Batavi (350) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2016
Fles 75 cl. gekocht bij Mitra Kaatsheuvel. Uitgeschonken in Westvleteren bokaal. Mahoniekleurig bruin bier, met een kleine lichtbeige schuimkraag die terugzakt tot een dunne laag, die wel constant blijft. Aroma’s van: karamel, toffee, sinaasappel, doet me enigszins denken aan Grand Marnier, en Belgische gist. Het smaakpallet is zoet, bitter en alcohol verwarmend, mooi gebalanceerd, een echt Belgisch winterbier. Het smaakpallet heeft tonen van karamel, lichte chocolade, bruine kandijsuiker, honing, sinaasappel, peer en licht houtig. Afdronk is warm alcoholisch, hopbitter, vrij hoge carbonatie, finish is kruidige gember. Dit bier is wederom een voorbeeld waarom België nog steeds een geweldig bierland is, mooi gebrouwen, goeie balans. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
