3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy light amber/golden with a decent sized cream colored head that stays for awhile and produces nice lacing. Aroma is complex with grapefruit, passion fruit, pinapple, light malt and an undertone of Belgian yeast. Very light sweetness with medium to heavy bitterness, short dry finish. Medium bodied, creamy texture, lively carbonation. Of all of the Belgian IPA’s I have had so far this one is by far my favorite.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
75cl. Light hazy golden orange with foamy head. A: medium ipa malts and hops, mostly, pine, lime, pineapple. Light syrup note, big Belgian blonde aroma. Inviting. T: medium ipa bitterness, light fruity, mostly lemon, light pineapple. Sweet malt character typical for a blonde, yeast note , biscuit mouthfeel. Medium bitter but definitely more pronounced than standard blonde. Finish is medium bitter, fruity, relatively long. Good crossover. Chouffe Dobbelen IPA packs more punch and flavor, though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle in the new K & S Beer & Tobacco store/tasting room in Brugge on Sunday 7th Feb 2016. Clean orange pour with a full white head. Hop lead with grass, grapefruit and other citrus notes overpowering any yeast or malty aromas. In the taste there is more balance as the malts assert themselves a little. Decent and a change from all the really heavy beers Belgium is usually known for (that and lager of course).

330 ml bottle. BB 14/08/2017. From JefVerstraete (ELS). Thanks a lot Jef!
Cloudy golden color with a huge rocky and foamy white head.
Nice fresh hops, sweetness, tropical fruits, mild yeast and some corny maltiness in the aroma. Balanced. The flavor is very pleasant. Balanced sweetish fruity hops, tropical fruits, mild bitterness, candies and maltiness in there. Highly drinkable and enjoyable. What a nice surprise!
