3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cola colour, nice carbonation from the onset, modest foam head. Almost like a Cola (!). Aroma: typical Belgian double with a very pronounced metallic aroma. Prunes, dark fruits (raspberries, blackberries), also a very nice pear aroma. Fruity, as is to be expected from the Witkap line-up. The yeast adds an acidic touch, however. Taste: very mellow, with distinct grass and earth notes, chestnuts, some basement funk, slightest creamy touch. If I had to describe it: a bit like walking in an autumn forest. Development is mildly bitter, sweet, and faintly boozy. Aftertaste is neutral, with some brown sugar notes. Very gentle Double, nice!
