2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is quite nice. Kind of a blend between fruity & boozy but pretty pleasant. It pours a dark copper with a slight bit of red. It has a rapidly disappearing head that winds up leaving some thin lacing. I just wish the taste was as interesting as the aroma & look is. It hints at being a Belgian up front but that taste quickly fades & leaves a lot to be desired. It finishes dry & flavorless. Not well balanced. A disappointment.

Bottle conditioned, 500ml from Culham Post Office, Culham, Oxon. Orange amber with white head. Initial, tart, fritiness, a touch of sourness, this develops into caramel sweetness with a nutty sideshow. A touch syrupy, there is a toffee note too. Never really gets dry or hoppy for me.
