3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery. Clear matte brown color, really frothy lacy foam but the whole is kind of pale dull. Really really bready aroma, multigrain bread, yeast, light metallic notes, toffee. Taste is grainy, husky, just a tiny bit astringent but enough to notice. Palate is med light bodied, fairly easy drinking. 4th place.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear light brown color, topped with a decent tan colored head. Retention is pretty decent too.
The aroma is surprisingly weak. Truthfully, all I could pick up were some malty notes.
The taste is quite neutral, but it develops a somewhat bittery feel.
Drinkable, enjoyable, but... a bit more taste perhaps.

Bottle: Thanks Douberd: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Medium sized creamy foamy head on top of a clear amber colored beer.
Aromas of malts, honey, herbs, sweets, some bread, some dried leaves, light toast, some caramel, light chalky and crispy corn and grains.
Flavours of herbs, bittters, malts, some wood tones, light caramel, some slight honey hints, bread, some plant bitters, some yeast, some toast, nuts and some dried leaves. Quite crispy actually!
Aftertaste is malty, herbal, bitter, bread, leaves, porridge and some wood.

Even though it passed BB 2 months ago, it’s still very tasty. I kind of like this and much better than many Alt beers out there.
