Rich toffee nose, with golden raisins, ripe plums and just a touch of herbal hops. Beautiful, masterful display of malt. Taste is lightly sweet, just a touch of bitterness, herbal/floral hops, light caramel, bread and cracker, raisins, light pepper and dusty yeast. Tiny bit of roast on the finish. Well conditioned, gentle carbonation; soft silky body. Lovely stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy orange / amber with a small off-white head. The aroma has the biere de garde maltiness, but is considerably sweeter with an almost candy sugar like presence.& light nuttiness. Medium body that has biting carbonation. The taste is drier than the aroma with a papery aspect interwoven with the aroma traits along with some lemony sourness. The finish has a hint of peach. Okay beer.
