Rich gold/yellow. Slightly hoppy, grains, crisp and clean aroma. Slightly fruity, a little bitter, clean, crisp. Not much to it, but refreshing and high carbonation.

Poured from an 11.2 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance of this beer is a hazy golden yellow with a large white head. The aroma is full of yeast and malt with some grass and pepper thrown in. A very complex aroma. The flavor is full of malt and fruit a very intricate brew.

On tap at Poechenellekelder, Brussels.
Tarnished gold with lumps of trailing white head. 4.25
Lemony hops, touch of must, and aspirin. 4
Lemsip up front, tangerine, some bubblegum, herbs, harsh citrus hops, some apricot, and clovey phenols. 4
Estery apple sauce and chalky linger. 4
Just past light, round, clingy. 4

Not as clean as Taras - a bit yeasty. But well hoppy to go with that yeast character, almost with lots of mineral and dough. Heavy hitter at 5.8%, but complex enough to rep Brussels. 4.25
