3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Darker amber, orangey hue, slight haze; yellowish-amber thick head, leaving lace. Honey and, very markedly, pineapple nose. Bit of (sweet) grapefruit and citruspeel, as well, very fruity. Taste is fruity and hoppy at the same time. Hops like a sack of drying hops at the end of the season. Much drier beer than the nose would suggest, seems pretty well attenuated. Can’t make out more than a slight perfume, concerning the honey & vanilla. Palate isn’t terribly exciting - the toll payed to the high attenuation? Medium bodied. I like this. Halve Maan and multibrewer Marc Knops are doing better and better.
