Clear, light orange brown body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head and thick spotted lacing. Leafy grasses and iceberg salad mix flavour. Medium body has a mildly tart background. Quite nice on the patio, drinkable.

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2010
Tap @ In ’t Spinnekopke, Brussels. This is their "house beer", so naturally I had to try it. Pours a hazy, light orange body with a medium foamy white head. Aroma is extremely mild; it’s really hard to get anything out of this except hints of molasses and pale malts. Taste turns out to be much better and more decisive: plenty of grassy hops and lager maltiness, flanked by wit-like elements like citrus and hints of coriander. An original lager-wit hybrid, although the almost total lack of nose takes down the rating somewhat.
