Lets toast to Saint Livinus

Livinus

Saint Livinus (~ 580 – 12 November 657) was an apostle in Flanders and Brabant, venerated as a saint and martyr in the Saint Bavo Chapel, Ghent. His memorial day is the 12th of November.

I couldn't wait for his memorial day to drink a beer named after him, though. Or to be honest I didn't know beforehand that the beer is named after a saint. Anyway the next beer I drink I'll toast to him.

The 0,33 l bottle comes with a nicely designed Bauhaus style label. My expectations for this beer were therefore very high. I poured it into the glass and waited some time for the foam to dissolve. Head retention is strong in this one. The foam dissolved and the gold color showed up.

Its smell is very sweet and malty. On the other side we have a fruity flavor. All this combines with a mild sourness and some nice bitterness.

The body is a little weak, but still acceptable. It goes down easily; one after another.
