3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from CBB. This hoppy 6% belgian saison pours a lively light gold with a dense head of foam that had incredible staying power and left wonderfully delicate lacing behind. The nose is right of the bat striking you with a fruity hop punch before revealing the underlying more delicate funky saison character - really nice. Medium bodie, the taste has a delicate fruity hoppiness (lemon, passionfruit, mango) with a more assertive brett-like funky saison character and a crisp dry finish. The finish is a bit metallic in that funky brett way. All in all a beer made for hop and funk lovers but more suited to a warm summer day than a cold winter’s evening.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2014 Great modern Belgian IPA. Very hoppy, a beautiful citrus and floral nose with a taste that follows. The finish is quite bitter but I like that. It is a bit cloudy at times. Maybe a bit low in alcohol, a 7% would have maybe created a better balance...

0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Hazy copper color. Aromas of tart citrusy fruits and spicy cheese. Bitter, tart and spicy flavor with clove, pepper, lemon peel, pine and some sourish cheesy notes. Hops and belgian yeast are somewhat detracting.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2014 Bottle of 25 cl, Brussels Beer Project glass.
One very very good floral hop beer, with citra and bitter notes.
I prefer that beer to the Duvel Triple Hop, even if she’s a good one too. Good aroma (citrus), beautiful appearance. The palate is strong, as the taste.
Try it and love it !
