From a 75 cl bottle at The Sovereign in Georgetown. Pours a hazy gold with a huge off white head. Aroma of tropical fruits. Flavors of banana and coriander. Smooth, smooth, smooth, with a slight bitter finish.

Kirkas, kullankeltainen olut vaahtoaa runsaasti. Vaahto on kestv, pienikuplaista ja tihe jtten rusaan mrn tiivist tihe pitsi. Tuoksussa belgihiivaa, hedelm ja vehn. Maussa vehn ja kevyesti appelsiinimaista hedelm. Alkoholi tulee hieman lpi. Tytelinen suutuntuma, hiilihappoja varsin kevyesti. Ei niin raikas tai humaloitu kuin 8, mutta oikein toimiva nautiskeluolut. Edit. Lmmettyn ja hiivojen kanssa hedelmisyys nousee ylltten enemmn esiin ja alkoholi katoaa.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2016 Trade with BenBreeg. In Teku glass. Reading CSHTP6 Ch20 + playing Tomb Raider 2015. Foamy but doesnt affect feeling. Dry, with some sweetness and a remarkable herbal hoppyness. Improves as it warms up.

Perfect murky blond pour, long lasting dense head, gentle carbonation. A: very nicely balanced and refreshing aroma of lime, malts, pine note, yeasty saison note. Perfectly (dry) hopped, lovely. T: starts malty but fresh, hay note. Light boozy hairspray note, alcohol not as well hidden as the normal Achel Blond. Medium bitter development with peppery notes, lime, faintest marzipan note. Finish is fairly dry, fruity, banana.
