3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
For no reason in particular, my expectations were not high for this brew. I think when I see that something is "the most of such and such", I get nervous that it might be a marketing ploy. I was pleasantly surprised, however. It was somewhat light on the tongue, but not overwhelming I felt. The color was cloudy and there seemed to be many remnants of hops inside the brew. In the future I might try it again, though it wouldn’t be first choice because I think I enjoy the stronger flavored brews.
On a side note, I’d be interested to see how this one would be after it was laid down for a while. Via the label it looks like it can sit for about 5 years before you’d want to throw it overboard.

The king of Poperinge. Hoppy and yeasty. A stand alone beer which you need to have more than one of, in our celler.

Aroma is fresh hops, a light tartness and extremly floural. Taste is similar to orval but without the sourness.
