JulienHuxley (3016) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle. Hazy gold pour with thin creamy white head. Aroma is hoppy, spicy, grassy and woody hops, very vegetal (in a good way, not in a fermentation gone horribly wrong way of course). Taste is spicy, really woody hops, I got a lot of rooibos character, birch bark, pine needles, light fruitiness, light doughy/bready maltiness. Palate is light, dry, and refreshing. Very nice.
