Tap@ De Klep. Gouden kleur, vaste dichte kraag die als een laagje op het bier blijft liggen. Weinig aroma, smaakt lichtfruitig, bitterzoet met een hint van iets wat me aan wcblokjes doet denken. Goed te drinken, niks speciaals.

Kraag is mooi, maar snel weg. Aroma is honing, iets metaals en hooi. Smaak is verfrissend, lente met bloemenhoning, ook eederom iets van metaal, vers kruid en een zweem van snoep. Drinkt makkelijk weg.

Prima bier van een hobby brouwer uit Loon op zand. Het bier drinkt makkelijk weg, maar mist wel wat unieks.

JulienHuxley (2515) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle from Jumbo. Clear pale gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is grainy, alcohol notes, quite boozy, not very belgian. Taste is quite bland, not much going on except for mellow alcohol warmth and a light grainy sweetness. Palate is med-full bodied, with light-med carbonation.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2014 Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Immediately releases a floral scent. Hops! Slight sweet, grass, malts, hoppy bitterness that lingers. Nice beer!

30cl bottle at home. Clear golden with a medium white head which disappeared pretty quickly. Medium body with light carbonation. Sweet with some bitter notes. Spices, fruits (citrus, peach, orange), herbs and warming alcohol. A decent brew.

I drank this one at Oude Jan in Delft. It is sweet, fruity flavor. I like it.
