With each bottle I drink, Partizan just keep getting better and better.
This is a super little beer which, as its name suggests, looks and tastes rather red.
Pouring quite thickly into my glass and slouching there with its huge fluffy head, the smell is bread dough, pumpkin pie and spices on a brushed steel spoon.
I really like the gloopy, sticky toffee malt with its bread crusts and mixed peppercorn fruity heat.
The hops are red wood bark, a little pine resin and lots of garden border flowers, a leafy herbal greenness with a knife sharp edge.
Over all this the Belgian yeast pokes and prods with a clean metallic teeth-on-edge bite and leads to a finish that’s full of runny honey, rosewater and crunchy leaf litter.
