American pale ale (apa) de 4,5 % abv, pour 10° plato, et 37 ebu. Malts pils et cara. Houblons sladek et amarillo. Exemplaire à mi-validité pour 2 ans préconisés par le brasseur. Couleur ambre pêche (23 ebc), à la clarté nette. Bulles très fines, partout assez vives et quelques moyennes par à-coups. Mousse beige clair, à flocons moyens, nappage stable à 2 mm. Arômes de houblons fins, malt riche, agrumes, pointe légère de citronnelle, et touche de framboise. 1ère bouche soyeuse, à la très belle entame malt/houblon avec une nette touche de tabac. Arrière-bouche à l’amertume ciselée, quelques touches de trèfle. 2ème avec houblon fleuri et pointe de baies rouges, airelles. Arrière-bouche très fine, complexe, incisive. 3ème avec des nuances ultimes sur le houblon et l’amertume. Arrière-bouche très longue, délicieuse. La longueur donne une infinité de nuances et d’assemblage, du bois de pin, mangue, lichee, groseille blanche, et. Jambes fines, groupées, serrées. Levure fine, construite, un peu épicée, très belle ligne. Alcool : malgré son faible niveau, il agit à très bon escient sur l’amertume. La finale se déguste à tous petits flots, qui sont chacun de purs moments de bonheur. CONCLUSION : l’apa bien réalisée est un chef d’oeuvre comparable aux plus belles ipa. Nous en avons la démonstration ici … Qu’on se le dise !!

PhillyCraft (5118) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2012 On tap, pours an orange tinted brown color with off white small head and dct foam lacing. Aroma of amarillo juicy hops, caramel biscuit, apricot, and some green grapes. Taste is fresh grassy hops, lemon/orange peel, pine, caramel. Had a nice bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable. Updated, drank superfresh in the Netherlands at In de Wildeman. This was my go-to session of the trip. Hazy golden pour, thick medium off white head. Notes of pineapple, tangerine, perfectly balanced hops with some marshmallow malting aftertaste. Piney, Fuely, Smooth mouth. I guess these ipas are amazing before they make the trip

CERVEZA DE COLOR RUBIO, HACIA AMBAR , ESPUMA BLANCA DENSA Y POCO PERSISTENTE, AROMA SON TODOS A FLORES, RESINA DE PINO, SABOR A LUPOLO FINAL BIEN PRONUNCIADO Y PERSISTENTE. SI TOMADA A SU TEMPERATURA RECOMENDADA (10- 12 GRADOS) Y CERRANDO LOS OJOS, ESTARIAMOS DELANTE DE UNA VERDADERA BITTER ALE INGLESA, Y MAS BUENA.

Grosse mousse avec une belle persistance. Goût fort de Amaraillo, impression d’amertume accentuée par le goût du dry hopping. belle réussite !

dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2008
Amber colored beer. Very good fresh hoppy smell. The beer has a nice balance of roasted malts and hopps. It tastes light, very drinkable. Fot so little alcohol very long elegant aftertaste of hopbitters.

Martinus (4350) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2011
Light amber, firm, rather well lasting, off-white foam head consisting of fine small bubles. Fruity aroma. Grapefruit, grape, some dried apricot. Fragrant lime (linde) blossom (lindebloesem). All the best of the amarillo hops. Full taste. Some hop bitterness. Malt sweetness. Again the grapefruit, together with candied orange peel. No sence of lack of alcohol, even though it has a relatively low ABV. Dry lingering aftertaste, astringent, the bitterness of the hops comes through in full strenght after a while. Really refreshing and nice beer. (from 33cL bottle)
