Purchased at the UTOBEER stall, Borough Market. Coming in a short-neck 330ml brown bottle, bottle-conditioned, the beer label states that this is brewed for Pado Tavern in Tielt. BB Jan. 07, served chilled in a large Burgundy bulb wine glass.

A: dark reddish amber, slightly hazy; an off-white beer head around 1.5cm thick comes creamy and tight, slowly settling down to a rimmed head leaving some lacing. Gentle yet constant fizziness. Looking good.
S: a flow of beautifully-mixed fruit esters and fragrance prevails: pineapple, sweet orange-peel, sweet lemon… against a firm, thick, citric hop background (of Goldings?); vanilla-ish creamy malts and slightly caramely malts, candy-sugar, and a faintly assertive banana-ish yeastiness assume a deeper weight underneath. Overall quite complex~~
T: an interesting phenolic touch of yeastiness comes with the malt entry upfront, slightly coarse in texture but pleasant; joined force by subtle citrus-zest (but much milder than the nose), coriander-like spices, caramely malts, before being intersected by late-coming, dryish, chewy, lightly bitter hops in the long finish with a bit of chestnut-hint. Dry-hopping maybe? Nice ending touch, I must say, for it really deepens the structure of the whole flavour. And a soothingly warming undercurrent creeps down the throat…
M&D: softly carbonated, harmoniously balanced flavour profile, lighter in body than the 8.5%abv. might suggest… all in all, this is definitely something I’d go back to over and over again. Delicious, and complex enough.
