3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at BD Shoreditch. It pours a clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is complex, grassy, piney, oranges, light grapefruit and a slight yeasty touch. Mild carbonation, lovely dry mouthfeel. Flavour is hoppy, dry, bitter. Especially grassy and a bit piney. The Belgian yeast strain lends the beer some softness and a light fruitiness. Quite enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught (5,4%) @ Kitty’s
Aroma feels at first quite like Punk IPA with fruity notes, gooseberry bush and biscuits. Then some earthy and urinal cake notes do occur. Flavour is slightly sour with gooseberry bush, hops, some caramel, biscuits and urinal cake. Also some cereal afterwards. Finishes sour and slightly tart with more urinal cake, earthy notes and hints of bitter bush leaves. A Punk IPA with urinal twist. Better without, but not bad in this way either.

Draught. Clear pale copper in color with a small head. A bit of skunky notes, some floral and notes of citrus in aroma. Sweetish taste blended with toffee and grassy notes and some skunky notes in aftertaste. Not that interesting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber with a small head.
Nose shows strong Belgian phenols, some sweet clean malt and floral hops. Also a soapy note.
Very similar flavours, but with a big fruity hops presence. Dries out a little in the finish bu there’s still a fair bit of malt. Could use more bitterness. A bandaid character is noticeable later.
Carbonation seems a little low.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Patricks. Clear orange/golden with a nice off-White head. Pleasant aroma of citric fruit, particular peaches and some pine, grass, malt and a twist of spicy Belgium yeast. Flavor is sweet, soft malt, some caramel, fruity hops as in aroma and nice strong bitterness. A successful combo, a bit sweet, but this just indicates the Belgium element of this beer. Very nice.
