330ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£4):
Slightly hazy, golden amber with a thumb-sized, foamy white head & the odd bubble showing. Retention is pretty good with it holding steady over the opening couple of minutes.
Citrus & hops, lots of spice on the nose with some bitterness & background fruits that includes orange, apple & pears with cloves in there too but the citrus & spice dominate.
Fruity with spice & citrus plus a mix of orange, tangerine & sugar that gives it a slightly sweet taste. Some bitterness soon follows with pineapple in there too & hints of alcohol/grain. Earthy hops round things off.
Medium bodied, fairly smooth with light grain & well carbonated with a slight fizz. The beer is dry, quite bitter & although some alcohol shows it is hidden well for the most part & proves quite easy to drink.
Another nice Belgian beer, fruity with plenty of citrus & pineapple the highlights. Easy to drink due to the fact that the alcohol hidden for the most part with only faint hints of it appearing in places; this one is a beer worth trying if you get the chance.
