Ordered this @ In De Wildeman yesterday, thinking I had already ticked it, which was actually a nice experience, sitting back, relaxed, no notebook or smartphone nearby, but upon checking at home I noticed I never did tick it (or bothered to?) so here we go (from memory). Light hazy golden colour with a nice dense white head with good retention. Aroma's of bready malts, doughy, mild hops. Flavour is malty sweetish with a mild bitter backbone. Light bodied. Moderate bitter finish. Lovely stuff, I'm ready to order it again, and then truly without having to worry about ticking....
