DomPiwa (83) - FRANCE - SEP 4, 2016
Pours a golden amber with slight lacy head. Faint floral nose. Interesting, discrete, taste due to the unique mixture of chestnut flour and barley malt. A slightly bitter and enjoyable finish.

ozzatoadisback (85) - ITALY - AUG 22, 2016
Dense orange/light red colour, almost transparent. some carbonation visible. Big white head shows good retention and nice lacing. Aroma shows sweet malts (toffee, maybe caramel), a light chestnut touch and a sligh hint of spiciness. Taste is mostly sweet with a hint of bitterness in the finish: toffee, caramel, light spiciness. Chestnut? maybe a little. Light to medium body, average crispness, easy, bordering creamy but not quite getting there. Flawless, but not much worth notice

Dorée foncée, orangée, quasi limpide, fruité, notes que je suppose être de la châtaigne, douceur balancée sur une petite amertume. Bouteille 33cl trouvable en grande surface, Île-de-France, France, bue le 27/07/2016.
