3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. BBE 03.2016 Superb spring aroma. Floral and fruity. Smells like a good IPA. Should smell. Pours pale , cloudy orange with creamy head. Crispy, fresh and bites gently with hoppy bitterness. Medium to full bodied brew. Drinking it feels like liking sand paper - a fun sensation. Lively carbonated, that helps the looks and aroma. Slightly easty finish, and it adds to the charm. Beautiful lacing also there. Was a very positive surprise for me.

Bottle at Klein Nederlo. Blond beer, lovely hoppy aroma. Spicy and herbal, yet a clear Belgian character that underlines the fine bitter tail.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with Joes and Dutchdrebus @ weekly tasting. Hazy orange color, huge white to off-white head. Aroma is malts, orangepeel, hops. Taste malts, orangepeel, a lemon-like sourish hint, yeasty. A bit like a citrus-hoppy saison. Firm carbonation, lightly oily texture, medium body. As an IPA I don’t find this a great succes, but it’s a nice beer for sure.

Bottle @ joes shared by benzai. Very hazy yellow to orange colour with a small white head. Smells hops, apricot, fresh, orangepeel, fruity, slightly sour. Tastes Belgian yeast, orangepeel, hint of sour.. Typical Belgian taste pretty much, just a bit hoppier than we’re used too (which is nice). Thin to medium body, slightly fizzy carbo.
