Poured the 75cl best before the end of 2012 bottle into a tulip producing a magnificent white head. It has a beautiful golden color to it. Loads of lace cling down the glass.
A big punch of hops and some grassiness. Noticed the yeast aroma more so after the first glass.
It’s hoppy and fruity with some bitterness that works well. Some yeasty/bready notes are there as well making this thing just fantastic to drink.
Pretty darn smooth and enough carbonation to make it lively in your mouth.
If you can procure a fresh bottle in Belgium that might be the way to go. I wasn't as wowed by this bottle as I was over there, but there still isn't much of a fault in this thing even after months and months of sitting around in transport and the store shelf in a green bottle. Lots of sediment that rears its head after the first glass.
