Bottle. Nose is dusty, herbal, hoppy, cloves, spice, grass, hey. Taste is herbal, yeast, sugar (but not overpowering) lemony, straw, grass, hint of funk, pears, hint of summer fruit, dry pithy orange bitter notes and marmalade in the finish. Mouthfeel is slick.
A very pleasing triple which has a lovely dry finish, nose was a little muted for me however. Stuu666 (15526) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 21, 2016

Classically styled with golden and yellow fruit malts. High alcohol warmth dominates at first, then a warming golden malt, then a lasting bitterness. But at the same time I love the taste! (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)
