Triple hot but not enough bitter for me. Strong and difficult to drink. Amber copper. Raisin and citrus. Complexe mix of belgian sugars. Not so plaisant.

olio (6803) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2015
33 cl bottle. BBE 16.12.2017.
Pours clear golden color with a large soapy white head. Grassy hops and spruce on the nose, some orange peel, spices and herbal notes. Sweetish orange and lemon on the flavor, grass, some yeast and spice notes, subtle toffee at the end. Some alcohol comes through, strong carbonation, slightly metallic harsh aftertaste. Refreshing but not very balanced.

Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu tulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja hieman sameana, muhkealla kolmen sormen paksuisella vaahdolla päällystettynä. Tuoksu tuntuu hyvin yrttiseltä ja mausteiselta, jonkin verran sitrustakin on mukana. Todella erikoinen, eikä aivan miellyttävä kokonaisuus, alkoholikin tuntuu läpi. Maku on hyvin saippuaisen kukkainen, viljainen, yrttinen ja loppuun todella mausteinen sekä makea. Suutuntuma on melko tuhti, lämmittävä ja napakan humaloitu. Alkoholi tuntuu hieman joukossa. Melko erikoinen vahva belgi, vahvat maut löytyy, mutta täysin onnistunut kokonaisuus tässä ei ole. Hämmentävä tuttavuus.
