A nice balanced BSA, but I found it a bit thin, especially for 9.5%. Would’ve welcomed a tad more carbonation. Not bad.

Hopverdju (206) - BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2016
Goudblond met wandklevend fijn wit schuim. Geur: mild, fruitig, anders redelijk gesloten. Smaak: licht bitterig, wat sinaasappel. Romig mondgevoel. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Niet slecht maar weinig uitgesproken.

Bozo_skeleton (855) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JAN 25, 2016
Blonde paille, grosse carbo, collet moyen persistant, belle dentelle. Aromes pain, fruits, amande, herbeuse. Mousse onctueuse, un peu verte, bonne amertume avec une longueur indeniable. Ronde, l’alcool ressort un poil trop.

Inoven (45) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2015
Flesje al enige tijd geleden gekocht. Deze kerstavond met familie gedronken. Geur is zeer hoppig. Goudgeel bier enigszins troebel. Stevig wit schuim. Fruitig en bitter in de smaak. Hop-smaak blijf lang in de mond hangen. Lekker bier om rustig van te genieten.

Very enjoyable beer, a little bit sweet, taste of hops is very distinct but subtle. Leaves great after taste. Great beer overall!
