COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Le brun cuivré éclatant de sa robe est le préambule d’un univers de douceur et de rondeur. Le nez malté, légèrement fruité, concorde parfaitement avec un goût orienté vers des saveurs « caramel ». Soutenue à tous niveaux, elle reste très équilibrée. Une très légère note de torréfaction nous surprend toutefois en fin de bouche. Première bière produite par la brasserie, sa rondeur rappelle le plaisir et nous invite à passer un moment simple de dégustation.

humlelala (1114) - DENMARK - MAY 16, 2015
(33 cl bottle from Carrefour Express in Galeries Ravenstein; BBD: November 2016) Pours a cloudy amber with two finger, tan head. Good retention and lace. Aroma has notes of toffee and smoke with a doughy hint. Oily texture, medium carbonaion, medium body with a, astringent wooden driness in the finish. Flavour has aroma notes and little sweetness. Doesn’t seem entirely harmonic to my taste.

Scopey (9063) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Draught wat Moeder SG. It pours clear deep amber/brown with a decent off-white head. The nose is sweet, doughy, fruit cake, dried fruits, candy, cereal and toasty grain. The taste is bitter-sweet, doughy, brown bread, muffin, musty, toasty brown sugar, candy, booze and wood with a pretty dry finish. Medium+ body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Not overly drinkable. OK.

Vignale (2543) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-Biere. Skummar lätt ur flaskan, murrig brun färg, mycket disig. Söt maltig doft med mycket bakjäst. Känns inte riktigt utjäst, söta murrig smaker av degspad och karamell. Bakom det finns en fin fruktighet med söta röda plommon och torkade aprikoser och på slutet en lätt beska. Stilmässigt kanske en belgisk amber, typ. Inte klockren men fruktigheten var trevlig.
