Mer lättdrucken än Evian mineralvatten säger dom. Nja det var kanske att ta i lite kan jag känna. Belgiska peppriga fenoliska dofter så det känns hela vägen ut i trappuppgången. Smakar blond och lite saison typ. Bra pris.

Ktwse (3631) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Pours hazy yellow amber with a finger of white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, light spices and honey. Hints of hay. Taste is mild sweet, some pepper and yeast, with lightly astringent finish. Light yet creamy body with soft to average carbonation. Very nice with Chimay cheese! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KyotoLefty (8848) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 8, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2013 Bottled at the Leiderkerke Beer Festival. Cloudy, glowing yellow with a fine, low head. Spicy, hoppy nose, oranges, leaves, lemon. Light, lemony flavor with bready malt backup, quite a bit of coriander when fresh. This is actually great. Hoppy and light but supremely tasty. Superb session beer. Great character. This one seemed extremely fresh and hoppy. the second one I had, maybe fresher, had a bit too much coriander.
