3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a large frothy white head, nice retention. Typical Belgian Blond nose, not wholly unlike Hopus with it’s fresh floral hops. Supposedly just arrived at Kulminator, just released one week before I consumed it. Almost Tripel-ish in flavor, rather sweet and fruity with a moderate alcohol presence. Light floral hops, but only on the finish are they noticable. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation, lingering spice notes further remind me of a Tripel. Leans to the sweeter side overall. Nice beer, but not a great one.
