3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Veiled honey-gold with a fine, stable head leaving dabs of lace. Attractive, G+T-like aroma with a botanical freshness, pine resin and crystallised lemon notes. Bright, fresh beer biting crisply with herbal and lemon zest notes, spiky carbonation, a lasting pepperiness suggesting incense and spices; a jasmine-like aftertaste. Crisp, spicy hopping reminiscent of La Rulles. Didn’t touch the sides.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from ABC Leuven. Lemony nose with grains, bread, some hay. Seems somewhat hoppy. Dark gold-orange, clear, lots of bubbles and a frothy head. Tangy orange and lemon flavor with honey and biscuits, slightly sweet but somewhat tangy and a rather bitter, peppery finish. Nice citrus hop flavor. Spices. Somewhat creamy. I wouldn’t call it a super hoppy beer a la XX Bitter, but it is going in that direction. A bit too fizzy. Good.

(Bottled) Very hazy amber with a smallish, firm head. Dryish, but caramely and very fruity aroma with flowery hops. Fruity-caramely-grainy flavor with hints of cardboard and lavender floweriness. Medium body with soft carbonation. Overall a quite pleasant - a bit girly, yet dry and interesting enough brew.
