flesje dankzij ruil met @Edo, bedankt !
helder gouden met schuimige kraag. Aroma is floraal, hop, den, citrus, mout, zoet, fris en fruitig. Smaken zijn matig zoet, redelijk bitter, matig qua sterkte, matig fruitig van citrus en met name meloen tonen. Wat wel opvalt aan dit bier naast het feit dat er voor 4% wel smaak aan zit het en vrij waterige/dunne body heeft. Ik zou dit biertje echter wel graag willen drinken in de warme periode, bv na het sporten ...

erickok (4322) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 12, 2015
Heavy foamy, golden dark body. Very fresh hops, both pine and mango. Taste is not too thin for the abv, and well bitter. Unfortunately I had loads of yeast so that poured partly in my glass, making it a but harsh in the end and rough. Carbonation is spot on, quite heavy to give more mouth feel. Great brew, impressive session ipa. (33cl bottle from trade with Edo, thanks!)

Bottled (backlog). Hazy goldeny amber colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, citrus, some sweet malts and mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is spices, herbs, toffee, some yeast and mild fruity and floral notes as well. Mellow, but refreshing.

Idiosynkrasie (5023) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2014
330ml bottle. Hazy amber colour with huge, frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Herbal, piney and fruity aroma, some grapefruit, tangerine, caramel malty background. Taste is initially moderately sweet caramel malty and fruity hoppy, notes of red berries, grapes, grapefruit, some pine, later more and more bitter hoppy and with a tendency towards watery, additionally a chalky touch in the finish; too liveley carbonation. Typical Dutch IPA features (lively carbonation, chalky water) decrease the pleasure of enjoying an obviously well composed beer.

Alengrin (3401) - BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2014
Low alcohol IPA, actually my first ’session IPA’, with a very thick, yellowish white, very moussy head captured after gushing, leaving lots of lacing on the edges of the glass; colour is a pinkish orange blonde, completely clouded from the start. Aroma mostly reveals fresh, green hops and dry-hopping, impressions of grapefruit, orange peel, tonic water, hemp, black pepper, dried apricot, some banana, some caramel, rosewater, vanilla, freshly grated ginger, white bread. Taste starts with a vivid, sparkling fruitiness, a basket of oranges, peaches, gooseberries and red apples as it were, with lots of citrussy ’fraîcheur’, inevitably thinnish mouthfeel, light caramelly maltiness, very yeasty; from the middle onwards, a dry, resinous, ’green’ hop bitterness kicks in, very citrussy (Amarillo) and aromatic (Sladek, i.e. Saaz-like), building a surprisingly thirst-quenching, long, complex, dry bitter finish. If the American craft breweries invented this: kudos. What a great idea to capture the essence of an assertive IPA in a low alcoholic beer! I do suspect, however, that this particular example was not intended to be completely cloudy and gushing, so something must have gone wrong, but I really enjoyed this nevertheless.
