Pours a light and hazy amber with a huge off-white head and fairly active carbonation. Sweet and bready on the nose with some bright citrus notes. Caramelly flavours with some breadiness, citrus (under-ripe mandarins oranges, lemon peel), green apple, mildly boozy. Very complex and balanced. Smooth yet peppy mouthfeel, almost creamy at times.

Overall, a top notch brew.

A nice very palatable beer,

A great shame that the beer is named after a very sad painful and potentially fatal condition.
The spokesman has stated that the name of the beer is to be funny an whimsical - shame the sufferers and connected family do not have that luxury.
Perhaps chocolate bars can now be rebranded as something equally funny and whimsical such as morbid obesity or cigarettes as lung cancer sticks
Shame on you Brouwerij Huyghe.
