This beer is a very bitter beer and I am more of fan of the zinnebeer that the Brewery produces.

This is a very very bitter beer, could be excellent in the summer with a certain dish but I can not drink more than 2 pieces because of the bitterness. Quite unique this beer.

330 ml bottle Beergium - Pours hazy gold with a large white foamy head. Medium carbonation. Nice lacing. Smell - light bready, ripened fruits. Taste - Pilsen feel foretaste with a lingering bitter finish. Interesting but a little bit too bitter for my tastes.

A hoppy pale ale with moderate to high bitterness, but also great aroma from the hops. Malts are more withdrawn, and the beer doesn't come off as too sweet. A good, light, bitter Belgian pale ale.

Cloudy pale yellow. Skunky earthy hops, slighty malty. Bubbly and clean, very light but hop forward; earthy and oily hops are flavourful but also soft behind the clean crisp profile. Seems like an excellent summer hopped ale.
