Pours a hazy amber color with medium-low clarity. Off white head that forms lacing on the glass

Aroma is very malt forward, some slight oxidation, little to no hop presence, perhaps some slight mustyness

Sweet maltyness mainly from yeast strain, little hop character, some musty notes.

Medium-low carbonation, slight lingering bitterness from the hops but pleasant aftertaste.

Overall a very fine, traditional example of a hard to fine style.

750ml corked bottle. Poured into a tulip. I've now had 6 of these as many weekends and it's firming up as my go to regular because the balance of elements lends itself to a very enjoyable, slowly sipped amber.

Personally I like strong ambers and almost sweet tasting notes and this is the perfect blend for me.

Glad I found this beauty, we don't a lot of variety in this space in Australia. Dan Murphys has started stocking it alongside the regulars like La Chouffe and Chimay. It's replaced La Chouffe for me if presented the choice ( and I LOVE La Chouffe )

750 ml bottle served in a tulip glass.

A: Pour a clear amber color forming a medium bubbled white head. Medium retention and lots of lingering, spotty and molasses lacings left in the glass

S: Sweet grains, toffee and honey. Strong notes of roasted and caramel malts. Bit fruity. Good flowery and citrus hops notes

T: Sweet malts upfront with strong notes of caramel. Notes of toffee, caramel malts and flowery hops. Moderate bitterness. Good bittersweet balance

M: Medium body. Molasses. Medium carbonation. Caramel malts aftertaste

O: Good drinkability. Good beer

Bottle: a tall and very solid green 750mL bottle with a stylish label.

Appearance: pours a crystal clear, light orange-amber with champagne-style fine carbonation. A thick and creamy off-white head rises and lasts for quite a time. Slowly drops to a rocky cap. Looks great.

Aroma: a fairly complex nose of flora and earth, with a toasted malt and sweet honey,

Taste: some orchard fruits join the floral and earthen characteristics, with the toast and honey. Some spice behind also.

Mouth feel: the honey character becomes somewhat bitter on the finish, quite smooth too with spice and orchard fruit.

Overall: a very nicely put together beer - orchard fruits and spice, toasted malt and the honey is a very nice touch. Not a terrible price either, at AU$105 for 12 x 750mL.
