Light hay coloured beer, transparent with lots of bubbles and a huge foamy head.
Hoppy citric, white pepper, coriander and subtle leather resin. Hints of sweetness, cherries, which contrasts nicely with the sourness.

Opzich is dit een mooi biertje. Drinkt me toch niet zo makkelijk weg omdat er een overload aan koolzuur in lijkt te zitten waardoor je bij elke slok een vol gevoel krijgt. Kwa smaak en bouquette een voldoende verder.

Bottle. Straw, hazy, thick white head with some lacing. Aroma mainly of herbs and spices with some hay but also solvent notes. Taste is rather sweet with some refreshing sourness and bitter pepper-like finish. For its abv really drinkable. A devilish trick, no wonder!

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
BBD 7/16. Clear very light amber pour (pale gold). Superb head, lacing and retention. Wonderful nose of spicy Belgian yeast, banana, sweet fruit (pear with hints of orange) and subtle biscuit. Light medium body, yet nice and slick. Heavily carbonated with rich effervescent rushes throughout the profile. The flavor profile is of normal intensity, complex and balanced. The 8.5% alcohol is perfectly hidden. It begins with the fruit flavors, then flows into a light biscuit sweetness. In the middle, an effervescent light hop bitterness emerges coupled with a light note of pepper. The finish is rather clean, somewhat dry and a light bitterness lingers a bit over a blend of the previous flavors while notes of clove come to the forefront. World Class and one of the highest scores I’ve ever given.
