Vignale (3213) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2016
Flaska från Etre Gourmete. Gyllengul, medelhögt vitt skum, lite fint sediment men inget som stör. Storleken större än stillbildande xx Bitter från de Ranke. Så det där får väl liknas vid en Dubbel-IPA Belgique. Större kropp där alkoholen slår igenom lite, lite trippelstuk med säd, honung, lätta estrar skapar fin doft. Gräsig humle med lite beska örter men totalt en måttlig beska. Inte lika lyckad som xx Bitter. Blir lite tung och alkoholstinn. Men att vara sämre betyder inte att det är dåligt.
