3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, BB 17/10/15, large sample. Slight hazy yellow to golden color with a huge rocky slight off-white head. Aroma has lots of spicy yeast notes, hint of banana, bit grassy hop, hint of citrus. Bit citrussy bitterness in taste, slight sweet. Quite high on carbonation. Feels like 80% belgian blonde beer with 20% belgian white. Quite refreshing, just the carbonation is a bit too high and makes you burp after just a couple of sips.
