Bottle @ Felthaus/Søren Belgian tasting.
Pours golden yellow with a nice, staying, frothy, white head. Aroma has berries - mostly cranberries - some malts and sweet brewing cereal. There is some oranges and light tartness as well. Fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, light yeast, some brewing cereal. Very nice beer, though it is a bit too sweet and malt-centric.
