Uma cerveja turva, opaca e de cor ambar, espuma de boa formacao e de cor beje.
Inicialmente o aroma remete uma old ale, com notas de madeira e alcool, porem em sua evolucao, os esteres sobrepoem isalando aromas frutais, malte tostado e caramelo. No paladar, existe uma inversao de planos, o doce assimilado pelo aroma nao esta tao presente, predominando o amargo persistente no after taste. Final seco e marcante.
Uma cerveja muito complexa e surpreendente.

Hazy dark amber color with beige head. Aroma has caramel malt, some sweet, overripe fruits and some floral yeast esters. Taste is more yeasty, it even has some light brett notes. Also the sweetness from the aroma does not translate to the taste, it's quite bitter and earthy, but it's still fruity overall. Medium body with medium to high effervescence. Overall it's a quite interesting beer.

Bottle from Brewers haven. very GOOD BUT PEDESTRIAN Belgian ale (not necessarily a bad thing). Darkish amber, wit light smoky nose and malty taste with a hint of spiciness.
