Green glass bottle (.33cl) with a classic pressure cap served into a La Chouffe tulip in Gouda, Holland. The green glass makes me suspect of the brewer's integrity, but I digress. Reviewed live. Thanks to Tim from Ghent for the gift.

A: One finger head of poor thickness, no cream, and poor retention. Colour is a nontransparent copper. Not so appealing.

Sm: Caramelized malt, some corn of all things, and some light floral notes. A moderate strength scent.

T: Two acts instead of three. A very brief beer. Notes are primarily floral, but caramelized malt and full, expressive barley are also present particularly on the climax, which is a bit closer to the finish than it ought to be - likely a consequence of the two act structure.

Mf: Smooth and wet; light and fairly thin. She's thick and coarse enough to support what relatively little flavour she has.

Dr: Fair price and very easy drinking. The quality is good, but limited. I'd have it again if the price were fair, but ye shouldn't jump through hoops to acquire a bottle. Give her a spin, but don't expect the world.
