3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Crizay for this beer. Pours clear orange/auburn with a small off-white head, dissipating to nothing over some time. Oddly clear looking (upon first glass) considering all the haze I saw in the bottle weeks ago. Guess the yeast settled. Aroma is sweet with honey, cinnemon, marmalade, orange-cake, and liquer. Tastes sweet as well with a lot of honey, brown sugar, slight sweet potato flavor, cinnemon, gingerbread, and orange-cake. Finishes sweet and warming, flavor doesn’t really evolve into anything on the finish, it’s just a weaker version of what you just tasted. Viscous on the palate, medium-full bodied, but this glass is lacking a creamy body that a style like this needs. Perhaps the second, more yeasty glass will add some of what this lacks. Still, this beer is in dire need of a substatial finish to help counter the sweet flavors. Reminds me of The Reverend. Could be really good....

A reddish brown, a head is small and blond. Aroma has fruitness, brittish orange marmelade some dry cake, fruit candies and wood. Sophisticated. Taste has richness of (dry-)cake, some orange in marmelade and fruit candies. Full bodied, low carbonation. Not a belgian style, but more like brittish. Sophisticated, strong and dried fruity.

@ Basunen 16-6-18: Rätt trevlig doft. Smaken är rätt het med tillbakadragna toner av jäst och kryddor med en aning gula frukter
