Clear golden when poured gently, yeast left in bottle for now. Huge foamy white head. Aroma is grassy hops, some belgian yeast also. Yeast poured to the glass the beer gets a bit more orange and murky and aroma more yeastier. Taste is dry and quite light, hoppy, some fruits too. A bit champagneish. Long finish, rather bitter actually. Good one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to tulip Pepper, grapefruit, orange, wheat, and white wine. Pours a hazy light yellowish amber with a bright white frothy head. Taste is lemon and orange, with lots of bitterness.

Light blonde, dense white head, fine bubbles. Fresh citrus aroma, no soap. Bitter hoppy taste, citra, now with a bit of soap, medium body, nice and light in abv!

Una belga dal colore giallo paglierino molto torbida e una buona schiuma compatta. Poco aroma ma bevendola fa centro, con una spiccata amarezza data dal luppolo (non a caso l’etichetta recita hoppy ale). Molto dissetante grazie anche al grado alcolico.

D’un jaune troublé, une mousse blanche légère, arômes fruités, l’amertume reste légèrement en bouche. C’est correct mais je m’attendais à mieux pour cette bière. 33 Cl chez Biérocratie

Bottle. Pours like a soft drink, high carbonation, light yellow color. Fresh and crisp aroma that reminds of IPA: lychee, carrot juice, pineapple, yeast/cheese note. Taste: holy mother of bitterness... Fruity undertone with a penetrating bitterness that reminds of walnut. In subsequent sips, the bitterness mellows down and starts to pair nicely with the fruity palate, which is mostly exotic fruit, carrot, hint of apricots. If IPA is a little too sweet/exotic for you, try this one.

joeneugs (3816) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 27, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Perry’s. It pours a light orange color with a nice white head. The aroma is lightly citrus, light spice and a bit earthy. More noble in character. Slight hints of skunk/age. The mouthfeel is velvety with rich pale malt, nice bready yeast character and snappy noble spicy hop bitterness. Very soft. Minor citrus notes. This was pretty nice, but seems like it would be better fresher. Too bad there’s no bottle dates. Plus at $5 for a small bottle, this won’t be a repeat purchase.

Piana bia?a, drobno p?cherzykowa i trwa?a, sztywna, w szkle pozostaje do ko?ca degustacji. Aromat hm, wyra?na sucha trawa, chmiel i trzeba si? naprawd? nam?czy?, ?eby wyczu? niesamowicie delikatne nuty owocowe. Troch? to wkurzaj?ce. Smak, to dok?adnie to samo co zapach. Wszystko ukryte (mo?e specjalnie :D). Tylko goryczka, której nie trzeba szuka?, grejpfrutowa, minimalnie zalegaj?ca. Wysycenie niskie, alkoholu nie czu? wcale. Jestem zawiedziony, na etykiecie wysmarowane "extra hoppy ale", a ja si? pytam: gdzie ten extra chmiel? Wg. mnie jedyny jasny punkt Taras Boulba to piana. Tylko czy to wystarczy?. Jak kto? potrzebuje "odhaczy?" to piwo, to i tak spróbuje. Je?li masz wybór to kup co? innego.

Very refreshing, with notes of juniper juice, pine needles and a pleasant aftertaste of tangerine sorbet.

Low alcohol pleasant drinking beer. Nice bitter mouthfeel from the extra hop. Besides the bitterness the beer doesnt pleases me a lot. The beer would be excellent on a sunny day.

On tap. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Hoppy aroma, not very strong. Hoppy flavour, bitter finish. Good pale, but not really very Belgian.
