3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Grass, Earl Grey tea and lemon.
Appearance: Slightly hazy golden body with a thin white head. Average carbonation. Very light lacing marks.
Taste: Lime, bitter (almost sour) green apple and a hint of white pepper in the finish.
Palate: Thin to medium body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Prickly carbonation.
Overall: Quite light for a Belgian Ale. I was hoping for a surprise with this beer but at best itís subtle, at worst itís just dull. The worst Mikkeller beer Iíve tried.
