Winter drinking beer for me. Relates to old ales. Warm winter hug in a glass, again goes down well. Toffee, Molasses & caramel notes. Perfect for Christmas.

As a Belgian, tasting all the world best beers over here...after some years...

This one is a real good blond beer, although high in alcohol, you never taste the alcohol!
Very nice in the mouth, drinks easily, but not too easily, you feel body and and for me it's like liquid honey in the mouth... not meaning sweet, but just hints of honey...or something in that direction...

Really very good beer!
There is a crazy glass for it, google it!

Bottle. 8.4%. Best before 26.06.19. Pours a clear, deep golden, with a creamy, light tan head. Good lacing. Fruity, and a bit floral aroma with a yeast note. A bit heavy.

Dryish, fruity finish with a mild alcohol note/burn and a lingering hint of bitter liquorice, followed by a grassy note. Soft palate.

Fazla kokusu yok, alkol oranı yüksek olmasına karşın buğday tadından fazlası alınamıyor. Az asidik.
