Batavi (334) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2016
Fles 33 cl. gekocht bij Vinotake in Waalwijk, uitgeschonken in een De Molen bierglas. Warme koperachtige kleur, troebel en met een medium hoge beige, gelige schuimkraag. Aroma’s van karamel, verschillende soorten gedroogd fruit en aardachtige tonen. Het smaakpallet is heel zoet, maar kundig gebalanceerd door zachte hopbitter notities. Bruine suiker en karamelmout, aangevuld met veel donker gedroogd fruit als vijgen, rozijnen, pruimen en dadels. De complexiteit gaat verder met tonen van vanille, kaneel, melkchocolade en aardachtige tonen. Een zijdezacht bier, met een zoet en romig mondgevoel, en een zachte carbonatie. The Oracle zit inderdaad tussen een Quadrupel, en een English Barley Wine in, complex, heel zoet, veel gedroogd fruit maar mooi gebalanceerd door de Europese hopsoorten. Dit was mijn eerste bier van White Pony, ik ben zeer benieuwd naar de andere bieren die ik heb staan vooral de BA versies. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hold da op en barley wine! Der er virkelig knald på alle tangenter, der er sødme, varme af alkohol og en fed tyk smag af blommer.
