Four generations of the Moortgat family have brought together Pilsner malts, Bohemian hops, and a unique yeast strain to create this intense, aromatic and beguiling ale. This Belgian favourite is best enjoyed chilled (40 - 50 F) with discerning friends or good-looking strangers.

750mL bottle, poured into a highball glass. The aroma is peppery with a banana-like fruit note as well as a light bread. It pours a clear, pale hue with a white, doughy head that has great retention and lace. The taste is a blend of medium bitter with a complementary, slightly less, sweet tone. It’s oily slick with a foamy carbonation and a medium full body with flavors of bread, lemon, and a hint of pear. The finish is peppery and yeasty with a mild, and brief aftertaste that’s clean, light grass.

Blind geproefd. Troebel, heel wit. Dik schuim. Ruikt naar Hoegaarden, koriander dus. Smaakt wat voller dan een wit, maar wat is het dan?

Banana, wheat, yeast, lemon, orange, clove.

Yellow/gold beer with a large white head.

Refreshingly sweet, spicy finish. Drinks so easily and tastes almost like a weißen.

Ljusgul, smått dimmig med vit fin krona. Doftar kryddigt, lite citrus och banan. Smaken syrlig och frisk, något alkoholanstruken. Lite för mkt kolsyra. Bättre på fat?
