Pepper and nutmeg in the aroma. Thin, biscuit, nutmeg, even a bit grainy. Some bitterness. The flavor is a bit of a letoff compared to the fine aroma.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - Brown sugar, malt and some yeasty sourness. Cloudy amber with particles, foamy dissipating head. Very dry and dusty, an lack of body makes this just ok for me. Mild spices and a vanilla note does peek its head out.

750ml bottle shared courtesy of dick in some beer. Paul had to very slowly open this one over the sink. He mentioned that another Thiriez beer he had was a gusher too. Poured a deep and slightly hazy golden color with a small sized white head. Lots of small particles. Aromas of some spices, pine, citrus, and somewhat grainy. Tastes of citrus, lighter spices, citrus and light yeast. Thinner body.

750mL thanks to Travlr.Slow gusher. Large creamy, beige head atop deep reddish ruby, rust. Good lacing. Mega malty nose with brown sugar, black cherry, some celery, dill, wet hay. Taste is bitter, minerally, black cherry soda, rustic malt. A bit bland. Effervescent rather than thick and malty. No oatmeal richness wanted in style. Not too bad. In a way it tastes like diet black cherry soda mixed with malta non alcoholic beverage.
