4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Pibar, Lausanne
Cloudy amber color with red shades; medium sized compact head. The style is there; this year the aroma has more bread and feety impression (along with the usual malt, wood, fruit, light acetone), sweetish. Good body structure; semi-sweet malt flavor, with medium-sharp acidity, and some acetone; good fruity level; solid and complex; it has more sediment than the previous years.
Excellent as usual; the aroma is more elegant than the flavor.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Large Format - Very rich red/brown color and very cloudy as well. Some yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Very complex flavors going on. Get hints of caramel and cherry. Only a mild tartness on this beer but that could be because of the age. I have had some of the other years and this is always a great beer.
