’t IJ is a brewer that makes me be on guard when I have one of their beers. They have beers I love, and beers I hate, and for some reason I never really know wich one it was I (dis)liked. This one is a keeper though. A pretty good blond with a incredible fresh aroma and taste that makes it stand out of the crowd. A ’t IJ favorite of mine!
