There are notes of bread, flowers, herbs. lemon, orange, pepper and tropical fruits. The flavour is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately sour, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation, dry and very long finish with medium bitterness. Delicious, clean and hugely quaffable. One of the most consistent breweries in Belgium.
