COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

sebletitje (7156) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2015
Rare Barrel tasting @ Malt Attacks, Brussels, thanks Pierre for sharing the bottles. 75cl. De couleur dorée tirant sur la paille, col fin blanc. Arôme est boisé sur des notes de chêne assez modérée, rétro offre une palette de levures sauvages avec un brett assez dominant. Pointe fruitée rappelant le pêche. Palais est malté tirant sur la drêche, note acidulée vers le citronné, pêche et groseille blanche. Ici, le côté spontanée et fermenté tranche avec ce rappel de brett tellement populaire côté américain.
