3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at Cafe Rose Red, Bruges, West Flanders, Belgium. Cloudy gold with white head. This proved to be a particularly bitter and hoppy beer, drying palate, orange pith, heavy. Pretty good.

Mooi goudblond/oranje troebel bier met mooie witte schuimkraag. Heerlijk bloemig aroma. Superzachte smaak met subtiel bittertje op het einde. Perfect in balans. Topbier van een topbrouwer !!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pineapple, humous, sweetness from the hops. Although it?s quite bitter, it feels separated from the actual flavour of the beer itself, the malts and yeast. Like hop extract was added after the fact (which I?m sure wasn?t the case). Not so fresh. It?s okay, but falls in between styles and doesn?t take the best of both worlds. (75cl bottle from Belgian Beer Shop Leuven)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2015 From tap at Moeder Lambic Original - the owner told me this is brewed very limitedly and proudly stated his keg was the last one around for the time being. Very thick and rocky, heavily lacing, stable, off-white head over a hazy, deep golden blonde beer, looks pretty. Aroma of acacia honey, tangelo, orange juice, ripe plum, pineapple, white bread, peach. Soft, vividly fruity, sweet onset of exotic fruits and apricot, smooth, bready and a bit caramelly, sourish accent adds refreshment, mineral touch, very florally and citrussy aromatic hop finish, spicy but not thoroughly bittering - a bit like in Troubadour Magma; this allows the estery and malty fruit sweetness to linger. One of the best Belgian IPAs I had so far.
