fiulijn (15310) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2012
Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels
Hazy amber color, with generous, compact head. The aroma presents some typical Belgian yeast spiciness, mild, and some delicate fruitiness. Correct body strength; the malt flavor is not impressive, but at least it’s a bit sweet and spicy; there is a trace of vegetables, and the bitterness is on an average level (or high for a Belgian beer). Correct brew.
