Alengrin (2449) - BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
Summer beer with some wheat malts. Snow white, thinnish but stable head, colour clear golden blonde. Grassy hops in the nose as well as hints of yeast, banana and grapefruit. Light caramelly malt sweetness in the mouth, grainy, vague wheat sourishness, yeasty and dry with spicy citrus touch and hop bitter finish. Less creamy than usual in this style - unfortunately, I’d add - but still very enjoyable.
