served in 750 mL green bottle with painted label.
(probably the single most beautiful bottle art i've ever seen, btw.)
this is one artistic beer!
looks very similar to champagne when poured into the glass. super bright yellow color with the finest head i've ever seen. bubbles are very reminiscent of champagne, but they retain well.
smells of flowers, slight touch of hopes and spicey coriandar. alcohol is well hidden in the nose.
taste is really delicate. no overpowering alcoholic rush at all. a nice horsebarn yeastiness is evident, hinting at lambic-like flavors. spicy and hoppy notes came around and just blew me away. not a big, over-the-top beer, but insanely complex grassy, flowery and spicy notes. the body of this one is so light and effervescent that i really think it could almost stand up to champage as an aperitif. a very poetic drink. i highly highly highly recommend the karmeliet. if you want a super complex beer, this is the one.
