330ml bottle picked up from the fridge at ‘t Antwaerps Bierhuiske and shared with Finn at the hotel room. Pours a huge, rocky white head with fine retention and rings of lace. Hazy golden body. Grass hoppy nose with a spicy touch. Fruit hoppy taste together with caramel malts. Bittersweet end. Drinks quite well (Antwerpen, 29.04.2011).

lobs_ols (155) - LATVIA - DEC 3, 2014
Transparent gold, medium white head. Light continental hop and trappist yeast on the nose. Intensely bitter taste, with notes of caramel and cellar. Finishes bitter and a bit dry. Not my cup of tea. Because it’s beer.

Flesje 33cl,heldere gele kleur, een dikke schuimkraag die snel inzakt. Ruikt naar graan en hooi. In begin een licht zoetige smaak die overgaat in een licht hoppige, bittere, nasmaak. Een soepel, makkelijk drinkbaar biertje.

33cl flesje bij De Gouverneur, Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 8% Uitgeschonken in origineel Buffalo glas Uiterlijk: goudkleurig met dikke witte schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: ruikt een beetje naar wiet, erg bitter zoals de naam al aangeeft, hoppig Conclusie: geen slecht bier, voor mijn smaak te straf qua bitterheid ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Typical Belgian. Good quality brew but not very exciting. Very drinkable though. Clear yellow with nice white head and prickly carbonation. Flavor starts a bit sweet with some tartness and goes to a long mildly bitter aftertaste. There is some citrus, yeast, licorice and malts in the flavor. Enjoyed it.
