Ressemble une swomp. Jen ai entendu parl en lisant un article sur le monsieur qui cueuille la myrte sauvage pour beaus et a mavais charm : malheureusement la bire ne mimpressionne pas si tout. Base sur une double de style belge, elle est plutt mince et peu goteuse. Locale et exprimental, recette revoir.

600 ml Bottle. Clean copper brown color and generous head. Herbal aromas, saison yeast with a hint of caramelised malts. Taste is quite Saison style with a touch of that special herb they put in, the sweet gale... ( have no clue what it is). The match with hops is quite interesting. This marriage is enjoyed mostly in the dry aftertaste! But a bit shy if you ask me. Ambitious one! keep it up!

Pours a deep copper with an average off-white head. Aroma has some fruit, caramel malt and light spices. Tastes of caramel malt, herbal notes, spices and a decent bitter finish. Medium body.

Im a big hop fan, but I liked this one! Unique twist on herbal beer, still carries decent bitterness, wild and herbal plant flavours add a uniqueness that a wild yeast would add to a sour. In the end it still tastes like a beer, but with some spicy herbal flavours you just cant put your finger on. Not overpowering.

Bire cuivre, rougetre, limpide, coiffe dune mousse crme fines bulles. Leffervescence surprend. Le nez offre un sacr bouquet, dabord difficile cartographier, puis, on dcle des pointes de miel, dherbes, de cassonade et de raisins. En bouche, la carbonatation drange par son excs. Lorsque le jeu se calme, on dcouvre des fruits rouges, un peu de caramel et une belle rondeur. Cest agrable.
