Pours gold into a tulip. Bright white head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Band aid aromas. Sweet grassy bread upfront turning to mild band aid in the lasting bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours orange tinged gold with a foamy/creamy off-white head. Floral over light caramel for aroma. Med + body. Frothy carb. Flavor is pretty hoppy - but mostly floral with some fruit. But at the end the bitter really attacked the sides of my tongue. Then it released me. Then it did it again. It’s far from NW bitter, but it’s got a lot of non-harsh hop bitter.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Leicht sauer, wässrig. Gefällt mir etwas besser als die Version mit deutschem Malz, das Bier wirkt ausbalancierter, das Bier an sich reifer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle directly from Masia Agullons. It pours a hazy golden-amber liquid with a small-medium bubbly head that lasts throughout the beer and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is very herbal and yeasty; quite complex: nice herbal and floral hops along with some mild sweet malts. A little citron is also there (lemon and orange). It tastes likewise, with a very herbal aftertaste and a dry finish. It has low sweetness, low sourness and a medium-high bitterness for an EPA. Carbonation is very soft, and it has a medium-full body. It makes a nice hoppy session beer. Very natural taste; nicely balanced brew.

28-APR-2011, bottle @terrasse in Barcelona, from La Cerveteca. Recommended by bartender
Pours hazy orange with big beige bubbles that coats the glass.
Really fruity nose with ripe apricots and orange peel.
Sweet taste with a hint of bitterness.
A little low on carbonation. Fine bitter, one of the best.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2011 Re-rate 11/28/11: Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks Rotem. Hazy golden-orange with a big white head. Aroma of fruits, yeast and floral and citric hops. Flavor starts sweetish, yeasty and fruity and continues drier and slightly spicy with some hops. Medium-bodied. Not bad. Started with 3.3, and by the time it warmed up a bit, I raised the score to 3.5. 7/4/7/3/14=3.5
[3/3/11] Draught at Moeder Lambic Fontainas in Brussels. Cloudy orange color with a medium white head. Aroma has some fruity yeast and floral hops. Flavor starts sweetish with some malt and fruity esters, continues bitter and hoppy with grassy and citric notes. Medium-bodied. Quite enjoyable. 7/3/7/3/14=3.4
