sebletitje (6969) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2013
bouteille 33cl BB 10/2014. Cuivrée, col fin beige-blanc cassé. Arôme est ici en faveur du houblon qui m’a marque d’emblée. Note fleuri et herbacée le tout suivi par ce bouquet type de barley wine; caramel, malté accompagnés de fruité noir léger. Palais reste de premier abord dominé par le houblon. Ceci étant, je note tout de même le caractère malté, caramel suivi d’une certaine douceur. Mais le profil général reste plus centré sur le houblon avec ici un côté tropical de mangue voire papaye. Le tout procure un fini houblonné huileux et résineux en fin de bouche et ce collant sucré aux lèvres typique des barley. A voir comment cela peu évoluer et les houblons s’atténuer.
