COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ici, le houblon est à l’honneur. Sous une mousse onctueuse et persistante, vous trouverez un nez herbacé et résineux, une attaque fruitée et moelleuse, suivie d’une amertume franche et longue en bouche. A apprécier en toute occasion.

Holmen1 (3641) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2015
Flaske fra Holmens importkoffert, med Ovesen 17.5.15: højt skum og lett uklar kobbergylden farge. Søt aroma som minner meg om aprikosmarmelade. Floral smak med appelsinmarmelade og en dæsj kvae. Lekker ettersmak som tenderer mot det søtlige. Meget drikkbar, dette er raske leker (lekre saker).

Holmen2 (1871) - NORWAY - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle shared with JMD at HND 17.05.15. Slightly hazy pale orange. Very dense off-white.head ans lacing. Aroma of bitter citrus and Sevilla marmelade. Fine taste, with very good aftertaste, balanced with marmelade sweetness.

3fourths (8638) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2014
From bottle. Highly effervescent, tall white head on a lightly hazed gold body.
Impression of the nose is floral / perfumed lemon balm, wood oil, herb, dust, musty sweat sock (iso acid?), strong aged hop cheese odor. Sharp and bracing carbonation. Soapy and lightly astringent, dry, overly-phenolic, over-fermented, stark, herbal. Fun beer even not in the best shape. Not an IPA at all, closer in character to nebulous French Biere de Garde, but certainly hoppier than most.

vipinvelp (2886) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2014
Somewhat opaque yellow with huge white lasting, lacing, lip sticking foam head. Perfect. Decent bitter hop aroma, some spice. Tastes real nice bitter with some hay present. Bitter aftertaste, short lasting. (Kemmel 201407)

minutemat (2577) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2014
330ml bottle from a shop in Flanders somewhere. Taste is particularly hoppy, light and lemony with a distinct alcohol presence. Some sugary sweet and tropical fruity aspects poke their nose in as you work your way through, but on the whole not a bad beer.
