Bottle 330ml (BDLX)
Slightly hazy yellow coor, good cloudy white head, lace. Aroma has grass and Saison yeast. Suprisingly light body for this ABV. Fruity, some citrus, grass. Some sweet mango like fruityness too. Almost refreshing. Is this really 7,6%? Nice one, could be a bit more robust but I liked it.
