How come that this only has 1 rating ?
Anyway > Bottle at Barely Legal Tasting Room .
Pours clear, darker golden . Good white head .
Smell is sweet, but mostly metallic . Very metallic . Foam is gone by the time I smelled it once ...
Too much carbonation !
Taste is sweet, grains , got that typical roastyness that Van Steenberge gets often . Underneath this all is a very , very beautifull , pure malty taste . as pure as actually eating malts . Too bad most of this taste gets ruined by the overcarbonisation, and a sharp , chemical bitterness .
the view, scent and taste make this a drainpour . The aftertaste makes you wanna drink more ...

33 cl. bottle sampled @ Stroopop. Thx! to Kogymo. Bright amber / orange with a solid white head. Nose is quite metallic, sweet honey, white bread, white bread but the metallic note really dominates. Taste is once again metal upfront, metallic honey, followed by basic white sugar sweet, herbal, basic sweet, some bitter esters,... Touch higher carb. Okay belgian blond.
