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)

Clear dark orange colour. Aroma is floral, hoppy and a bit soapy. Carbonation is very high. Nice floral hop taste with moderate bitterness. A bit of a yeasty edge to it.

Fin (7408) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle from Terre de Boissons, Coquelles, Citi Europe, Calais consumed at home Thursday 13th March 2014 Pours warm gold/orange a slight haze with a white head that soon departs. A little orange on the nose, bittersweet in mouth, slightly sweeter but actually its very good. Hoppy but a slightly sweeter hoppiness, I like this, nice beer. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

evergreen0199 (2011) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2014

minutemat (1627) - Ford, 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.

harrisoni (13702) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle from Terre de Boissons, Calais. Clearish golden lasting white head. Hoppy aroma. A little thin in flavour in the mouth. Some sherbert hop on the finish. Some esters on aroma. It’s ok, some ok hop, Pretty drinkable, I mean it lasted a short time. So yes, quite a good hoppy more than averagely hoppy beer and certainly the hoppiest thing from France outside of Thiriez I’ve had.

poech73 (187) - Nivelles, BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2013
Bouteille de 33cl. Bière blonde à la robe cuivrée au col onctueux et persistant. Au nez, le houblon est à l’honneur agrémenté de senteurs florales et aromatiques alcool léger. En bouche, c’est un corps robuste et bien equilibré entre l’amertume assez forte mais comme un IPA américaine, la rondeur du malt bien présent et les saveurs aromatiques de la levure. En résumé : un nez herbacé et résineux, une attaque fruitée et moelleuse, suivie d’une amertume franche mais courte en bouche. L’absence de longueur est la surprise de cette bière qui dans le genre reste dans la moyenne.

erickok (3532) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 27, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2013 Decent hop aroma, grassy and floral. Classic hop mix yet expressive enough. A Belgian blond, hopped up. Light bitter, smooth body, sweeter accessible bites but enough flavour to get this going. Not bad at all, working very well together. (33cl bottle from L?Abaye de Saveurs)

FatPhil (9344) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 1, 2013
330ml bottle (HBF2013, Saturday)
Sweet peachy aroma, a little dusty hops. Bitter body is nice. Simple and well balanced. Fruity and peachy in the mouth and finish too. Nice attenuation.
