I didn’t put this in my beer cellar list, so I’m not sure when I got it. If I had, I’d have cracked a low-alcohol hoppy beer much sooner. Pour is just noticeably darker than the usual golden Belgian pale lager. Lots of floaty bits, I’m guessing hop bits rather than yeast? Aroma is nice, but it’s nice for a sweet Belgian pale, nit much trace of hop. But then there’s the taste. It is bitter as advertised, just the peppery noble hop bitterness. Backed by a dryly fermented malt that just gives this the nice feel of a beer. Something your Bud-drinking uncle might enjoy if he gets curious about those funny looking beers you have.

Gialla opalescente, bella schiuma bianca pannosa di buona persistenza. Aroma di scorza d'arancia, limone, erbaceo e pepe. Al palato si ripresentano gli stessi esteri fruttati, il pepe e una bella nota amaricante erbacea data dai luppoli. Corpo leggero, discretamente carbonata, molto beverina.

:This is a beer that’s nice to look at; is refreshing and easy to drink, but is a little shallow in flavor.

AgentAle (954) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
Aroma is wild yeast, hay, lemon grass , citrus and light funk. Taste is very light malts that are balanced quite well with a slightly tangy and earthy hop profile . Appearance is a hazy gold with a fluffy pillow head that retains quite well.

lello4ever (203) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
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.

Tometclo (42) - FRANCE - APR 7, 2015
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

rdb84 (229) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2015
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.
