4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lightly hazed tepid yellow appearance with the thinnest of surface foam. Straw and rotting grass lead the pungent aroma, which swells with saltiness, pear skins, and honeyed dough malts. Cobweb yeasts cloud things appropriately, white pepper and dried herbs gathering the noble hops.
Light, playful fruitiness in the flavor offers overripe banana and yellow apple, with prickly herbs and peppercorns. Continuously quiet in disposition, but always observably complex; it’s mostly dried floral tones and understated field and farm funk. Clean yeasts, crisp malts, elegant noble hops.
Soft and zesty texture. Crisp and buoyant, while doughy and dense. A great approximation of the best Belgian blonde ales; hoppy, snappy, minerallic. The glass was finished before I knew what happened.

All’inizio risulta evidente la parte maltata, con sentori di crosta di pane, poi un gradevole speziato, forse di pepe ed un finale amaro persistente
