Notes / Commercial Description:
Colour and sight: pale blond, the fine and regular effervesce ensures a fine and stable head.

L- Small head, slight lacing around the glass. Pretty surprised by the head, honestly. Golden straw gold with a slight amberish color
S- Huge phenol notes with a following spicy aroma. This beer is extremely yeasty on the nose. Very real and honest on the nose.
T- Spice (coriander), yeasty bitterness, bready, slight apple and pear, slight bitterness. This is held together by a Very subdued flavor all together.
F- Medium bodied beer. Honestly a bit chewy.
O- Very good beer. Traditional to the Belgian standard, tasty, and heavy. Extremely rudimentary, it seems... In a good way.

Absolutely garbage brew, don't know how they've convinced plebs that this is actually decent.

Tastes like someone's old filthy underwear that's been baked under the Arizona sun for a week. Looks like Bud light and honestly I would prefer a macrobrew over this filth.

Save your money for something better. Much better brews out there.
