3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
25.4 oz bottle. Deep, but clear, amber brown with a smooth beige head. Nose is brown bread, wood and berries; slightly tart. Thick and chewy with a fermented fruit tang and airy heat. Taste is yeast, burnt maple, butterscotch and gooseberry adding the perfect touch of sour to balance the yeast and sticky sweetness. A massive fireside sipper and perhaps my favorite of the series.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Really enjoyed this Belgium, to me brings in what a Belgium should be, strong, smooth, the ABV does not come through and it full of flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013-01-29. Brown body with a modest beige head and lace. Aroma is sugary and alcoholic, the flavour is similar. Sweet sugary malt core, fruity and moderately alcoholic throughout. Average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Bit simple and the booze is prominent but it is enjoyable nonetheless. Bottle shared by mds

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. An interesting berry-tinged brown pour with a thin but blanketing top. The aroma is quite subtle, vaguely sweet and floral. This drinks with a artistically assembled blend of flavors .. there’s definitely a wild berry buzz as the forefront, but a wild, farmhouse funk clings to the final bit. Quite yummy.

25th January 2014
Bamberg Bash Day 2. Cafe Abseits tasting. Clear amber beer, little bubbly pale tan head. Palate is light and dry. Little alcohol dryness. Sweetish malt with a little caramel and a little spice. Not getting much gooseberry at all. Spicy dry finish. It’s okay but not one of Bruery’s better efforts.
