25/11/2010 - 75cl bottle @ horeca expo 2010
Cloudy light amber coloured beer, little white head. Aroma: malts, grasses, spices, some hops. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Soft creamy texture. Taste: first sweet malts, then some spices, hop bitters and fruits. Aftertaste: fruity, citrus fruits, hop dryness. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this beer.
Note: I also had another sample from a bottle with yellow label, with lots of American hops. It was even better, but alas no tasting notes. :(

Tasted this at a special tasting session at Café Buitenlust, Oirschot, given by Benito.
It’s quite an experience to drink this one. A colour i hadn’t seen before, very luxurious glasses. Doesn’t have to much of a smell except for something sweetish, honey like. Some people loved it, but to me it was a bit to watery and lacking in taste. Special one though.
