3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle at Brasserie de la Senne, Brussels. Lightly hazed amber with a fine white head.
Straight up American hops in the nose show a strong grapefruit and pine resin core with minor apricot and orange accents. Malt is pale and cara, lightly toasty, somewhat bready. Fine natural carbonation with soft malt, that’s the highlight. Medium body, semi-sweet, finish is appropriately bitter and a little resinous. It’s certainly well-made, but the ingredients limit the appeal. Yvan’s noble-hopped beers are some of the best in the world, he doesn’t need to be making the prototypical western resin/grapefruit IPA.

330 ml bottle from Birra+ (bottled on 19-06-2014). Deep sunrise orange, quite hazy, with a perfect fluffy and persistent bright white head. Great lacing. On the nose citrus and peaches/apricots, light spiciness, rye bread and light esters. Mindblowing mouthfeel, so creamy and smooth. Perfectly balanced, not too bitter and not too sweet. So juicy and tasty. with a lingering citrusy and resinous aftertaste. Soft to average carbonation, medium to full body, creamy texture. Simply stunning. I wish I had more bottles.
