tderoeck (5642) - Gent, - JUL 28, 2012
27/VII/2012 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 30/IV/13 - (2012-762)

Clear amber red beer, big yellow to beige creamy head, very stable, adhesive. Aroma: citrus, little metallic, grassy, some paint, touch of caramel sweetness, some overripe fruits. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: citric start, pretty fruity, grassy, bitter hops, some grapefruit, caramel and malty backbone. Aftertaste: some toast, caramel, bit grassy, some citrus. ESB? I’d say APA, but that’s just me... I’m suspecting American hops in this one...
