Bright yellow, a good amount of carbonation, big white head. A fruity aroma, mostly apples and some sourness. These fruits are more subtle in the flavor, instead a whole lot of alcohol, hops, sweetness, spice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at The Dovetail, London. Clear amber with a huge white head that does not seem to reduce in size at all. Great saaz hop aroma blending with coriander and spicy yeastiness. Sweet caramel flavours meet spicy hops and yeast to make a well-balanced beer with a dryish finish. Very fizzy. One of Van Steenberge’s best, no doubt.
