1/III/2012 1Pt. 0.9Fl. Oz. bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ Klaas’ place - BBE: 2015 (2012-175)
Clear ruby red beer, big creamy off-white to beige head, adhesive leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: sweet sugary malts, exotic fruits like lychee, pineapple, grapefruit, white grapes and pretty piny too. MF: good carbon, full body. Taste: fruity start, green apples, pineapple, lychee, bitter and floral, more piny. Aftertaste: piny (did it come as a surprise?), very bitter and dry ending. A little too bitter maybe? Good it wasn’t the first IPA of the evening.
