3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Urban Family. Pours a watery caramel brown. Aroma is sweet malts and just a hint of hops. Taste is rich and complex: oatmeal, toffee, dark chocolate, tangy pineapple hops, lightly roasted coffee. The rye shows itself on the back in the dry and hoppy finish. I can’t remember this much flavor from such a thin beer. I was expecting a Saison, so this was a surprising treat.

Thx! for sharing. Sampled draft @ De Molen during Borefts 2015. Day 1. Dark amber, mocha head on the sides. Nose is oily herbal hops, thick licorice, cough syrup. Taste is oily pine resin, hops, licorice, some Belgian qualities, nuts, zest, oily resin, dough. Oily leaves, malty body. Not entirely to my taste but interesting & oddly Belgian in an original way.
