JorisPPattyn (7939) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2007
Good, whipped eggwhite head with a yellowish colour over metallic golden beer. Bit of ureum and a lot of sulphur... H²S... Fortunately this proves quite volatile, leaving an equally stunning nose of roasted chicken meat... I can nearly smell the heavy paper bag it came in. Taste gives an, again, sulphur tainted grassy flavour. At least the chicken’s wandered off... It is a peculiar taste. Pale malts present, finish is a bit citrussy. Quite refreshing, despite all remarks, very light body. Well... after some time it seems to revert to a (normal) beer. Still, it remained a bit unsettling.
