VoodooBear (46) - San Juan, - AUG 31, 2013
Presentation: 330mL brown bottle, served in an oversized wine glass. Appearance: Two finger, fluffy white head, with a cloudy, deep gold color. Smell: The stronger aromas are of malt, banana, coriander and a faint anise scent in the background. Taste: Very balanced sweet and sour taste. The more prominent notes are of malt, yeast, anise and clove. Mouthfeel: It’s very smooth and creamy. It goes down easily and has medium carbonation. Overall: Very well balanced, a great beer all around. It’s a very filling and satisfying. so not something you want to have two or three of. It’s a beer to sit down with for a while, enjoy the nuances in it and have a good time.

Nose is must, yeast, lemon, peach, soft sugars; beautiful. Taste is wonderful rounded, hops, leading to dough, peach, orange, sugars then a spicy coriander finish. The beer avoids over carbonation with a smooth pallet. An outstanding wit.

Blanche brumeux avec une grande mousse blanche stable. L’arôme de clous de girofle, zeste d’orange, blé et levure belge. Le goût est très similar. Doux en bouche et rafraîchissante.
