Pours hazy brown with a very little off white head that dissipates quickly. Smell is fruity, caramel, light pine. Taste is sweet, but has a big bitterness that gives way to more sweet. .The mouthfeel is crisp and clean, Light body and a long finish.

I appreciate experiment, but they don’t always work out well. This one was a bit too herbal and grassy. Bit like a herbal potion.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Poured a clear dark brown with a reddish hue and a bubbly broken light tan head. The aroma is of sweet cherries, yeast and a little spice. The flavour is moderate sweet, light bitter with a light malt yeast red berry fruit palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation. I have to say I’m a little disappointed. A little bland to be honest. It needs something to define it and it’s not there.

Sampled from tap. Hazy, deep amber to brown. Mid-sized blond head. Inviting herbal aroma from the gale added. Notes of caramel, hazelnuts and fruit.
Medium body, soft in the mouth. Taste is light caramel malts, some fruitiness, and some pleasant herbal/floral tones. Refined malty-sweet in a herbal ending. Exciting!

Draught @ Pikkulintu
Aroma has rosemary, peppery spices, herbal tones and some toffee. Flavour as lots of rosemary, some clove, other peppery spices, some sweet toffee notes and hints of caramel. Somewhat sticky palate. Too sweet, too spicy.
