33cl @ bottle. Di certo non una birra estiva e qui l’errore di berla a fine luglio. L’alcol si sente molto, tanto dolce, di sicuro da ribere con temperature più basse.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Boldly bitter, but wears it well; like a more fruity (pear), more floral version of duvel.
- Nose: Fruit (pear? mango? lemon?) + flowers (buttercup?) = faintly marzipan?
- Body: Very small bubbles make their presence felt on tongue. Robust, bitter feel.
- Finish: A massive bitterness is working away at you, but the burn is ultimately a candied one.
