JorisPPattyn (8246) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2009
Very slight gushing to medium, light-greige head over beautiful carmosine-sepia beer; end of bottle cloudy. Very sweet, nutty, caramelly, dark malts nose, sweet dark bread, laurel. Banana, bubble gum, sweet bread, dark candi sugar. Slightly bitterish roasted malts in the finish, which appears rather thin. Warming up, coriander. Medium bodied at best, rather sweet-sticky MF; well-carbonated. Very ordinary, sweet & dark beer. As to the Vieille Villers link, read the ditto Trippel. Thanks to Ignace for the bottle watch!
