SylvainCFC (46) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2016
Ambre foncé, mousse abondante aspect de meringue. Présence de dépôts non-filtrés, bulage très fin. Arômes très houblonnés, terreux, floral, peu malté. Alcool peu présent, très bien balancé. Goût amer et doux léger. Corps moyen, texture huileuse, faible carbonatation et final long amer. Forte mais très buvable, complexe mais facile d’accès. Grande réussite.

33 cl. bb 27/05/16. Pours a lightly hazy amber topped by a sticky meringue of foam. Aroma is earthy toffee with mild citrus, resin and a hint of coffee. Flavors of sourish orange toffee, earthy cocoa, lemon dish soap, resin and peppery zest. Light-medium body has low-medium carbonation and a drinkable balance.

Beerheart65 (1372) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2016
Bit hazy amber, big light brown frothy head and good lacing, looks good. Fresh citrus and pine, like walking in a forest after rain. Caramel also. Tempting aroma. Soft round feel, medium to full, thick, long finish is nuanced with bitter citrus , caramel and flowery notes. Looks good, smells and tastes great, good balance, long enjoyable flavors. I really enjoyed this, great stuff!

Bawelt (492) - Lyon, FRANCE - FEB 14, 2016
Bonne ! Nez entre des agrumes douces et un fond tropical (mangue) : joli équilibre. En bouche, on a une attaque assez ronde, fruitée qui part vite sur une amertume nette sans être agressive. Finale plutôt sèche et portée sur les agrumes. Très agréable.
