75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2014. Procured from ALBO. Hazy, lively orange with a solid white head. Nose is full of floral bitter hops, touch herbs, green noble mainland Europe hops, touch white bread yeast, quite enjoyable. Taste is rich, bitter floral hops, grass, touch honey, white bread, white pepper. Very easy to drink. Great balance, great profile. Really good stuff, total surprise for me, def. delivered more than I was expecting.

minutemat (1741) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2014
75cl bottle with my Belgian father-in-law in Eecke, France. I’ve always loved hommelbier so it was interesting how this was going to compare. First off, this definitely has a much lighter, floral taste compared to standard hommel with marked lemon / citrus notes and a lovely dry finish. Exceptional beer, as always.

Aroma is Poperingse hop, fruits and some floral notes. Flavour is dry yet full, caramel, some hop notes, but way more in the aroma.
