UPDATED: AUG 1, 2016 33cl bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck in Vichte. Deep dark brown color with a beige head. Smells of liquorice, orange peel, bit of mint, pine, roasty but not too heavy. Taste starts of sweet with pine and resinous flavors from the hop and ends with a balanced bitterness. Very fresh and hoppy with a bit of roastiness, just how I like them.
