Bottle shared by Eline @ Van Moll Brewpub. Lightly hazy yellow to light orange color, full sized white head that lasts for quite a long time. Aroma is lightly malts, sorachi ace is clearly present, lightly a hint of yeast. Taste lightly malts, some yeast again, sorachi ace again, a touch of orangepeel, slightly zesty, lightly a soft bitter finish. Decent body and carbonation with that 7.6% ABV pretty well hidden.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma dominated by this very unique hop, herbal, spicy, pine and citrus, but most dominant is mediterranean herbs. Dry and herbal flavour with a bitter finish. Provence in a bottle. Must be the ideal beer for mediterranean cuisine.

Pours light golden with a big, staying, frothy, white head. Aroma has plenty of white pepper, bubblegum, mushrooms, apricot, crisp maltiness. Spritzy carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour is dry, crisp malts, still some bubblegum. Dry bitter, floral, peppery bitterness in the finish. One of the best Sorachi beers? Probabaly.
