Amber coloured, fine sparkle and delicate and thick head. Pleasant mixture of the aroma of hops and a slight hint of liquorice. Pronounced bitterness, mellow and thirst-quenching.

twos_een_keun (28) - BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2015
Pours a beautiful clear amber beer. Head disappears quickly. Not a lot of aroma. A hint of hops and somewhat grassy. Tastes sweet at first, then malty and finally a subtle bitterness. A clean and refreshing ale. A great alternative to a lager.

Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is amber colored and pours a stable broken white head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is hoppy and fruity, with a hint of liquorice and some dark fruits. The taste is medium bodied, with light bitter hop notes and a sweetness of the liquorice in the background. The finish is dry, refreshing and light bitter.
