I didn’t put this in my beer cellar list, so I’m not sure when I got it. If I had, I’d have cracked a low-alcohol hoppy beer much sooner. Pour is just noticeably darker than the usual golden Belgian pale lager. Lots of floaty bits, I’m guessing hop bits rather than yeast? Aroma is nice, but it’s nice for a sweet Belgian pale, nit much trace of hop. But then there’s the taste. It is bitter as advertised, just the peppery noble hop bitterness. Backed by a dryly fermented malt that just gives this the nice feel of a beer. Something your Bud-drinking uncle might enjoy if he gets curious about those funny looking beers you have.

And malty aroma of grain and hints of citrus. Heavy malty taste with small notes of citrus. Quite heavy bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Does not it was bad but not good either. Mediocre beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

dexcansino (453) - Andalucía, SPAIN - SEP 12, 2014
Cerveza rubia con espuma blanca. Me esperaba más de esta cerveza. Tiene las notas complejas de las belgas pero me sabe demasiado a levadura. Pero la calidad del es bastante alta.
