a bit bland palate. Ok, but not memorable or worth buying again. 5335
