Julius pours a nice partly cloudy orange. A nice two inch white head that maintained itself well with lots of lace left behind. A surprise a that due to the beers higher carbonation. The aroma thats given off is fruity citrus with hints of malt. The taste is also of citrus, grain-like dry malt, backed up by the warmth of raw alcohol. A very smooth easy drink. Most likely one at a time for this is a strong yeasty ale. The mouth is left silky smooth at first then a very dry feel lingers on awhile.This one was picked up in England by a friend, another good Hoegaarden!!

Presentation: 33 cl slender brown Euro bottle with a drink before date on the back label.

Appearance: Hazy amber orange colour with a thick white lace that does not seem to waver at all. A lively carbonation pushes hard to the top and holds the lace tight.

Smell: Graininess, pear fruitiness and phenols in the nose and not much else.

Taste: Big crisp and biting carbonation with the medium body creates a viscous mouth feel. Lots of grainy and yeasty flavour throughout. Nearly bone dry the malt flavours are grainy with hints of husk. Maltiness is a bit one dimensional with a vague fruitiness tagging along. Alcohol is deceivingly mellow with faded fruity esters. Hop bitterness jumps in with a quick bite as well as a yeast bite. That same yeast bite has a hard time fading into the after taste and lingers for a good while within the dryness.

Notes: Not bad but certainly too yeasty, the bottle conditioning seems to have taken its toll on this dry brew. Worth a try but not something I’d go back to anytime soon.
