UPDATED: JUL 4, 2012
2012-07-04, draught at Les Brigittines, Bruxelles, 7-4-8-4-16=39
Cloudy blond color with compact head. Attractive spicy aroma, with leafy hops. Dry mouthfel, the yeast is very spicy, pleasant; it has a very strong bitterness.
A light beer, but with character.
2009-06-26, bottle at Beer Mania, Bruxelles, 7-4-8-4-16=39
Cloudy golden color; smal head, persistent. Spicy malt perfume, dry and spicy malt flavor, a bit of yeast character, strong bitterness. Belgian, oh yes, maybe with a modern touch.
2007-08-01, draught at Moeder Lambic, Bruxelles, 8-5-8-5-17=43
Hazy golden color; huge creamy head; nice lace. Nice aroma, with honey and fresh German hops (Hallertau?). Fresh and refreshing, easy mouthfeel, with the malt flavor and the strong hopping increasing while drinking. Excellent.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
In the bottle at the Max & Joe’s Belgian Beer Tasting. Thanks for the beer mdi! Pours a cloudy gold with a white head. An intense hop aroma abounds here, but this also has some sweet, although not citrus, fruitiness to it. An intense fresh green hop aroma persists. This beer has an outstanding mouth and a great palate. Medium thickness. A long lingering hop finish grates on the tongue.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange colored, strongly cloudy appearance. Little yellow head. Spicy, lemony, surprisingly strongly hopped aroma, again this Senne-Saaz tone here. Medium bodied. Flavor is also dominated by hops, mild lemon and some spices also there. Aftertaste dries strongly with some fruits still. I like these Senne-brews.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours out in a hazy golden colour with a rich and dense white foam. Seriously dry Poperinge hop aroma of wet grass, pepper, dryish yeast and lemon-peels. Hoppy flavour of grass, lemon-peels, white pepper and white bread. Not much room for the malts to come through. Bitter and spicy finish of grass, ink and orange-peels. I really dig those Belgian IPA’s.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm) Pale golden yellow colour with greenish tinges, slightly hazy, firm white head. Malty nose with grassy hops, lemon and a hint of tropical fruit. Malty taste with loads of grassy hops. Really bitter, mainly dry finish with notes of lemon. Mainly dry, medium body, with a lovely grassy hops character throughout. Not very Belgian in style, but lovely beer.

Masterful simple, soft,easy drinking. Great for lunch. Opaque golden with a white abundant creamy hand and lace. Sweet fruit and yeast in the aroma. Easy medium mouthfeel. Went right to the sediment, which was sourish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The body’s a hazy gold with some swimmers and a frothy white head. Nice aroma of tart citrus fruits, lemon, flowers, and a light, funky tartness. Quite carbonated and gassy. It tastes of tart oranges and tangerines, lemongrass, warm spices, and finishes on a bitter & tart note. Refreshing; good for the coming warm weather.
