Parket (562) - Bruges, BELGIUM - JUL 19, 2009
bottle, nice yellow/orange colour and stable white head. Spicy and hoppy smell. Taste: also very nice hops like you could expect from the smell. A good and refreshing beer but nothing I’ve never drunk before.

Bottle, 33cl. Beautiful presentation of a dark yellow, hazy bear with a beautiful white medium head. The way the beer looks makes it clear it will be a hoppy, light bitter beer. The aroma is grassy, spicy and light grainy. The smell is grainy with... indeed: a hoppy and nicely light bitter aftertaste. In the background the taste is also light spicy. Not a bad beer at all, but I have the feeling I drunk this sort of beer already before. It makes me feel like a copy of the Taras Boulba.
