Meh pretty boring ale. Had at JKO and was pretty dissapointed. It does not have a perticularly strong aroma but it does have some nice malts and a non-existant finish.

Grima (2072) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2013
750ml bottle from Auchan Market, Luxembourg City!
Pours dark reddish brown with high, white soapy head. Smells malty-caramelly with some dark fruits. Starts fruity malty with lots of dark fruits and some belgian yeast. The middle part has lots of dark fruits and belgian yeast, paired with some floral hops. Goes into a very fruity-malty finish with a slight alcoholic note and lots of belgian yeast.
