3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clody, orange with large white foam. smells a little like an Orval: Cellar, acidic vinegar, orange, lemon, cloves and fresh aroma-hops. Well balanced flavor: Light sweet malts meets bitter-orange-scented hops. Very dry, long and rather bitter aftertaste. Good Belgian IPA.

Taste: hops, sweet malts, fruity, pineapple. Aftertaste: very dry, long lasting hop flavour, somewhat medicinal in the back of the throat.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske: Orange uklar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er domineret af gær med en smule humle i. Tydelig belgisk i sit udtryk hvor fusionen imellem humle og gær ikke lykkes ordentligt. Smagen er igen domineret af gær med en god humlebitterhed men smagen bliver aldrig en enhed. Desværre.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 Aroma is sour, hoppy, brett. Nice head. Hazy appearance. Too much bitterness and stable in taste. Unbalanced! Sparkling palate. Fizzy! Overall okay, maybe too aggressive, but interesting.

Bottle. Golden color, white head, nice sour/hoppy aroma with a citrus base. Sip is slightly spicy, flowers, fruits and citrus - with a nice balance of hops throughout the entire arc. One of my more favorite Belgian "IPAs."

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy light beige color ale with super huge foamy white head with great retention and some excellent lacing. Aroma of dry hops with funky yeast and light barnyard notes is a lot more powerful then I had anticipated. Taste is super dry with loads of dry European hops and very funky yeast with light barnyard notes. Body is full with limited filtration and great carbonation. Very well brewed though maybe a tad too dry for everyday drinking.

Bottle, thanks Mes. Hazy gold looks with a large foamy white head. Yeasty, hoppy,citrus nose. Slightly spicy flavour with pale malts and more yeast. Dryish bitter finish.
