UPDATED: FEB 11, 2013 25cl bottle. Bottle was full to the brim, head smelled distinctly unpasteurised, though not alarmingly contaminated. Watery but pleasant mouthfeel, rather dry and not too malty for a Spéciale belge, nice modest citric hop taste and aftertaste. Light and refreshing, decent but shy alternative to Palm.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy yellow to orange colour with a quickly dissapearing head. Smells like sweaty feet, chinese food and other weird stuff. Tastes iron, sourish, bad, dry, rusty.. Not a good beer in my book.
