fiulijn (14533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 23, 2010
Tasting at Papsø
Red-amber color; the head, initially large, disappears quickly. The aroma is not very positive: medical alcohol, Band-Aid, glue, nail polish, some Bretts and very light fruits and vinegar. Caramel flavor, dry, with light nail polish presence, alcohol. Unpleasant, I won’t drink one more sip.

Bottle at Chriso Gaylord tasting 09. Cloudy orange/brown colour, lasting beige head. Airfix glue aroma. And malt vinegar. Bit better in mouth, but pretty bad. What a difference from the Saison Athene which was stunning.
