Christian (11278) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2014
Hazy very dark brown with a small off-white head. Very inviting aroma of oak, brett, dried fruit, balsamic vinegar and spices. Dry and tart flavour with vinegar and dried fruit, spices, and a touch of ashy, hard roasted malt. The ashy part gets in the way, I guess I’d have preferred Saison Brune
