3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Only available at Cafe ’t Keerpunt in Spijkerboor, Groningen. So it’s very obscure.
Very spritzy and wild, gushing beer. One bottle i drank at the bar itself was infected, not a good sign!...But the 6 bottles i bought were excellent. Very malty and fruity beer with some hints of spices. Medium mouthfeel and at only 5.5 abv. this is very nice and definitly sessionable. But as discribed in the commercial description, there is no roasted malt whatsoever, completely blond. Reminds me of a mix of saison, witbier and pilsener.
