Boxereddy (354) - BELGIUM - JAN 28, 2016
Helder donker oranje bier met een grote romige witte schuimkraag. Aroma van mout, karamel, rozijnen, vruchten. Smaak is goed gebalanceerd tussen zoetheid en bitterheid. Mondgevoel is kleverig met middelgrote koolzuur. Afdronk is zoetig met bitterig eind.

75 cl Belle couleur orange-rouge-ambrée avec mousse abondante. Nez peu développé. Bouche complexe avec des notes de caramel et une bonne amertume. Toujours aussi bonne !

Rich nose, lots of different smells, lots of caramel. Beer tastes not as good as it smells. You don’t feel the alcohol percentage... love the kwak glas! Was made for people riding a chariot, so they could place their beer in the chariot, like a cup holder in a car these days.

Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is banana, belgian yeasts, toffee. Taste is the same but doesn’t deliver as much flavor as the aroma. Still very unique. Alcohol is well hidden.
