Belle-Fleur India Pale Ale. The pure taste of hops

A gentle haze punctuate this straight golden ale which develops a towering frothy, dense white foam. Resinous and fairly green, herbal nose delves into the spicy, bready yeastiness to raise up a chivey, accentuated spicy profile. Not as fresh as I should have drank it, but I can see how the mostly faded dry-hopping must have been strongly flowery and resinous earlier on. At this mature stage (probably closing on 1-yr old), the yeast is fairly present though fortunately not stealing the show from the hops and the malt remains just gently cerealic and on the pale, bready side of the spectrum. This makes for a straightforward oiffering that does not necessarily strive for balance, but rather focuses on hops and I can see how enjoyable that must be for variety’s sake in Belgium. Fairly dry, yet convincingly warm and bold for a 6% offering, offering a relatively dense texture presumably thanks to the non-filtration and smallish, tighter than average bubbles. Hop-forward indeed despite having several months under its belt (BB Apr. 2014). Pretty good, though at this stage, it’s stronger on bitterness than aromas.

An orange beer wtih a big, clouding and blond head. The nose is fresh and tastefull, tropical fruits, mangos, citrusfruits and some pine forest, also some belgian fruits. Taste is tropical fruity, citrusfruits, some spices, the bitterness is smooth and not very powerfully, hint of vegetables. Medium bodied, very pleasant and smooth to drink. Quite nice, smooth and enjoyable IPA, the bitterness is quite mild.

Hazy orange-yellow with a big firm head. Smell is of belgian yeast with citrusy input. Taste feels very clean, floral with a sharp nice bitterness and nice notes of sweet malt. I really appreciate this one, it’s more towards american ipa than belgian ipa, the yeast is mostly prominent in the aroma.

Bottle (330 ml). Best before April 2015. Clear yellow golden with a huge fully lasting white head and huge bubbly lacing. Aroma is floral and of grass along lemony notes, citrus and malt. Taste is floral and slightly bitter with malt, citrus, lemon and caramel. Light body. Soft/moderate carbonation, but with a lot of small bubbles. Moderately dry finish. Fresh and refreshing. Nice combination of the floral/grass and lemon/citrus presence. Very good!
