3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOTTLE 50 CL at 5,3%. Almost clear dark amber, off-white creamy head. Full-on sweet tropical fruit in the nose, mango, some piney freshness and a bit catty too. The malts are almost nowhere to be found, I think I can get some rotten fruit (and even alcohol) but I am not sure. The taste has light creamy malts, quite harsh and spicy catty hops, the finish is dry bitter with a wormwood like note too it (or is it the alcohol?). Nice creamy mouthfeel with a just a touch of hop tannins. Though it is a good beer as it is, it feel like a sub-par batch for The Kernel.
