A warm, hazy gold. A firm and smooth malty palate has a slight herbal note, with bitter hops and citrus developing, offset by a gentle sugary touch. A creamy mouth-coating finish has herbal and flowery notes and a gentle bitterness, finishing dry, a testament to the Belgian brewing’s tentative rediscovery of the hop.
Dry hopped Hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of citrus fruits, yeast, tropical fruits, caramel, light spices and plenty of hops. Flavour is moderate fruity sweetness, hoppy. Finish is dry, yeasty and hoppy bitterness. Remarkable balanced, wonderful marriage of Belgian fruity/spicy and IPA hopbitterness. A true favourite.
