UPDATED: JUL 4, 2012 26/VI/2012 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: X/14 (2012-659) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the beer!

Note: had this beer many times before, and always assumed I had already rated it. Silly me! :p Little cloudy blond beer, huge white creamy head, stable, pretty adhesive. Aroma: pretty floral, herbal, bit grassy, yeast touch. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: ripe summer fruits, bit sweet, candi sugar, bitter hops, citrus. Aftertaste: grassy hops, herbal, bit spicy, some oranges, sugary.
