Very refreshing beer with citrus fruits, hay and a bit herbal. Medium sweet and mild bitter. Nice mouthfeel. Some copper/metal taste in the finish as a minor downside. Great everyday beer that beats any pilsener ;)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma of this beer in camoflage (the logo and look make you think of a heavy strong Belgian Ale, but it isn’t) has a sour-fruity taste and a rather light body. It’s quite mild and offers a creamy mouthfeel. Despite the three Belgian hop varieties that are used, this beer is not bitter. The hops play their role in the finish that is subtle but short. Overall light and a bit too weak (even as this was the intention).
Well, it’s not what you think… The brewers wanted to create a top fermented alternative to ordinary lagers but then with more character. That’s indeed what they achieved - but still I’d wished more character and it cannot even cope with good lagers.
