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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a brownish red with a medium, partly fading off-white head and an aroma that’s dominated by orange, also notes of lemon, syrup, caramel, fresh hops, liquor and cider. The taste is surprisingly sweet compared to the aroma, but not overly sweet. Lots of fresh fruity notes and a nice long hoppy bitterness in the finish. A really nice new beer, I can only hope it stays in the Berghoeve assortment!
