3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
’Modern’, i.e. extra hoppy and IPA-like Belgian tripel, orange blond with off-white head and rich aroma, perfumed with citrussy hops and elegant yeasty spiciness as well as vivid fruitiness. Tastes sweetish and citrussy in onset, very refreshing, then complex yeasty spicy notes on a mellow, agreeable malty backbone and finishing in an earthy and refreshingly citrussy, peppery hop bitterness, lasting long and nicely accompanied with a warming, brandy-like but gentle alcohol effect. Delicious.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Bier Circus, Brussels. A full- bodied strong dry hopped Belgian ale. Quite complex, leaving very long bitter palate. Markets itself as an IPA, but the style does not quite correspond.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Visual: Heavy duty beer bottle. Pours almost clear golden yellow with a humungous lasting foamy head, lots of sticky lacing, tons of activity.
Nose: Floral chamomile honeyed malts, medium bright. (lvl-6)-pungency.
Attack: alcoholic bitterness, cream-fizzy mouthfeel,
Mid-palate: tangy-bubbly (MAIN) chamomile, pine, honey, malts, citrus
Finish: soft bitter grapefruit hops, lingering bitter hopped/alcoholic finish.
Summary: Lots of fizz, pine, chamomile-floral, and alcohol bitterness. Quite heavy on the palate and tough to finish a 75cl bottle alone.
