Bottle at Kerstbier Festival, Essen, Belgique, 18.12.10 This was my first hoppy beer of the day and it was a soft soapy hoppiness. Pouring light brown, soft carbonation, very interesting, quite pithy at times with grapefruit tingling the tastebuds. A7 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.5 Bart (2936) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 22, 2011
