I like this one. Full body, first taste is malty, not sweet. Then followed by a little tart. The finale is herbal and bitter. Carbonation is strong. A rich taste in a relatively light beer, according Belgian norms at least.

330 ml bottle. Rated on 2.3.2013.
Pours a golden colour with a large, frothy, white head. Aroma is rather rich with honey, grass and sweet caramel. Flavour of rich sweet fruits, grassy hops, mellow spiciness and nutmeg. Medium bodied, high carbonation and a warming, fruity, bitter finish. Alcohol warms nicely. Great.

Hazy, lemony blond colour. Light foamy head. Taste is fresh with a light citrus flavour. Sadly a metallic taste come though in the finish.
