8/VI/13 - on tap @ Struise Schooltje - BB: n/a (2013-538) Thanks to 77ships for sharing today’s beers!
Clear very red to red brown beer, creamy off-white dense head, pretty stable, non adhesive. Aroma: pretty sweet, sugary, molasses, caramel. MF: soft to no carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet malty start, caramel, some citrus, fruity, honey, little floral. Aftertaste: bit cheesy, candy, sweet soft hop bitterness, more honey. Very balanced for an 11% beer!
