VoodooBear (49) - San Juan, - MAR 11, 2013
Presentation: Stubby 11.2 oz. brown bottle, served in an oversized wine glass. Appearance: Cloudy, pale gold color. Develops a two finger bright white head that goes down but remains all the way to the end. It leaves some great lacing. Smell: The scent is sweet, fruity, mainly banana. There’s some nice herbal and malt notes, as well as some yeast in the background. Taste: A fruit flavor is dominant. It has spice and herbal flavors that make for a very complex and appealing package. There’s alcohol and a tiny malt sweetness at the end, with some bitterness to balance everything out. Mouthfeel: It’s smooth, creamy and medium bodied. It has mildly high carbonation that’s not overwhelming but still present. Overall: Very drinkable and complex. It has a lot of flavors and scents, but also a simple sweetness, balanced perfectly by a hint of bitterness and an alcoholic character, that just make it a great beer.

Mousse légère et persistante sur une bière blonde un peu trouble. Belle amertume. Petit goût de citron pas désagréable.

Uma cerveja normal. Não chega a ser sensacional, mas também não é ruim. Tomei em Bruxelas. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
