sebletitje (6761) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2011
50cl bottle, courtesy of and shared with Gnoff. Ambrée, col beige. Arôme levure et cave avec un petit côté végétal d’asperge. Bizarre mais je n’ai pas trouvé un indice de cascade. En bouche, malté et grillée, pointe de levure avec un petit qcq chose de différent. Douce allant presque sur une stout dans le style anglais, léger note de malt sucré et léger fruit. Bouteille semble ętre mauvaise car je ne trouve pas lŕ le profile annoncé.

larsga (6240) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2012
Huge beige head keeps rising, eventually growing a foam hat out of the glass. Clear amber body with strong carbonation. Earthy dusty burnt caramel aroma with milky peas notes. Dry-sweet roasty wooden earthy taste with notes of burnt peas. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry earthy licorice and burnt caramel aftertaste with wooden milky notes. Unusual, vivid and clear, and highly drinkable, with lots of flavour. (0.5l bottle, Systembolaget Nordstan, Göteborg.)
