Troebel bier met oranje gloed. Citrus, grapefruit, beetje kruidig in de neus. Lekker fris biertje, beetje romig, met hoppige afdronk. Niet al te bitter. Goeie ipa.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear-ish body, but there are also quite a lot of small sediments suspended in the deep golden body. The large head is creamy, white and long-lived, and the fully lasting layer laces the glass well. Moderate aroma of Belgian yeast, light generic fruits and spices. Moderate flavour of Belgian yeast, spices, light fruity notes including apple, and general hoppy notes. The taste is light sweet and moderate bitter. Medium body, dry and lively carbonation. I was never in doubt while drinking this beer: this is a well hopped Belgian ale, it never crossed my mind that this was supposed to be an IPA. I find it a bit too hoppy for the yeast profile, the hops masks the Belgian-ness. On the other side, it’s far to under-hopped for an IPA. Anyway, a nice ale!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle, slightly hazy pale amber with high white head. Poured carefully the aroma is an explosion of fruit, with the yeast it loses the fruitiness. Taste is very well balanced, bitterness mixed with a good malt body and a nice bitter finish, with yeast the taste flattens and becomes a soggy belgian blonde ale.
