4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
When Belgium and IPAs hang out, everyone wins. This lil’ stinker is no exception. The typical musty, bubblegummed yeasty dank of Belgium mushes into the floral and resin hops backboned by good ol’ caramel. A hazy straw bomb with a quickly dissipating white head that laces correctly. Bittersweet with hints of lemon, hops and honey, this is a joy to drink. Mid-low carbonation keeps the body smooth as silk. A great marriage of styles.

Yellow, and cloudy with white foam that lasts. Mild sour earthy apricot. Malt in the first sip, with a strong flavour of apricot. Hint of alcohol. Nice sweet grape fruit bitterness in the aftertaste that grows. High in carbon. From a bottle, a gift from Amy

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mine had a different picture, but I do believe this is correct. Poured a dark hazy straw with a big white creamy head. Aroma was of citrus, floral hops, basement, apples, and yeast. Tasted fruity with light gum, banana, and wheat. Had a chewy medium body with low carbonation. Was a strong bitter tongue coater as well. Very quaffy and quite a stand out among other Belgians.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy, deep brassy gold, medium whitish head with very nice retention and okay lacing. Nose is big grassiness, some burnt caramel, dried oranges, mild yeasty presence. Mouth is medium bodied, semi-sticky, lightly sweet up front and then becomes rather dry and light bitterness throughout. Caramel, orange peel, hints of white pepper and vanilla toward finish. Tasty.

Apparence: D?une couleur jaune paille opaque, elle est coiffée d?une bonne mousse d?une bonne durée. Effervescence difficile à évaluer, mais semble quasi inexistante.
Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des arômes de malt et des épices.
Saveurs: En bouche, c’est un corps moyen. Au goût, c’est les épices qui attaquent pour être suivit par le malt avant de laisser place à l’amertume du houblon. De durée moyenne, il y a une très légère effervescence.
Style: IPA Style Belge
Format: 341 ml
Taux d?alcool : 7%
