Pallleon (275) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 23, 2017
Balgán gondoltam, hogy ha belga, akkor minimum 7% az alkoholtartalma. Mindenesetre meglepetés volt, hogy csak 4,8%. Kellemes belga ivósör. Nem bántam meg a megvételét, de a társai azért komolyabbak.

33cl bottle. Fruits in the nose, also some grain, citrus and a bit banana. Poured misty golden, with a decent white foamy head. The head was not lasting. Taste has bread, grain, a bit banana again, coriander. Coriander comes back in the aftertaste.
