Clear, slightly veiled, dark amber color with tons of activity. Gets cloudy as more yeast is poured. Thick foamy and frothy, a bit creamy, beige 3-4 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with good legs and lacing. Flavors of roasted grains dominant barley, clove, pears, caramel, mint, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and herbal hops. Soft and smooth medium body with a light crisp. Strong strength finish, lightly earthy and quite leafy, thick lingering bready malts on the tongue. Lots of sugars with high bitterness. As more yeast is poured you get more fruit effect of estery orange peels and grapefruits, kinda Belgian? Still feels more like a cross English IPA and spicy red ale, some autumn drinking qualities and halloween themed. The freshness is alright but effectively robust so it lacks accessibility. Though the flavors are well balanced still making this an enjoyable brew. I dig the complexity and interpretation. Overall very good quality craft.

LAck of taste. Light hops and traces of spices. I was expecting more for a 7ABV beer

Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a nice huge foamy head with excellent retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of fresh citrus notes is refreshing and quite powerful. Taste is also dominated by loads of citrus notes with some bitterness noticeable and a light spicy finish. Body is about average with good carbonation. Definitely impressed by this beer which makes me want to discover other beers form this brewer.

Muted citrus flavour though fresh bottle from Veux-Tu and brewed in last few weeks. Generous head. European ingredients. Very malted, and on the boring side though refreshing on a hot summer day. An IPA when you don't feel like the full force of an IPA.
