A bit under-rated I think. Amber body, with off white head, nice lacing. Vibrant hoppy aroma. Bitter taste, lots of flavour. A really solid APA in my books.

500ml bottle from Terre de Boissons. Clear gold thick white head. Sherberty hop aroma. Tasty slightly soapy hoppy beer. It’s fine, just a bit soapy is all. Hops are fine and sherberty if not exactly flavourful. Fine.

På fat. Detta är en välhumlad, men från sötma väl balanserad APA. Något tunn kropp för ett högre smakbetyg. I doften inslag av citron, gröna äpplen, fläder och persika. Grape, lime, persika och karamell i smaken. Något kolsyrig munkänsla.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2013 Was very happy when I found this new (well, new to me) beer at my favorite bottle shop today for two reasons: "New" and an APA. I still have dozens of Belgian Ales and other Belgian beer at home, but my mouth screamed loud out for another style than this for days now. This one comes with a clear amber colour, low head and medium body. Nose of fresh hops and spices. Taste of aromatic hops, pink and white pepper, thyme, herbs, spices like coriander, grass and light honey. Quite bitter and very dry finish. After I had some other beers of this brewery earlier in the year and they all were around average and boring, this one quite surprised me. Very refreshing, easy to drink and just great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle) Slightly hazy, golden colour with a mid-sized, slightly off-white foamy head. Herbal, slightly grassy and subtle fruity hoppy aroma with a slightly buttery malty background. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Buttery and doughy malt upfront with mainly herbal and grassy hops; dry and moderately bitter finish with a lasting herbal and grassy hoppy aftertaste. Not bad but I missed the fruit character. 29.VI.13
