77ships (7641) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2013
Just filling in the blanks here. 33 cl. bottle @ home procured from Delhaize. BBF 06/08/2016. Hazy golden, fading white head. Pretty sweet orange peel, slightly phenolic alcohol, slight bitter burning plastic and some esters. Taste is bitter esters, grass, light booze, grain spirit taste with raw grains, boozy orange peel, light candy sugar, boozy, banana, slight plastic, alcoholic overripe apricot, peaches marinated in vodka,… High carb. Hey this is actually better than I expected it to be. Solid brew aimed to the average beer lover who is bound to love it even more than I did.
