mcberko (6020) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2014
On tap at Delirium Cafe, pours a clear pale blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out yeast, clove and floral notes. Flavour is fresh and vibrant, with lots of Belgian yeasty notes, a little banana and other citrusy esters, and floral notes. Deceptively light and drinkable, yet very flavourful. Very good.
