aroma is very blend in nose, some soft malts not much more... mouth is better, some malts, citrus, sugar/honey/caramel? some, spices, and murky malts... too sweet, not that good, but quite drinkable

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer has a beautiful amber color. The beer has a nice orange glow. The beer pours a nice rough white foam. A decent layer of foam remains on top of the beer, like it should. The beer is quite cloudy, like a unfiltered specialty should be. The beer has a nice aroma. There is a sweet aroma, a little fruity. I also smell almond, some zest from citrus fruits and a tiny fresh hop aroma. The almond aroma is quite strong in this beer. Nice. The taste is really great. There is a lot going on. I taste the almond again, which is nice. There also is a tiny bitter roast taste, and some fresh fruity hop notes. I also distinguish a nice alcohol flavor. The beer has a good balance between bitter and sweet, quite nice. Not s bad beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gushes dark amber with minimal head. Great lacing though. Slightly hazy. Yeasty and spicy aroma. Some sugars, slight metallic note. Bit dubbel-like to me. Taste is bitterish and pretty toasty with a nice sweetish and yeasty kick. Mild presence of caramels and a dryish, slightly hoppy and yeasty, almost creamy finish. On the thinner side of the palate, yet still creamy. Medium bodied and lively in terms of carbonation. Nice brew. Not astonishing, but certainly above average.
