3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. hazy yellow with small to medium head.
NOSE : citrus and herbal aromas are strong. Vanilla tart and some other delicate lactic nuances. Apple, green tea. The aroma of this beer could be a nice fresh perfume.
SIP : very pleasant body. Creamy with moderate carbonation. Low to medium thick. It is sweet tart and candy like flavor in the start. It gets dryer with herbal notes of green tea, hay and lemon zest. Hop aromas are rich and develop moderate yet well present bitterness. Well balanced. The finish is bitter and zesty with dry feeling on the tongue.
OVERALL well hopped and have a great body. Fruity and herbal with delicious malt sweetness but not too much. This beer is easy to drink and I must say I enjoy it a lot. Nice discovery.
