corkyrory66 (701) - BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2014
Bière basée sur le modèle de l’IPA, mais en développant le genre avec de l’épeautre. Divers houblons aromatiques et un niveau abv de 6 %. Mon exemplaire de 75 cl a dépassé sa date d’une bonne année. Couleur doré mat, avec un voile de levure (forte saturation à l’ouverture de la capsule). Bulles fines en fontaine au centre. Mousse qui fait un nappage blanc cassé crémeux. Arômes de houblon très fin, malt pâle, fruits blancs, pointe d’agrumes. 1ère bouche très soyeuse avec une superbe entame sur malt et houblon, avec des agrumes et des houblons fleuris. Arrière-bouche bien pleine, et bien houblonnée aussi. 2ème à la texture exceptionnelle. Très grand équilibre. 3ème à la très grande harmonie des saveurs. Arrière-bouche douce, fraîche, fruitée. La longueur donne des nuances nouvelles de céréales et fruits blancs. Fabuleux ensemble, comme le Royal Orchestra. La levure est fine, précise, un peu fruitée. Superbe. L’alcool est parfait pour développer la finesse de cette bière, et très progressif. La finale : on affine, on distille, on élixire... CONCLUSION : une superbe bière qui demande une belle dégustation, tant elle a de choses à montrer. Vraiment un chef d’oeuvre de l’art brassicole.

Grzesiek79 (3304) - Radom, POLAND - DEC 6, 2013
Bardzo dobre i przyjemne piwo, nagrodzone zacna nagroda, bojna piana, lekko metny zloty kolor i w zapachu swieze amerykanskie chmiele. Troche jaj IPA lum moze bardziej APA. To przygotowali belgowie ale moze smialo konkurowac z piwami silnie aromatycznymi. Zero cukru i 100% swiezych roznych gatunkow chmieli oraz calkowicie naturalne belgijskie gornofermentacyjne Ale.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2014 It isn’t like real English IPA, because at first moment it has an taste of Belgian ale. However, it is a very good beer and a gift.

Butelka 33cl. OCZY : piwo jest jasne i prawie całkowicie klarowne. Ma jasny złoty kolor i sporą pianę o kolorze biało-szarym. NOS : mocne nuty typowych estrów dla drożdży belgijskich (zioła, morela i banan), pomarańcza, arbuz, woda kwiatowa, czerstwy chleb, gorzkie zioła. USTA : piwo jest mocno gazowane o kremowym uczuciu w ustach. Nie pieni się po przełknięciu. Nasycenie jest średnie. Bardzo przyjemne w ustach. Świetny balans to pierwsza uwaga, która mi się nasuwa. Czerstwy chleb z masłem i cukrem. Tak można by powiedzieć o nutach słodowych. Następnie zioła, zielona herbata i cytrusy to nuty gorzkie. Słodkość i gorzkość są wzorowo wyważone. Posmak to średnio gorzkie nuty ziołowe i metalowe. ODCZUCIA : jestem bardzo zaskoczony tym piwem. Już od dawna niego się przymierzałem i szkoda, bo byłby na pewno o wiele częściej na liście moich zakupów. Przyjemnie się go pije dzięki delikatnej puszystości i jest wystarczająco gorzki i orzeźwiający. Jeszcze nie jeden raz do niego wrócę tego lata. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 8/10

superspak (2832) - Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2014
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy bright gold color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon zest, orange peel, lime, pear, apple, apricot, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, lime, pear, apple, apricot, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, lime, pear, apple, apricot, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a great crisp malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is a damn nice Belgian pale ale. All around good complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt. and earthy hop flavors; and extremely smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2012
Hazy blond beer. Looking to the color I think also wheat is used in this one. Nice carbonation and full white head. Nice hoppy fruity, pinaple aroma. Taste: dry bitter beer with fruity hints (pineapple, citrus). Mild bitter aftertaste. A bit watery at the end. Medium bodied. I would put more caracter in the aftertaste but part from that a very good beer.

Countbeer (4726) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle: Medium fluffy and slow disappearing off white to ashy white head on top of a hazy almost murky yellow orange colored beer. Smell nice, soft, crisp and smooth hop notes, light citrus, pine, grapefruit, some herbs and nettle. Very nice. Tasty hop notes with light citrus tints, crispy, some grapefruit sweetness, fresh cut grass, light bitterness. Well balanced and a tasty surprise of the evening. Aftertate is hoppy, citrus, grass and some malts. Low to medium carbo, soft mouthfeel, good medium body and a light creamy texture. Very nice indeed!
