3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a large white head and a TON of sediment floating around - nice! Aroma of yeast, wheat, curacao, coriander seed and a bit of lemons. Light-bodied; Sharp malty flavour with a touch of yeast coupled with some citrus fruits, wheat and some sugars. Aftertaste, malty and yeastie with a bit of citrus roaming through. Overall, a decent beer - not amazing, but definitely nice to sample! I sampled this 500 mL bottle purchased from BioMarkt in Amsterdam, Holland on 27-December-2007, sampled at home in Washington on 27-January-2009.
