3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Great aroma, thatís for sure. Incredibly big head, foamy and sticky that stays for quite some time. The first part of the taste is nice and flowery, then it turns a little too bitter, grapefruit style. That remains just a little too long.
Bottle from De Bierkoning.
