Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 7th November 2016 and poured into a Chimay goblet glass.
Appearance: It poured a reddish brown colour with a one finger beige head that had good retention and settled down to a creamy puffy layer with good lacing.
Aroma: Light plum, banana and some metal mineral-ness.
Taste: Started pretty decent with plum, brown sugar, raisin, caramel and banana. But for some reason, the finish is a little watery.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.
Overall: Looks great, but the minerally aroma and the watery finish didn’t help the beer.
