3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle from ølbutikken, dkk42. hazy yellow, huge bubbly offwhite head.
flowery, citrussy, perfumey hoppy aroma with hints of malts.the slightly strange yellow fruity flavor is probably from the belgian yeasts. pleasant aroma overall. flavor is yellow fruity, citrussy, bitter hoppy and flowery hoppy. A little bit strage flavor, like an overly hopped belgian ale, which it also is. Tasty though, and not too bittersweet or anything.
