3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty ok belgian pale ale. Aroma of citrus, grass, slightly tropical fruit, apricot and metalic smell (foam is suspiciously steady). A quite fizzy drink, bitter finish, but the citrussy aroma could be even more upfront. Quite ok, but not in my top 10

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOTTLE 33 CL. Hazy bright golden, huge white head. Delicate pale honey malts in the nose, along with some fruit and earthy hops with hints of garlic. The taste is similar, refreshing and easy drinking: honey malts, fruity, string herbal bitterness, which feels kept under controls by the residual sugars. Well done.

Aroma was nice, but too discreet.
Taste is good, with a hint of hop and some bitterness.
A cool refreshing beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light yellow with a sticky, frothy white head. Aroma is light grass, weak hops and a little yeast. Soft carbonation. Grass and pine in the taste at first followed by resin. More like a session ipa than Belgian ale. Nonetheless, very nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy gold with a nice foamy head. Hoppy, floral and grapefruit nose. Heavy carbonation. Starts with a lot of citrus, then some wood and earth come into play. Lemon peel stays throughout. Dry bitter sweet finish. Turns a bit funky towards the end, a bit unfortunate, but all in all a pleasant beer

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle bought at BeYummi’s kiosk during "Lan Kwai Fong Beer & Music Fest 2015" in Central.
Looks: Cloudy hazy straw golden honey with a thin crust of yeast sedimentsOne and a quarter finger head and crumpety white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with near zero carbonation.
Aroma: Fragrant Pils malt, with banana, pineapple, grapefruit, passion fruit, orange, floral, honey, vanilla, sugar, pretty strong Bel yeast, very light lemon and thin grass.
Taste: Mid to light sweet moderate Pils malt, with strong tartness, light grapefruits, strong citrus peels, orange, strong molasses notes, strong yeast, lime, fairly strong bitter hops and very strong grass.
Body: Medium to light body. Smooth and slick palate.
Mouth Feel: Moderate and quite tasty Pils maltyness in a thin but and smooth background. Strong presence of wheaty tartness which blends well with the extra hops. Oats smoothness is moderate and not creamy. Very strong lemon peels with light grapefruit and orange. Fairly strong molasses forgood countermeasure. Yeasty and grassy to round. Very good!
Hoppiness: Lightly-scented pineapple, grapefruit, passion fruit, orange, floral, honey in nose. Strong citrus peels, light grapefruits, orange, lime, and strong grass in taste. Bitterness is strong for a lasting, high astringent tart and sweet malty finish.
After Taste: Fairly dry. Tart, smooth and strong bitter to mouth.
Comments: The extra dry hopping works wonder mostly in its strong citrusy and grassy taste, while the aroma is nice but rather modest. As Belgian IPAs, this one is right on top, with a bit more kick in nose and oats smoothness will surely helps. Recommended!
