This small time brewer from Brussels might be an upstart but they put together a finely crafted beer. It pours dark brown with a big frothy head and a hazy complexion. It has a hoppy aroma and the flavour too that lingers for just the right amount of time. Great beer!

Happy aroma, fruity, citrusy. Flavour is initially quite tart like grapefruit juice. Fruity and grassy, lots of hop complexity but with a well moderated level of bitterness. Fresh and clean.

Thick frothy long lasting white head drifting on a rather cloudy light orange brew. The aroma is enjoyable, a lot of floral hops, some exotic fruits. The hop prevails in the aroma. Reminds me of Duvel Tripel Hop... And that is a good thing. Highly carbonated, medium body and a pretty bitter finish. The taste is okay, nice bitterness, but I was expecting a bit more. Getting some sourness and yeast as well. This is a decent brew, well done.

330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Initially quite pungently hopped, with that belgo-frankish saisony yeasty twist to the aroma. Hazy straw, persistent tight spongey head. Taste initially gives me an off coconuttiness, please may this not be the dreaded sorachi ace. Anna’s cloudier one didn’t have that, it was full, thicker, stodgier even with bready grains. Mine’s more pungent, crisper feel too. Odder, more characterful. Belgian IPA isn’t my style, I like my blondes and triples nobler. But this does have a nice weirdness to it.

Drinking blind from a 33cl bottle.
A very fruity aroma, citrus, peaches, grapefruit but also hops and pine scent.
The unclear yellow/orange beer has a big not so white head.
Sweet and bitter are both very powerful in this beer, but also some sour is noticeable. The bitter is predominant in the end.

Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours hazy golden with a medium white head. The nose is soft, fresh, tangerine, nectarine, grain, dough and a light spicy edge, akin to hot cross buns. The taste is bitter-sweet, earth, dough, tangy, orange sponge cake and a touch of alcohol with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty alright.
