3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Oddbins at London Bridge. Golden beer bit of a haze from the yeast that I poured in. Thick white head. Herby quite sharp hoppy aroma. Touch of sherbert. Earthy nutty flavour to go with the hoppy blond beer. Yes a kind of brazil nut quality to it. Hops are fine. Very good bitterness on the finish. Good character. Yes a very decent blond. Not much Belgianness to it though I thought. I’d happily have this again for the hoppy finish.
