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.

fantti (936) - FINLAND - SEP 29, 2016
Pullo @ K & S Beer & Tobacco, Brugge. Kaatuu lasiin kullan oranssina ja kirkkaana, noin 3 sormen paksuisella, hyvää pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksusta hyökkää havumetsäiset aromit, makeamman karamellisen mallasrungon tukemana. Hedelmäisiä ja jopa marjaisen puoleisia aromeja löytyy huluttelemalla. Maku on ennen kaikkea karamellisen maltaisuuden ympäröimä, sitruksinen, pihkainen ja puumainen humalointi koittaa työntyä esiin, mutteivät ihan pysty tulemaan tarpeeksi pinnalle. Lievää mausteisuuttakin tuntuu, tulisikohan hiivasta? Suutuntuma on makeahko, mutta pikku hiljaa katkerot alkavat kuivattaa suuta. Kokonaisuus on keskitäyteläinen. Aivan turhan vanha IPA (jos oikein ymmärsin, niin päiväys on jo tässä kuussa), josta aromihumalointi ja karskit katkerot ovat jo hävinneet. Edelleen kuitenkin suht nautittava ja mukava kuivattava takapotkukin tulee. Ehdottomasti uusintamaistoon, jos saa tuoreena ja sitten voi pisteitäkin vähän viilata, mikäli on tarpeen..

nathanvc (224) - Brugge, BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2016
At Ghent Beer Festival. Pours hazy yellow/orange with a big frothy white head. The aroma contains citrus, other fruits, grass, hops, hay, flowers, a bit of caramel and yeast. It tastes medium to heavy bitter, light sweet and light sour, with a lingering bitter finish but acidic touches to it. Creamy texture and average carbonation. Very well balanced. Though not a big fan of IPAs, I find this pretty agreaable.
