thewolf (11113) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2010
Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Clear amber with a fine, medium, frothy, white head. Mild caramel aroma, some toasted notes, light earthy. Medium, but kinda prickly carbonation, fine mild creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good caramel as base, a hint of milky chocolate, a bit of piney and earthy hops. Red apples and a hint of cranberries. Mildly dry in the finish. Fine, elegant beer, even if doesn’t really break new ground.

Bottle: The aroma is fruit (plum and grape) and candi sugar. It pours a hazy, bordering on cloudy, amber with a small off-white head that fades to a thin film. The flavor has lots of grape and plum. There is some faint tartness in the background. The finish has some light caramel and the faintest hint of spice. Light-medium bodied with lively carbonation.

Rating #645, flaske fra Fish N’ Beer medbragt til Julebrygsmagning 2011 af Brianwillum

Jeg husker denne øl som den første til julebrygsmagningen der rent faktisk smagte behageligt. Vi taler om en uklar, nærmest tåget øl med et stort og holdbart skum. Duften var præget af syltede bær, lidt malt, citrus og abrikos. Dertil kommer en smag der er meget belgisk inspireret med noter af citrus og let bær, og selvfølgelig lidt træ der understreger øltypen. Middelmådig fylde.
