Flaske på Kanal Bodega, etter Tannhäuser mai-13: først en flaske Chrisitanhavns pa, så denne. En perfekt avslutning på en stor kulturopplevelse i operaen. En overraskelse å finne så gode øl på et såpass snusket og bråkete sted. Kanskje det er bedre her på formiddagstid?

Bottle. Large bubbly off-white head that really lasted. Good display of lacework. Cloudy copper like color with tiny particles in flow. Aroma was a nice mix of fresh hoppy and classic Belgian Blond like notes. In particular peach, grassy, yeasty, mild spicy, hint of citrus, good mix of fruit and some underlying floral notes as well. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Good balance between the bitter and sweet flavor. Light dry and refreshing hoppy finish with an underlying sweet fruity feel. Very tasty and drinkable.

A Mes rate: Bottle at Chris O’s laid back Friday night tasting.
Cloudy pale blonde with a thin white head. Fruity and floral hoppy aroma that is very English in character. The flavour is more Belgian with some fairly clear yeast, more floral hops and a rather uneventful dry finish. So so at best.
