Rastacouere (6129) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2007
Cask. Hazy light golden, lasting white cover. Very aromatic ale with plenty of zesty, limey tones. Intensely hoppy. A bit cheesy in the backing yeastiness. Really pointy, sharp hops are the turning point of the drinker’s focus and they biscuity malts offer nothing more than a platform for them to shine on. Addictive.
