Bottle. Gold with a dense blanket of white head. Yeasty, spicy and grassy aroma with some crackers and stone fruit. Dryish and more crackery than fruity with a moderately bitter and spicy finish. Refreshing.

Bottle at home. Slight hazy pale golden with fluffy white head. Dry grains, quite flowery, even some rose, light spicy yeast, berry jam, marmelade. Medium sweet and bitter. Under medium bodied with crisp dry finish and a lot of creamy carbonation. Better than I expected, lovely stuff.

Bouteille 33cl, BB 28/01/2023, bottled on 28/01/2021.
Dorée-blonde, col épais crémeux blanc.
Arôme au nez clairement sur des effluves belges, le nez reste orienté sur des grains concassés avec un léger parfum de houblons nobles et une pointe de levure. Je note un léger fruité et fleuri qui offre un parfum frais quasi printanier de jasmin et de haies en fleurs. Le tout est ponctué de suite par un résiduel céréales.
Palais est de suite marqué par son palais sec et crisp rafraîchissant. Rondeur de grains en fin de bouche, léger apport fleuri et une petite note de douceur grains-fruité d'esters avec une petite note finement poivrée.
