COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mariage d’un houblon anglais et allemand, elle dégage un nez subtil, frais et bien houblonné. Sa robe blond-or délicate révèle son caractère simple et sobre. En bouche, la bière sèche et ronde à la fois, permet un équilibre gustatif qui la rend très accessible. Servie fraiche dans son verre tulipe, elle désaltère et laisse échapper du col le meilleur de son parfum.

Style : Bière blonde
Couleur : Blond or
Houblons : Brewers Gold, Pioneer
Température de service : 6-8°C
Verre : verre tulipe de la brasserie

(Bottle, Brasserie Lombard, Brussels, 22 Oct 2014) Dark golden colour, slightly hazy, with frothy off-white head, leaving traces of lacing. Fruity, malty nose with bread, grass, citrus and apricots. Malty, fruity taste with notes of bread, peaches, grainy malt and a grassy bitterness in a dry finish with a touch of lemon. Medium body, quite dry. Fresh and tasty. Nice one.

Thanks to Kasta for bringing this to When Continents Collide 2! Cloudy amber body. Small white head. Nose is lemon, yeast, spice and some alcohol. Taste is very witbier-like - citrusy, yeasty, with some wheat and spice. Decent finish. A little dry towards the end. Not too bad!
