3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Au Brasseur, Brussels. Pours a very bubbly copper-gold with a massive lasting fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet, hoppy and a bit vegetal (I get canned peas), also grassy and herbal. Flavour’s better and easy to drink, it’s grainy along with a decent amount of hops, though not as hoppy as they proclaim. Alcohol is well hidden, in fact I had no idea the abv was as high as it was. Average bodied. I found this just good, not great.
