3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Open Baladin in Roma. Pours orange gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is Belgian with some harsh citrus. Med body. Flavor is Belgian yeast spice with some banana ester, other fruits and something citrusy. Thinking Earl Grey tea here - ignoring the tea part. It is quite smooth and very tasty. It finishes towards dry and bitter.
