3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Borefts 2012. Darker amber with a creamy off-white head. Smell is very heavy on spices, sharp, clean, almost coriander direction, tad caramel malts and some citrus US hops. Bitter spices, almost edging to some kind of herbal directions, clean sharp dominate the field for me, rather odd, clean sharp, not sure how to specify but perhaps non-processed coriander seeds directions, caramel malts & citrus hops as well + orange peel and pine. On the easier side body wise - bit off an odd one, there is some saison-esque nature to this but it is a bit off the beaten track that is for sure. I dig it for what it is, that is for sure.
