3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good, persistent yellowish, fine head; over hazy orange beer, with an olive shine. Mustard seed, greenery, fresh malt, some hops. Extremely good forward C-hoppy taste, backed with just the right amount of cakey malts. Very dry finish, if some fusels. Medium bodied, slick, near chewy. AH! This is one Alvinne’s best tries. Probably the most straightforward Belgian IPA.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2008 This afternoon at the brewery with the brewers self: Davy and Glenn, THX.
Tasted again @ home now.
Bottle, 33 cl.
Hazy dark golden to amber color, with great creamy, partition sticking head.
Aroma very fruity nose, good hops, bit yeast and little flowery. Medium to full body.
Taste going a bit to the Gaspar,
but there’s a great difference.
This restyled version is more bitterness
(good !) than the early Extra.
Dry bitterness, good in balance,
nice hops. Good bitterness finish.
Very good beer !
