3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at La Serena in Laguna. Pours a clear orange with medium head. Aroma is definitely floral and sweet. Belgian notes abound. Taste is very fruity and sweet which I wasn’t fully expecting with the style. Not much malt comes into this and what does is very mild to finish. Loving this thing. Definitely not to style but I’m loving the floral and sweet notes to this. Completely caught me off guard here.
