Paid 250 Hungarian Ft for a 330mL bottle in Budapest.
*Reviewed on 25.07.2005
The beer pours a cloudy white base, medium-large fluffy white head, excellent retention and a nice lacing along the glass. The beer has a very refreshing floral smell to it.
Key note on taste is the pleasant aftertaste, a pretty flavorful beer, noting slight hops and a mix of fruits, undistinguishable. The beer is light in the mouth, the floral notes with the head retention make it a pleasure. This is hands down the session Witbier, and maybe one of the best overall session beers on the market, this stuff is so refreshing.
Final Thought: Belgium just keeps on rocking it in my beer journal, their ales kick ass and this beer kicks some ass too, what a beer!
