3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is a bit watery in the texture and there’s not a lot going on in the aroma’s and flavors. Acidic all the way, hardly no sweet or bitter. Sweet dried fruits and apple, orange and lemon. Average.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle thanks to Santa. 6%, Herfstbockbier, 2013 issue. Very dark color, almost opaque. Big beige rocky head with good retention and lacing. Aroma’s of sweet malts, red fruit, brown sugar. Additionally some roast retronasal. Flavor is moderate sweet, fruity (sweet & sour). Body is on the thin side, could have used a bit more. Flavor lingers, but no new flavors. OK example of the style. Good with rode kool & appel.
