3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Has a clear amber colour with a very frothy light beige head. A lot of dried fruit in the aroma with with plums and dades. Pretty much wood, and leather as well, and some spices, nearly peppery. More wood and dried fruits in the flavour with also some chocolate, and with a hint of alcohol. Feels a bit belgian. Soft and a bit sparkly mouthfeel, and a medium woodish bitterness that lasts. An okay biere de garde but maybe more on the bitter side.

Al naso è piena con decisi sentori maltati e caramellati. In bocca è di corpo pieno, caramello, tostata, maltata è un finale appena alcolico.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330mL from Cave a Bulles. I usually don’t like these Page 24 beers but ryan is so obsessed with them I’ll have to give these another shot. Pours clear reddish amber with a towering yellow head with sheen top. Nice retention. Malty raisin and oatmeal nose with decent citrus hops. Taste is tangy and almost metallic with oatmeal and mineral water. Earthy grain and mild oatmeal but still with little body to match the malt forwardness.
Tangy and coppery. Webby lace. After decanting and warming it
gains some nice rustic cinnamon oatmeal. Fuller body. Very nice.
Excellent malty showcase with mild raisin and butter grainy bread
crust. Rustic farmy grain feel with full on malt showcase. Quite nice.
Takes a lot of patience to enjoy. No off character. Any trace metallic eliminated with decanting and warming. Gains that elusive thick and oily correct "malt extraction" excellence. Very nice though tempermental and giving poor first impressions. Great for style. Pain in the ass to dissect.
