3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (HBF2013, Friday)
Pale, huge rocky white head. Lots going on in the aroma - sweet fruits and lighter esters. Slightly minerally in the mouth. Quite well attenuated. Fruity, but sub-par for Scheldebrouwerij. Soft grains, and lots of esters in the mouth, quite well balanced, just a shame about the mineralliness.
