APPEARANCE / THE POUR:
Pours an opaque color with a medium brown 3 finger dense head that collapses at a moderate pace. Good Brussels lace on the sides of the glass as the head collapses. Medium rising meniscus.
AROMA / BOUQUET:
Saison funkiness meets toasted chocolate maltiness running through an herb garden. Pieces of toasted bread that were made with rosemary in them. (Think of an herbal marble rye)
Interesting grassy hoppyness mixed with dark baker’s chocolate flavor.
MOUTHFEEL / PALATE:
Hop dryness hits the back of the tongue. It’s a bit light bodied for my taste- this beer’s body will improve with further development over time. The finish is like artisanal, savory, herbal chocolate, with a good hop dryness.
FOOD PAIRING SUGGESTIONS:
Appetizers- raw milk, assertive flavored cheeses with sausages. Entrees- Beef or Lamb dishes, beef stews. Desserts- Serve with pieces of raw dark Belgian chocolate.
An interesting session beer, not for the novice. Good quality.
