Can (I think it was) shared in the car while hustling through Belgium back in March 2013. Pours clear yellow with a fine, white foam head. Big cereal and bread aroma with hints of straw. Medium sweet flavor with hefty doughy bread, some white sugar. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with notes of cereal, doughy biscuits, light alcohol, more white sugar. Simple but decent. A pretty classic biere de garde.
