3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught@SBWF2013. Yellowish golden colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruity, wooden, floral and also has some mild toffee and sweet maltiness to it. Flavour is sweet malts, some fruity and floral notes along with a nice earthy/grassy bitterness towards the finish. Mild toffee too. Hides the abv rather well, and in fact I’ve written "rather thin palate"...

draft @ ACBF 2012 // head was beyond ridiculous (especially considering the ABV), Urbain was scraping it off with a spatula as he was pouring it from a pitcher // murky brown orange // smells very, very hoppy, peaches, apricots, mandarin, super concentrated pine resin,… very sweet also loads of sticky sugar (mainly candy) & fruity syrupiness,… // taste is very sweet at first (almost got a five squared flashback), fruit syrup, very fruity, candy sugar, nectar, honey, cloudberry jam,… then bam huge lasting unbalanced almost floral bitterness, huge dry pine hop finish (very, very piny – you get the 300+ IBU’s), booze, liqueur,… // syrupy body, low carb. // unbalanced, ridiculous, memorable & special
