3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good yellow-beige head, over near-black beer. Herbal, melanoidin-rich, chocolate, bit of cypress. Walloon indeed. The herbs, fresh cypress arrive first in the taste, but go over in a very rich chocolate and liquorice brew. A little fruity sourness retronasal doesn’t spoil anything. Very carbonated, and pretty full-bodied brew. Slick, little bit of alcoholwarming. Pretty good brew. I cannot imagine it as a Saison, but as a dark Walloon ale, YES! Even when it’s Flemish brewed.
