3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle with "Heylissem" on the label. A rather unexciting style perhaps, but easy to drink and quite solid. Dark golden/orange pour, and mine was quite cloudy (in contrast to some other raters’ experience). Even some yeasty bits floating around. Abundant off-white head. Yeasty, malty mild apricot nose. More of the same with a bit of spice on the tongue. Surely won’t blow anyone away, but for a solid, low-alcohol everyday Belgian, this is your beer. Perhaps a good ’food beer.’
