2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Blonde session beer made for the Livinusfeesten of Sint-Lievens-Esse of 2007, which take place every 50 years (the one but last time they took place, Van Den Bossche created their Pater Lieven Bruin for the occasion, by the way). Pale malts, restrained fruity yeastiness and limited hop bitterness in the finish, but very drinkable; apparently intended as a top-fermented counterpart of pale lager.
