3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours golden in color with a foamy whitish head. Strong notes of lemony fruityness and yeasty spicyness in aroma. Some mild soapy notes are there as well. Fizzy mouthfeel. Flavor is filled with soft, fruity notes, leaning even a bit to the ripe sweet garden fruitiness in this case.
Easy drinking and great tasting summer beer. Light grassy notes mixed with the before mentioned sweet and juicy fruityness in finish.

ivory white head that leaves some lacing. copper blond clear colour. strange smell at the beginning that i can only describe as something that reminds me of styrofoam, it disappears after a while. smells alcoholic, caramel sweetness, ester and fruit. tastes fruity sweetness, alcoholic followed by a short dry bitternes that has a wry aftertaste. medium body and lots of carbonation that also quickly escapes. quite thin mouthfeel. bottle 33 cl / best before 6-11-2014

Bottle. Aroma is mild with citrus and floral notes.
Taste is definetly IPAish with strong bitter hoppy and lemony notes. You can find the Belgian ale in the background. Nicely balanced.

330ml bottle, BBE 07/11/14. Pours a hale orange with a large and clean white head. Aroma is fruity, citrusy, light gooseberry and white currant. Taste is dry, medium bitter, quite light. Citrusy, lemony, slight touch of grape, touch of Belgian yeast characters in the background. Surprisingly light taste considering all things. Palate is medium with some carbonation. Forgettable really.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted many times in France on draft and in bottles. At best this is an original beer marrying the spiciness and roundness of a belgian ale with the citrus character of American hops. At worst the Belgian character dominates and the hops are obscured leaving a good but less interesting Belgian style, hoppy beer. On draft this beer can be excellent and truly original defying style characterizations (it’s definitely not an IPA).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle, Geers. - This smooth and cloudy golden ale is pleasant and light enough, but suffers from many other fancily-hopped traditional ale recipes brewed at De Proefbrouwerij to impress traditionally-minded continental EU palates. Perfume and taste are indeed mildly and pleasantly citrus- and pepper-bright with hops, but mf and malt base give off that typical sterile PB impression, rather chalky and too sweet to round off a refreshing brew. Agent provocateur? In a scenario that features Pelforth and Kronembourg as the bourgeoisie, at best. Or by calling this an IPA.
