3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Unclear, amber colored, nice frothy off white head with nice lacing. aroma is some caramel malt, bit yeast, fruity, citrusy and herbal and very spicy. Taste is medium sweet caramel and candy sugar, some fruits and straw, citrus and a whole lot of spicy hoppy niceness. Medium+ bitterness, dry finish and a lasting bitter aftertaste, a bit bready in the finish. Medium bodied, average carbonation. With Chouffe Houblon, the best Belgian IPA!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. No date on cap. Refrigerated and seems fairly new. It pours an orange color with a massive, frothy off white head that shrinks within a minute or two. The aroma jumps out as alcoholic with some dried fruit esters of apricot, plum and pineapple. Very light honeyed malt with bready yeast. The flavor is nice balanced yeasty basement with strong hop flavor of flowers, herbs, pineapple and apricots. Strong spicy, floral bitterness. Light acidity and honeyed malt on the palate. Good soft mouthfeel with strong carbonation. A solid Belgian Strong.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful clear golden bier, huge white head and lots of bubbling.
Smell is pears and apples, vanilla, leather. Lightly metallic, touch of strawberries, some fresh cheese. Wet wood. Taste is bitter astringent, fresh and sticky. Not very full, with none of the sweetness suggested bh the smell.

From a bottle. Fruity taste and aroma. Apricot. Label ridicilous and probably has negtive affect on the sale figures.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
While the bottle didn?t gush on opening like for others, my glass did end up filled with 60% white rocky foam that took 10 min to recede to a drinkable level. The beer itself is an attractive hazy gold. Aromas of spicy clove phenols, fresh grains, honey, a little apricot. The taste is drier and more bitter than the smell suggests - lots of clove, floral honey, multigrain bread, coriander. Long dry bitter finish. Medium bodied with strong carbonation. The heavy dose of hops creates an interesting and enjoyable variation on the classic belgian strong golden ale or tripel.
