3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
pours amber yellow, pretty lacing and micro bubbles. Initially sharp hoppy bitterness, followed by a fragrant banana-honey and then malty middle, and then a dry finish at the top-back of the throat. Bitterness lingers. A creamy bittersweet smooth beer with medium body, medium complexity, medium depth, and medium length. Overall above average but not the flavours I’m looking for.

Bottle at the Rake thanks to Richard. Hazy gold lasting off white head. Yeasty aroma. Decent fullness in mouth. Some spice. A bit like a Belgian spicy blonde beer with elements of biere de garde.
