3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2016 Sampled from 0.75 l bottle at RBBSG 2016 in Evergem. Hazy, orangeish amber with a white head. Sweetish, sourish, malty aroma of lots of white chocolate, some coffee, vanilla and a touch of peach. Sweetish, malty, quite sour taste of lots of white chocolate, coffee, hazelnut and vanilla, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, quite sour finish. Medium body, slightly effervescent and rather astringent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very nice!
