4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
ABV 5.2%. 33cl bottle @ home from De Molen, 2 moths expired. Hazy orange color, but lots of yeast from the bottom makes it copper, big off-white creamy fully lasting excellent lacing head. Nose tropical fruits and citrus, aroma fruits, grapefruit, floral, quinie, hops, light caramel, some herbs, more hops, tons of hops. Taste light to medium sweetness, heavy hoppy bitterness, slightly acidic and salty. Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation but awakens and grows in the mouth, long lasting very hoppy bitter finish. Very refreshing, delicious, quite IPA-ish, great one.
