golden brown colour make amazing geometric figures when you drink in a tumbler, thiny head that dissapear soon, but the liquid in the glass has a great body and adequate carbonation. Taste has a perfect balance between roasted malts, and hops the result a nice combination of caramel and gentile bitterness in the mouth, The end sensations in the tongue and palate uniques.

Bottle, 6.5%. Sweet, caramelly bonbon, hop aroma. Still, clear copper colour. Very small white head. The flavour has some teaish hop notes. There is a little sour bitterness, but nothing too bad. Thin mouthfeel. OK drinkability.

Cloudy dark golden beer. Large slowly diminishing 1cm head of white and lasting foam. Yeasty, estery, flowery and slightly citrusy aromas. Mildly toasted malts beginnings quickly switch toward flowery and lemony hops. Fair supporting body all through. Quite simple in its maltiness, not developing too much flavours (surprising feature for De Hemel!), but comfortable and smooth.
