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.

yngwie (13113) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2008
Bottle, 75cl corked, shared by Brugmansia. When opened, the beer tried to escape the bottle slowly, and left a dark golden body with microfloaties and an off-white head of reasonable size but with little retention. Dusty, sour and lemony on the nose, but not in an unpleasant way. The flavor was dusty, sour and lemony too, with some spicyness and bitterness. Dry, sourish and slightly astringent in the mouth, finishing with some bitterness. Sure gone bad, but still drinkable in small amounts. (080823)

Maria (10124) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2008
TFODRBSG08 Courtesy of Brugmansia. It’s unclear, dark orange and the head is creamy. Both aroma and flavour has unpleasant notes of barnyard and sewer – this is clearly infected.
