Poured into trappist.
Completely hazy with decent white head, receding slowly to some laces on a surface. Smell is delicate - spices, pale malts. Taste is a bit citrusy and spicy, pilsner malts, excellent ample hop bitterness, dry aftertaste. Owing to czech ingredients (malts & hops), the beer bears some czech characters, generously enriched with belgian yeasts fruitiness.

A - A very light yellow. 2 inch head, which retains very well. Some lacing. Very bubbly and lots of light coming through, but a bit cloudy.

S - Wheat, malt, and slight citrus notes.

T - A citrus taste is at the front, followed by a wheaty/malty taste. The finish is a very mild bitter aftertaste.

M - a thick mouth feel. Much thicker than it looks. Some burn from the carbonation and the alcohol, but not much.

O - A very good beer. The taste is very pleasant. Malty wheatiness, without much bitterness. The look is nothing special, and the same with the smell.
