Notes

I previously made a Westvleteren 12 Clone. This new modified version includes Cara Pale, some dark candi sugar in addition to syrup and ferments with wyeast 3787, looks more prommising.

New test the 12 August: this version is a bit more hop-fruity and feels a bit less mature. Exiting to see what happens in six months, or so.

Dec 2019. Great development, really getting tasty. Hops gradually integrates and caramel malt and candy syrup creates a nice tast. Interesting with a soft but yet dry combination.

May 2020. Turning out to be my best beer. Perfectly integrated complex taste. Malty, soft but dry taste. The hops remain in the background. Prefer it cold. Five stars.
