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.

Bottle shared by matjoobolut, thanks! Murky amber, white head. Nose is belgian yeast, fruit, malt, grain. Taste is malts, caramel, grains, fruity esters, spice and hoppy bitterness in the finish. Not bad by any means, but somehow subdued.

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!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
