Visual: Ivory-coloured head, creamy and fairly persistent. Golden-amber colour with an orange tinge. A robust beer, with fine bubbles.
Bouquet: Subtle but exotic nose, where spices (coriander and ginger) mix against a background of smooth and elegant notes of toasted malt. Finally, gentle hints of citrus peel come through, along with the herbiness of the hop flower.
Taste: On entry, it’s smooth but intense, with broad notes of spices against a background of ripe fruit (notably apricots) on the retronasal. The malts used give a weighty, unctuous mouthfeel, and the aftertaste is mellow and balanced.
Beer-steamed mussels, fresh parsley, black pepper and bell peppers (capsicums). Cod loin on a purée base with coriander oil. Roast poularde, caramelised with puréed dried fruit (dates, figs, raisins) and steamed potatoes.
Water, malted barley, wheat, hibiscus flower, ginger, lemon, hops and yeasts.
