Our bokbier for Easter; not too sweet, thereby producing a fine flavour. The flavour and aromas give a nicely balanced mix of fruit, coriander, yeast and hops. An enjoyable combination in which the bitter element gets an additional boost from the lightly roasted malt. The aftertaste is slightly sparkling, with a long-lasting, fresh, sweet flavour. An excellent beer for celebrating the arrival of spring!

Lore (1931) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 16, 2014
hazy dark orange colour, huge, though not too dense off-white head, which collapses within a few minutes; aroma of yeast, citruses, hints of caramel, earthy notes and hay; taste of yeast, minimal citrus, bread and caramel, sulphuric notes and spicy aftertaste; dry mouthfeel - really good belgian ale, I like it!
