*Bottling update*

*Bottled 1st Aug ’10 with 60g of Light brown Sugar, tasting pretty good as a subtle Belgian.

*Tasted 5/9/10
Aroma:  Subtle Pear drops & Banana
Taste:  Spicy with more Pear Drops & some Sourness (possibly getting some of the Bobek & a bit of the Muscovardo in the finish)

Rather too easy drinking for a 7.5% 😉
