ChrisOs Marvellous Pre GBBF Mega Tasting. Clear gold beer, little white head. Light dry and airy palate. Nice floral notes with a little sweet pale malt. Trace of citrus. Dry finish. All right.

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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours gold into a snifter. White head with good retention recedes to hug rim. Honey and caramel aromas. Sweet yeast and tropical fruit front to back. Dry, lasting pepper finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dobre i ciekawe piwo. Dry hopping oraz goryczkowe i aromatyczne chmiele pachną ładnie. Wszystko zgrane elegandzko, piana ładna i spora, sporo mazi w butelce i ładnie powolutku rozprowadza się w tulipanie. Piwo jest na finiszu bardzo drożdzowe i jakby nieco nut zbożowych z belgijskiego tripla. Nazwa prowokacyjna:) i polecam skosztować je.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at La Fine Mousse, Paris. Lighly hazy golden, small head. Sugary nose with gooseberry and mango. Very sweet with clean mouthfeel and medium body. Clean with the sort of generic, half lifeless de Proef mouthfeel. A thin layer of tropical fruits. Mid bitter finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
on tap at la fine mousse, paris. relatively clear light golden with a decent white head, some retention. breadied malts, cereals, fruitiness - apricots, some belgiumness. definitely something wrong with this brew - as per the managers’ sayings too - don’t understand why it was still on menu... average to soft carbonation, light to medium body - oily, short lightly herbal finish. where are the hops? will re-rate for sure...
