bonkiedeaap (644) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is light yellow with a nice white head and a lot of bubbles. A slight spicy and floral fragrance comes towards you. In addition, it has a fruity tone with the sweetness of cherry and caramel after some time. also discover a slight hint of coconut in the background. You can expect a distinctive flavor. Strong bitters using the mouth as a playground, where the carbon dioxide throws some extra oil on the fire. Furthermore, you can taste the fruitiness of green apple and a little citrus.The aftertaste is particularly dry. A slight bitterness is still just above, before it fades.
