3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Hofje van Wijs, Amsterdam. Cloudy golden body covered by an inch thick frothy off-white head. Excellent lacing. Knowing that there is Japanese green tea in it I’m rminded of the aroma of a soft japanese cake that had this ingredient in it. Gooseberries, floral notes and marmelade too. Mouth is aromatic and mellow. Medium bodied, light doughy texture and quite smooth to drink.
