robto (16) - Belas, PORTUGAL - SEP 23, 2014
33cl bottle form "Hennessy’s" pub in Lisbon. It pours a very clear light yellow color with a very long-lasting large white head. Aroma is of sweet yeast and little malty with some bananas. Taste is overall low sweet, tarty with some hints of malt, spices and it ends with a medium bitterness flavor and some alcohol warmth. It is highly carbonated with a medium body and a dry finish. A classic and quintessential Belgian ale.
