0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Rotten taste. Something reminding of french cheese, the wrong way. Very stiff taste. Awkward smell. Something goes wrong in your mouth. I couldn’t finish my 250ml. Missing some the sourness of wheat beer.
Bad beer made by good people.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft and bottles. Is the color of Hoegaarden, very pale milky canary yellow, but without a needed thick head. No lace either. The bland aroma has a minute hint of spice, tangerine, or peach. Is fluffy and lightly effervescent. The flavors re nice. The malt character is solid, and it’s pretty dry. So overall, it’s not bad.
