3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
A dollop of honey swiftly moves into wheat, light wilderness and green hop bitterness in this engaging quencher.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the clear blond.
-Mouthfeel is dry and polished.
-Drinkability is through the roof.
-This is actually reminiscent of Trou du Diable beers mouthfeel-wise and also in the delicate complexity which resides in the flavor profile.
-Looking forward to having bottles of this at home!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2014 2014-01-21.Crisp yellow body with a large foamy white head. 3++ Aroma is yeasty and lightly flowery, reminds me of Unibroue but I can’t put my finger on why. Flavour is pleasant, pale malt, dry floral hops, good amount of bitterness, relatively bitter. Average bodied palate, good amount of carbonation. Not super complex but quite quaffable. Enjoyable.
