3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Moeder Lambic, Fontainas
Hazy dark amber color, with big creamy head. Very nice malt and hop aroma, toffee, toasty hop resins, biscuits; later, light feety yeast. The body is weak and the mouthfeel dry, with a very nice flavor of toffee, cookies and roasted nuts. The final is bitter and long, with some hop resins; possibly the bitterness is just too high. At this low ABV, pleasant.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2012 Bottle, at Patricks. A clear, amber beer with a small, off-white head. Lightly piney on the nose, some caramel and citrus. Rather weak, but pleasant. The flavour is quite similar, followed by a nice bitterness. Medium body, pleasant carbonation. Mostly bitter finish, with some caramel hints. A quite pleasant one, easy drinkable. 120823

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Utobeer. As a British ale drinker, this is really interesting and exciting. A best bitter strength beer made for quaffing, but in a suprisingly small bottle. Looks beautiful. Mahogany, lasting thick beige head. Spicy hop aroma, bit of ginger to go with the grapefruit. Yep. Just as I feared an unbalanced best bitter. You just can’t stick a load of floral and spicy hops over a beer without the malt backbone to keep it in balance. Yes the aroma is glorious, but it’s just got no middle and then sweet toffee and stinging harsh hop on finish. Where Thornbridge Lord Marples shows how to do this style of beer well, this doesn’t which is a great shame as it could be so much better. Yes the hops are fun. I mean really fun. But the rest just falls away and the finish is too metallic.

Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich caramel, toffee, malt, hops and fruits. Probably a bit old, since hops havefaded a bit.
