3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at GBBF ’13, 13/08/13.
Light black with a thin tan head that clears edgeward.
Nose is light pine, dark fruit, touch of Belgian yeast, sugars, hint of grapefruit.
Taste comprises earthy notes, orange pith, mineral notes, light roast, light hops.
Medium bodied, dry finish with light bitter notes.
Interesting brew - quite liked this - it seems to have very mixed reviews after just 4! Bitter/mild meets CDA - I’d happily revisit this number!
CDA non believers I blame !
