Bottle 75 cl. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Fresh, herbal and spicy hop aroma. Medium body, a heavy yeastiness and dry and bitter hops. Ends quite bitter. But still: Belgian yeast and solid hops to me is not a good match. 271212

fiulijn (18577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 28, 2013
Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Hazy deep blond color with creamy head. The aroma is delicate, hoppy, a bit spicy and fruity. Smooth mouthfeel, good malt flavor and very good, true Belgian yeast spicy character; strong bitterness, with resins and some hop fruitiness (bitter oranges).
A winner for elegance and harmony, with a bold character.

yngwie (16423) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2014
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
