3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark amber, rather clear. Small white head. Smell is unfresh malts. aged ( no BBD marked on the bottle, should be somewhere between 2013 and 2017. I asume it’s past the best by, than ? Taste is sweet, bit port, aged malts, bit metallic, mild aromaic, some chocolate notes, which is rather unique for an amber ale. Actually quite OK , with a very nice aftertaste. But this is clearly out of date and I assume the best by date was 2013 / 2014. Please, if you have the numbers ready to mark, on the label, than DO mark them !

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Robe ambrée, mousse crémeuse. Nez puissant sur des notes d’épices, de houblon, de levure, de sucre candi. Bouche à l’attaque ronde, épicée, légère, manquant un peu d’ampleur et de puissance par rapport aux autres bières.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Mi-orge Mi-houblon, Arlon. Pours hazy brown with stable white head. Aroma is malt, strong yeast, almost like bread dough; also earthy and a bit sweet. Taste is similar, but also smoky roast flavors, roots, not very bitter. Medium body, average carbonation, light bitter aftertaste. An ok beer, a bit too earthy for my taste. Did absolutely not go well with fish, not the beer’s fault however...

4/III/14 - 33cl bottle @ home -BB: no marking on the side to indicate a date (2014-245) Thanks to Dominique for the bottle!
Little cloudy dark orange beer, small creamy off-white to light beige head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: dried fruits, caramel, some chocolate, bit sweet. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sourish first, fruity, cherries, red berries, come caramel, dried cranberries. Aftertaste: some chocolate, caramel, sourish touch, toast, malty, bitter hops. Still good, but the lesser of the three Frangine beers I’ve had.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled draft @ Brassigaume 2013. Hazy amber with a white head. Nose is rye booze, caramel, watery with iron & sweet metals. Taste is boozy, bitter leaves, rye, dark bread, wild grains, syrupy, brown sugar, bitter herbs lingering in the finish. Syrupy body. Technically there is nothing wrong with this but it doesn’t work for me.
