Bottle 75 cl. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Fresh, herbal and spicy hop aroma. Medium body, a heavy yeastiness and dry and bitter hops. Ends quite bitter. But still: Belgian yeast and solid hops to me is not a good match. 271212

fiulijn (13532) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 28, 2013
Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Hazy deep blond color with creamy head. The aroma is delicate, hoppy, a bit spicy and fruity. Smooth mouthfeel, good malt flavor and very good, true Belgian yeast spicy character; strong bitterness, with resins and some hop fruitiness (bitter oranges).
A winner for elegance and harmony, with a bold character.
