CLear golden coloured body with a white head and a few bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of alcohol, apples, pears, paint and a bit more alcohol - strong. Light-bodied; Deep strong alcohol and pungent bitter tastes with some light yeast, a touch of herbs and grass and a little hop taste. Aftertaste bitter and strong with a touch of sweetness, a little malt and a lot of alcohol tastes. Overall, not such a great beer, but not absolutely horrible. A bit bitter and a little too strong for the style, but nice to sample anyways! I sampled this 33 cL stubby bottle purchased from La Bier Tempel in Bruxelles, Belgium on 02-January-2011 for €2,50, sampled at my hotel room in Amsterdam, the Netherlands on 03-January-2011.
