Thanks Habek for sharing! Not sure who got it for him. Amber-brown body with a medium sized white head. Sweet, heavy malty aroma, raisins, fresh, tomato juice (?), etc. Fresh seeming though slightly oxidized taste, dried apricots, nice. LIght hopiness, not much bitterness. Not too sweet too. Well balanced overall, not that thrilling but definitely a very nice beer. Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 9, 2015
