bottle at bierhuyske
pours clear blonde
good white head
bit hops in the smell
taste is indeed bitter ( and sharp ) . not realy floral or aromatic, but i do get the hoppy aspect in the bitterness. good carbo . perhaps could use more aromatic aspects to go along with the bitterness, but than the name would obviously be rediculous . so hey, its good for what its suposed to be .

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Moderate grain for the malt, herbs and faint grapefruit for the hops, light basement for the yeast, with green apple and wood in the background. Head is small, frothy, white with a spot or two of lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy light amber. Flavor starts moderately to heavily acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, dry with a fizzy carbonation and a dry finish. Kind of bland overall, but plenty of bitterness in this Belgian String Ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Giet in met een wel erg grote schuimkraag, helder blond van kleur. Sparkelend.(iets teveel?) Gist in de neus, fruitige toets. Drinkt, zoals de naam suggereert, bitter weg. Zacht van afdronk, smaak vooral van voor in de mond. Goeie combinatie van bitterheid met fruitige toets. Mooie balans.
