UPDATED: NOV 19, 2012
2012-11-12, bottle at La Fine Mousse, Paris, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Hazy amber color, low carbonation. Better than the last time, but still, the aroma shows some apples (undesired), the flavor is malty and sweetish, with low bitterness and some fruity presence; delicate spices too.
Easy.

2010-01-11, tasting at Papsø’s, 6-3-5-2-11
Hazy amber color. Simple Ale, some sweetish caramel flavor, too much alcohol, some vegetables, light spices. Confused.
