3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Golden pour with a huge amount of chunks. Solid off-white head. Aroma of latex paint, ripe fruits, peppery, shoe sole and some herbs like rosemary. Flavor is bitter spicy and quite fruity with something strange and herbal. Still well balanced and quite unique.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle, shared. - Most likely the most relaxed mix of a Belgian strong ale and an IPA I have yet come across on both sides of the pond. This brewery doesnít even need to scream out its crossover style or use of US/exotic hops, itís just called Extra and at a modest 6,5% it is packed with the subtlety of a Belgian ale yeast and some tangerine/citrus hops adding gentle summer flavours. A paean to subtlety that I prefer over other Belgianís explicitous dryhopping experiments (Duvel) and some US (Flying Dog) triple IPAs, although they are points on the same sliding scale. - Probably sessionable.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
big malted barley and wheat aroma like butterscotch and sweet with caramel and perhaps a bit of vanilla. flavors like above with hint of vegetable and a bit of really any fruit iíll say pineapple. Beige looking brew with a hop presence that intensifies and retreats. never had such a full brew yet with a watery body this is magnificent beer.

Draft at Monks Cafe. Hazy light orange amber pour with a huge frothy head that left lots of runny lace. Some amber fruits in the nose but the taste is quite dry. Lemon pepper. Green banana. Earl Grey tea. Plenty of hops. Fizzy on the tongue. Strong fragrant blonde.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2013 An excellent beer that‚Äôs hoppier than the Blonde. Due to my personal tast preference I prefer the Blonde but still think this is an excellent beer and would drink it any time. Yellow/orange pour with more of a hoppy aroma than the blonde. Huge white head. Lovely beer.
