fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2012
Bottle from Beer Planet, Bruxelles, batch 3930030511, bb 30-11-2014
Cloudy dark amber color with a generous head, very compact. Strange aroma, there is some phenol, manure, vegetables, cabbage, cheesy yeast. Full bodied, strong caramel flavor, there is just a moderate residual sweetness; the hop provides an interesting fruity flavor, Sevilla oranges, and mild resins; in the final the Belgian character appears, not prominent.
Pleasant, quite balanced, a bit sturdy.
