ksiwzos (120) - GREECE - JUN 30, 2016
Saison like aroma with Citrusy and musty aroma with some botanical notes. Clear yellow to golden with medium to big white head that lasts and laces the glass beautifully. Light tart and medium to high hoppy taste. Finish is dry with spice notes and smooth bitterness. Not as bitter as expected but very nice brew... Light bodied, medium carbonation.

Bel colore biondo, torbido, poca schiuma. Bianca che sparisce presto. Al naso è una ottima ale, spezie, malto. Al palato ancora precisa, frizzantina, malto con un finale amarognolo. Note speziate, chiude secca. Ottima e gran Belgian ale.
