2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A colabrown beer with a big, creamy and beige head. Aroma of roastiness, citrusfruits, bread and some vegetables. Taste is mildly roasted, bready, rye and some citrusruits. Light+, not too light, smooth carbonation, quite nice to drink. This beer isn’t very convincing, quite bad aroma without any interesting nuancees in the taste, just the basic beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, slightly auburn. The head is surprising large, long-lasting and thick; the color of dark latte. Quite a beautiful beer. Aroma is surprisingly fruity, somewhat toffee-like, even slightly buttery. Fruit toffee comes to mind. Taste is a surprise after the aroma: Surprisingly roasty and very dry. Light fruitiness in the background as well as some pine. Palate is too light, a bit watery and very carbonated. A very surprising beer altogether.
