DeanF (1645) - Nunavut, CANADA - SEP 3, 2010
Big head, dark amber colour, goes well in a Belgian chalice. Aroma of malts, some witbier notes, some barley. Taste is a smooth mix of malts, a little caramel. Palate could be stronger. Good for drinking lots of.

Hazy amber body with an off-white rocky head. Aroma of fine malts, bit alcohol, ... very warming and complex, Moderately sweet, lightly bitter flavour. Very well balanced. Lovely.
