4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bouteille de 750 ml de blonde. Arôme de résine cèdre et pamplemousse. En bouche, la complexité du parfum se poursuit. Amertume puissante mais agréable en fin de bouche. Notes subtiles de gomme balloune. Pas pour les débutants !

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy gold with large rocky white head that lasts, effervescent, and leaves lace all up the glass. Aroma is mostly belgian yeast esters and phenols, spicy, fruity, citrus, banana, floral, and perfumy. Flavour is a spicy, fruity and an alcohol blend, citrus/orangey, med-high bitterness(lingers a little), a faint pilsner malt character, light honey like sweetness though finishes a medium dry. Great belgian beer, if your not careful this could really have you seeing double after a few!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy gold with fluffy white head. Grapefruit and lychee in the smell. Very grassy, citrus peel, yeasty, light malty touch. Green apple. Taste is quite bitter, in a unripe fruit kind of way, both from hops and yeast. Medium body, not much alcohol presence. Drinkable, but too one-dimensional for me. Hops and yeast don’t work together too well here, could use more maltiness too.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Proof Bottle Shop. Poured into a champagne glass. Tons of really bubbly off-white head with a slightly hazy orangy yellow color. Aroma is sweetly floral, grassy, and touch of yeasty goodness. Taste has a good hop bitterness, some spicyness, and with the same floral notes coming through. Also some light sweet malt and a good amount of the fruity-ness I associated with tripels. Very light and dry on the tongue, but the bubbles and hop spice kinda bite at the tongue. I definitely enjoy this beer!

Bottle 33 cl. Pours golden fizzy with frothy white head. Taste is dry bitter and crisp. Notes of bananas, citrus, bread, floral, herbs, caramel. Lots of taste with almost no alcohol taste makes this pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
FROM NOTES: August 8, ’12
Poured on draft at The Trappist into a Chouffe Houblon glass.
A: Hop forward in a distinctively European way. Spicy floral hops and a hint of citrus.
A: Pours a bright, golden dark yellow with a large, distinctly Belgian, fluffy off-white head that dissipates into copious super sticky lacing.
T: Very dry, no sweetness to the malt whatsoever. Some herbal/earthy flavors that are quite mellow. Very unique hop characteristics to it. Finishes dry with a pleasant lingering bitterness.
P: Medium body with light carbonation. Definitely dry.
O: I’m generally not wild about Belgian IPAs, but this beer is unique in a great way. Super smooth to drink, and quite crisp.
