Benzai (6387) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle @ home shared by Thompson. Clear copper color, medium sized quickly diminishing white head that leaves fair lacing. Smell and taste malts, lightly iron, straw, a bit sweet-bitter. Average body, suitable carbonation. Decent exemple of a Speciale Belge, although that’s not a separate style on RB.
