so here’s the thing: I do not like caramel. it reminds of my antonia by del borgo, which I like, but the taste is more intense. lingering even. it’s a double but the sweetness is irritating. maybe better in winter!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330 ml. bottle sampled @ In De Wildeman during Carnivale Brettanomyces #4. Wow, this was expensive. Dark amber, little tanned head. Nose is big grapefruit, pine, big hop mixed with very chewy malts, caramel,… Taste is huge pine resin mixed bitter grapefruit peel, chewy lightly surpy malts, caramel, some sugar,… Quite bitter. Chewy malts. Quite a solid malt-forward DIPA, quite impressive for a non-beer country to the best of my knowledge.
