Bottle at home from AH XL. Golden with white head. Sweet and dry malts, wheat, peach, floral note, citrus peels, some more tropical fruitiness. Light sweet and bitter. Medium body, fizzy carbonation. Dry, doughy, chalky feel. Nice fruity thirst quencher. Not too outspoken but yet very flavorful. I quite like this. Great summer/beach beer.

77ships (9359) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2017
355 ml. bottle from AH. 21022018. Golden, little white head, some bubbles rising. Nose is oily sweet, mandarin hop, low candy, very faint mineral. Taste is mildly sweet caramel, mineral, sparkling water, oily, some vegetable oil esp. in the finish, cotton oil,.... Bit thin, oily sparkling water body, bit mineral. Very far from exciting but seems to offer a better very mainstream alternative to pale lager.
