bartlebier (3771) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2013
33cl Contreras family tasting. - Cultured Speciale belge, alive with hard working yeast. Caramel malts, good body, subservient earthy hops. Less easy to session than Palm or De Koninck, therefore with more to chew on and quite filling. One more convincing character concoction from Contreras.

Orange coloured beer, ok head. Smell of fruits with a herbal boost to it. The taste is sweet bitterness, slight dry earthy, fruity. Nothing to get excited.
