750 mL bottle shared with BA brickstoredave and Miles at the Brick Store.
Poured into a small goblet the beer has a very Dubbel like appearance. Very cloudy and typical brown, I’m afraid that is not at all attractive.
Aroma has a LOT of herbal content. It reminded me a lot of the Cinzano Bianco dry vermouth that was so popular in the 1970’s. That drink has a number of herbs and spices listed as artemesia, gentian root, clove, and cinnamon mixed with notes of agrumes.
The beer has a very distinct herbal quality that is very clear. A clean edge to the herbs make this an easy drinker. Pleny of the usual Fantome funk.
This will not appeal to eveyone by any stretch of the imagination, in fact I’m not at all sure that it would ALWAYS appeal to me! It’s a mood beer in my book and is definitely going to be hit and miss on many fronts.
