Belgian Beer no.221: Jan de Lichte

A new beer/ brewery stand. Again, no idea before Zythos of the existence of these beers. The brewery? De Glazen Toren. The first beer tried? Jan de Lichte. The name gives away the beer (a little): a light beer, slightly hazy and with hints of sparkle. The beer is a 7% fairly citric beer, with a slight bitterness to it. I liked it. But not over the top.

Trivia: Jan de Lichter was the 'boss' of a famous robbers gang, end of the 18thC. He was killed at 23.
