COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Proud, headstrong, full of character. Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, gave all these attributes to the rebellious Ghent stroppendragers or noose-wearers. And what goes for the people of Ghent also goes for this strong blonde beer. Nose/aromas: Relatively complex nose with hints of fruit (banana, citrus fruits), herbs, yeast, honey and sweet malt. Flavour: Refreshing in the mouth, pleasant sweet malty attack followed by hints of herbs and yeast, medium-long finish with subtle, slightly bitter touch.

Pours clear, golden and sparkling with a frothy white head that leaves lacing. The aroma contains cereal, grass, citrus, herbs, lemon and yeast. Medium sweet and bitter and well balanced. Some dryness in the finish. Creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Refreshing. I like it.

The aroma is not too intense, with fruity and light caramel tones, floral notes on the background a little perfume. The taste rezkovat ascorbic acidity, a small sugar-malty sweetness, fruit tones, a little butterscotch. Bitterness noticeable, but monotonous, with characteristic perfume and alcohol profile. The aftertaste sweetness becomes cute caramel-irisochnye tone, but immediately falls off, leaving reach the same intensity with wood-sour fragrance bitterness on the background.

golden brown, rich fruity nose, full body and carbonation, esters make the beer seem stronger than it is but pairs well with rich lamb
