3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. thnx to Secret Sinterklaas and Secret EuroSanta... thnx bearded men!! Pours a darker golden beer than I’d expected with a medium sized, off white head on top. Aroma is kinda vague and a bit old, but it still has hop presences. Some slight citric and earthy touches come trough. Flavor gave me a huge kick . Very bitter, upfront hoppyness going on and I really did not expect that much hops going on, after the age. Very hop forward, dry grapefruity overall taste, combined with a slight touch of malts. Long, lingering bitter finish.. Wow, can’ t believe how this should’ve been when fresh.

I really hope this beer will stay as a standard Berghoeve beer. When the huge foam head is gone great flavor with bitterness and spices remains. Longlasting aftertaste. Great beer. Bottle from Burg Bieren.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, from trade with Benzai, thanks!
Poured into a tulip glass, ABV 6.9%
The bottle opens with a loud pop and pours a very deeporange/brown beer,
with a huge off-white head. Very good retention and thick lacing left on the glass
as the foam finally collapsed.
Aroma is full of citrus fruits, orange, caramel malts.
Taste is bitter and it becomes even more bitter on the aftertaste, with good, long duration.Lots of citrus fruits again, grapefruit, orange zest, hint of malts. Great!
Medium thin body, nice carbonation and very dry palate.
Overall a great IPA, one of the best dutch ones I have had.
