Thirsty_Tommy (7) - - NOV 27, 2015 does not count
Showcase an innovative interpretation of bitter, not violent and brutal as too often, but appears elegant and playful. We had it with aged soft cheeses and San Daniele ham... and was NIRVANA.

750ml crown-capped bottle with plastic-cork (!) come with a free screwed pin bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.

(P.S. Do not use that useless screw-pin that comes with the bottle, as you will have no chance to pull out that tough plastic cork. Use a proper cork screw for wine instead!)

Translucent light golden honey colour with a ring of dirt-like yeast sediments; Explosive four finger head and crumpety white foam which lasts for 3 minutes; Beautiful sticky lacing with active carbonation; Very fragrant aroma of full malt, with pineapples, vanilla, peaches, apricots, caramel, banana, honey, sugar, thick bread, strong Bel yeast, lemon and moderate grassy hops; Mid to light sweet taste of Pils malt, with caramel, grapefruits, strong molasses, strong Bel yeast, strong lemon, strong bitter hops and strong grass; Close to medium body. Slick and smooth palate; Mouth feel is solid Pilsener malt - wholesome, quite creamy and bready. Good caramel throughout, with long grapefruit and bitter hops to balance the strong molasses. Yeasty and lemony, more of a IPL and than Belgian Ale. Cool!... Hoppiness is fragrant pineapples, peaches, apricots, lemon and grass in nose; grapefruit, strong lemon and strong grass in taste; Bitterness is strong for a lasting, Close to high astringent sweet malty finish; Quite dry after taste. Smooth and very hoppy to mouth.

Comments: As Belgian Ale, this one is interesting as well as solid - good Pils malt base with fragrant Pineapple and caramel characters, and very strong grapefruit / citrus hoppiness. This is pricey stuff (US$15 apiece) and it would be nice to release a 330ml bottle for session instead. Still, a very solid Italian take on Belgian Blonde, with very hoppy twist. Worth the money!

Color arancio torbido. Luppolo e fiori al naso. Poco corpo e complessità. Al palato si rivela abbastanza banale.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Yoav. Hazy-cloudy blond with a white head. Fruity, pear and peach aroma. Sweet, fruity, cantaloupe taste. Soft bitterness, soft carbonation, fruity finish. Nice and refreshing.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Yoav. Hazy pale yellow. Aroma of cardboard, some fruitiness, yeast, spiciness. Sweetish and slightly tart flavor with fruitiness, yeast, spiciness, and a bitterish hops finish. Medium-bodied.

Sevenlee (1618) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2015
Pours a hazy orange colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, citrus, orange, a bit of yeast and hops. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a light hop finish. Not bad.

BrunoSanchez (189) - Fermo, ITALY - MAR 7, 2015
Belgian ale luppolata. Colore opalescente con schiuma bianca consistente. Al naso note erbacee e speziate. In bocca ben bilanciata tendente all’amaro molto piacevole. Il sapore riporta gli agrumi (pompelmo), spezie ed erba fresca. Finale pulito. Consigliata!!

pastymc (34) - Niscemi, ITALY - DEC 2, 2014
Birra di colore biondo chiaro, opaco con un bel cappello di schiuma consiste e piuttosto persistente. Agrumata e leggermente luppolata al naso. In bocca non sprigiona molti sapori, persistono gli agrumi, leggere note floreali e luppolate, ma quest’ultimo è poco presente in generale, a dispetto del nome che porta la birra. Carbonazione vivace e poco corpo. Apre discretamente ma si perde immediatamente. Poca struttura e carattere
