3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl. A big, collapsing, off-white head forms over an unclear, orange-colored body. Lots of peppery hops on the nose, with orangey fruityness, some white sugar and Belgian yeast, and also some grass. It’s quite bitter in the mouth, both initially and in the end, with orange zest, white sugar and a yeast hint. It’s quite dry on the palate, even though there’s sweetness there as well, with a soft but perhaps a bit low carbonation level. Fruity and bitter finish with a peppery, grassy hops touch. Quite nice this one, but I have to admit I prefer the more traditional Belgian way of brewing. 140111
