77ships (5297) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2015
Sampled draft @ “Kaapse Brouwers 1st Anniversary Beer Festival”. Hazy orange, little white head. Nose is big thick, rustic & wild fresh raw onion & garlic hops,.. Yeast dominates as it tends to do in some of these hoppy Kernel beers but than again this one is one of slightly higher ABV ones + is very fresh still. Taste is bitter dry, wild garlic, onion, hay, rustic, orange peel, light tropical hops, faint yeasty in the back,… Creamy, lightly yeasty body. Very solid, very nice.
