4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Miorge-Mihoublon, Arlon.
Nice fruity and citrucy aroma with a slight grain/biscuit touch. It pours a nice light orange colour, though after incorporating the yeasts tends to be quite cloudy (I like yeast ^^).
The taste is nice, very refreshing, with a balanced fruitiness and bitterness. The finish is not to bitter and everything tends to converge to the idea that this beer is well balanced !
A flemish beer with a french name : this beer is Belgium in a bottle, IPA wise.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home 5th December 14. Classy IPA, no as good as the Crime passionnel and the DIPA though. The aroma is pleasant, the taste is mild than I thought, but this is well made, slightly over carbonated for my palate. Over all decent

Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Vivid golden pour with a foamy white head. Appealing fragrant hoppage aplenty in the nose. Gently sweet flavour with lovely hops and tropical fruits in tandem with some notes of yeast, malt and grass. Satisfying bitterness and a top notch Belgian IPA.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 Nice gold hazy body. Amazing nose, very surprising, very earthy, almost meaty too me ;)
The taste is OK but not great, quite disappointing in regards of the nose... The fizzyness is well balance though.
