Gravity cask at In de Wildeman. Almost clear pale gold pour with thin but very lacy white head. Aroma is hoppy, very lemony citra notes, nice and fresh light grassy notes. Taste is quite bitter nice hop bite although I do get a hint of astringency. Palate is light, very dry with silky carbonation. Super nice easy drinking stuff.
