jmgreenuk (4334) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2014
Tap at The Huppel, Den Haag. Poured a clear straw colour with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is light yeast hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a yeast, big alcohol, malt, hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. No classic. Nothing to differentiate it from the other Belgian Strong Ales.
