3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml. bottle @ Apoterkergaarden, Grimstad. Nice brown color with amber highlights, nice little creamy head. Aromas of light fruits, caramel, and some sweet malts. Flavors of malt, caramel and some light grapes.
Good balance. Very drinkable. But not a belgian ale in my eyes, more of a brown ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Brasserie V - Pours copper with a foamy white head. A touch of tartness in the nose, nutty, with some fruit notes. Taste is very smooth, fruity, with some bready notes. Bold malt with a hint of spice and cherry. Bready finish, subtle yeast notes. A bit of mineral. A little too carbonated and pretty thin. Very interesting.
