3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Large bottle bought in Paris in Dec. 2006, but as I couldn’t find any info about it or who made it, left un-posted. It says it contains rosehips (gratte-cul), also seems like it might have a bit of wheat in it.
Dark golden color, orange tint. Very cloudy, good head.
Aroma of coriander and other spices, decent malt with yeast. A bit of citrus as well.
Flavor is slightly sweet with a sour, citrus edge as well. Lots of coriander. I cannot taste the rosehips per se, although they might be adding the citrus flavor. High carbonation, medium body.
Finish is slightly sour, spicy, malty. Not a lot of hops, although the balance is altogether good. Like a good Belgian spiced ale. Very nice.
