Review and Tasting

Sampled on 24/03/2012


Slightly cloudy coppery amber with thin white head.


Malty caramel and mandarin orange zest with plump sultanas and boiled sweets.


Very malty, full bodied (Belgium triple-like) palate with apricot jam and stewed plums and woody dryness.


Malty, yeasty finish with nutmeg, bloody orange and grapple fruit zest.
