Aroma is a mixture of woody, dry Belgian fermentation and tropical hops. Slightly hazy gold under a lasting, white sheet. Flavour is quite bitter, with dry pineapple and other, faint tropical hops. Base malt backbone is muted. Medium light body, medium high carbonation, crisp. markextrae (4485) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2015
