330 ml. bottle. BBF 19/05/2017. Only lightly hazy golden, creamy white fizzy bubbles. Nose is oily lemon hops, with light mango, some apricot,… Nose is not very expressive, mellow fruit, pleasant, neat stuff. Taste is oily, light sweet, white great, mango, floral, bit lively, floral finish with light grass. There is some light powdery yeast. Pleasant easy to drink, could be a small touch more expressive but I am digging it right now as it is. Reminds me of the work of De La Senne, I suppose a bit of De Ranke as well as which is a more logical comparison I suppose. Neat modern style hoppy Belgian. This I like. This is hopefully the future & this is the first time that I hear of a Mistral hop.
