2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Couleur jaune dorée, légère mousse blanche. Nez houblonné un peu fruité. Gout houblonné une peu fruité, corps un peu petillant aspirine, amertume en fin de bouche, assez seche. Pas une IPA, pas une super belge, en dessous des Dieu du ciel habituelles.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is slightly hoppy florals at first that are immediately overcome by the typical belgian fruity essence.
Pour is pale straw with a thick, foamy head that lingers well. At once bitter and sweet with medium body and pleasantly balanced carbonation. Lots of Belgian flair in the middle palate which yields interestingly to the dry hops on the back end.
Hmm, mouth is dry, better have another taste...

"Very floral and spicy aroma. More malt and Belgian yeast in the flavor, though some citrusy hops hang around too. Pretty nicely done. Dry, spicy finish."

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.
