COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Brewed from pale and caramel malts and heavily hopped with Hersbracker and Saaz hops, this is a beer for the connoisseur, who does not shy away from a robust hoppiness. Its full, smooth flavor makes it an ideal session beer.

EddyBeer1 (864) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 22, 2013
Blonde dorée trouble, effervescence légère, très peu de mousse. Tout ici est dans la longueur: les malts en entrée suivis par une amertume moyenne et quelques notes fruitées et épicées. Un bon petit plaisir...

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 24, 2013
33cl bottle. Pours a light amber color with a two finger white head with good retention. Aroma of light fruit, sweet malt and a hint of hops. Flavor of sweet light fruit and fruit esters, and light sweet malt. Finishes with light hop bitterness and ultimately fairly dry with lingering light fruit esters. An unusual flavor progression from sweet to dry. Medium bodied with a hint of creaminess from the carbonation.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2013 Mooie oranje kleur met volle en grote schuimkraag. Fruitige en iets zurige geur. Smaakt een beetje flauw. Zoete en iets chemische bubblegum smaakt.
