3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy dark golden body with quickly diminishing grey head. Clearly meant to be hop forward, but the aroma of fermented fruit, sweaty malts and and humous leave more of a bière de garde feel for me than an ipa. Suits me well though. Carbonation is lively, diminishing the taste a bit, especially the malty body. What’s left is a bitter, nee, astringent profile with dry, even watery aftertaste. Bit disappointed by this one. Aroma started out well yet odd, but the flavour does not deliver what it should. Needs to get the carbonation under control (although no gusher here) and it will already be much better. (33cl bottle from Bière Révolution)

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
19th December 2010
Cloudy gold beer, huge fluffy white head. Lagerish nose. Light dry palate. Dry but creamy malt, a little nutty. Touch of sourness. Light orange hop in the dry effervescent finish. Possibly has a mild infection. Too dry and frothy.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris; lot 1201, bb June 2013 (2 months old)
Hazy blond color with an orange shade; medium head, controlled carbonation. The aroma is quite anonymous. The flavor is dry, some malt, but also a sharp yeasty and metallic note; it has a quite strong bitterness, with some dry hop resins and very light fruitiness from the hops.
Drinkable, but too much affected by the yeast character, like many old style French beers.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gusher alert! Unclear yellow/brown colour, big fluffy, lacing head. Smells orange peel, pils, malty. Tastes like a blond beer, unfresh. Great carbo, okay body.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home shared with DutchDrebus. Extreme gusher! Brownish yellow / orange color, hazy, cloudy and with parts of yeast in it. Massive white head. Looks pretty disgusting. Smells like some kind of sweetness. Taste sweet, just a little bitter. Thin body, fizzy carbonation. No way this is an IPA!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a huge light tan head due to being very lively when opened, which hints of an infection. The aroma has notes of malt and spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and spices as well as hints of smoke. Odd - again could come from an infection. Thanks yespr for sharing.
