3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted from the bottle, 30/04/2013, in Antwerp.
Pours hazy straw/yellow-ish, with an ok head.
Aroma is mild, a bit sweet, with citrusy hops.
Taste is somewhat hoppy, lemony and zesty, but the boozy aftertaste ruins it all.
A good try for the Belgium brewery, but should be 2% less in alc.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle (HBF2013, Friday)
What a super aroma - full of fruity esters. Crisp palate, nice carbonation. Refreshing in the mouth, no 8% making you wary. of it. Maybe a bit sticky. Very drinkable. Not an IPA by any definition I know of, but a very good hoppy Belgian blond

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled@HBF 2013) Hazy pale golden, smallish head. Peachy, ice-creamy nose with a touch of exotic grapefruit. Same smooth peach and grapefruit in the flavor, with (for once!) enough pale-malty body for the hops. The bitterness doesn’t last even until the finish, though. Medium body, creamy-soft CO2. A smoothly peach-grapefruity ale, that is titled "IPA" for some strange reason.
