3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared with Foffern. Clear amber body with a medium creamy off-white head. Aroma is star anis, sugary raisins, candi sugar, hints of caramel and syrup. Sweet, but barely acceptable. Taste is bitter herbal star anis tones up front, then licorice, candi sugars and hints of caramel. Despite the sweet flavors, it somehow retains a certain balance; perhaps due to the spice additions. Medium body and carbonation. Nice, but only if you’re a fan of anise flavors in beer.

Orange and hazy beer. Makes a big head but it disappears quickly. Aromas of pears, anise and Belgian yeast. A bit too sugary sweet and could use more bitter hops.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Huge lasting deep offwhite head. Clear amber body with strong
carbonation. Fruity herbal licorice aroma with coriander notes.
Dryish dense earthy herbal licorice taste with spicy coriander
notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish aftertaste is
like the main taste, maybe a bit more metal. Decent, but a bit
dense and harsh. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly.)
