Happoa piisaa, keveä silti. Elonkorjuun makuinen syysolunen jota mielellään juo toistekin.

Really nice to be able to try this out of a bottle. Golden and light with a crisp aftertaste. Tried at In de Wildeman in 2014.

mikske79 (1244) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 6, 2014
Iets te flets en iets te weinig smaak voor mij, net als de meesten abdijbieren die voor de paters zelf zijn.
