Sampled draft 15 cl.@ Modeste 2013. Hazy orange with a creamy white head. Nose is very sweet orange, esp. very sweet orange peel with some light BE esters. Taste is bitter upfront, overall dominated by an excess of BE yeast, sweet orange, candy sugar, caramel, more citrus & some esters in the back. BE yeast dominates heavily. Yeast comes across in the body obv. it is also a bit fizzy. Neither memorable or impressive but reaonably solid BSBA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013 Rich, raw honey coloured golden body with a very hazy glow and a thick, four centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of hay, grass, alcohol, honeysuckle, hops and a bunch of light spices - very nice. Medium-bodied; Slightly sour flavour at first with a bunch of hops and grain noticeable, some light yeast and barnyardie funk going on and finishing with a subdued yet noticeable spice and pepper flavour. Aftertaste is nice and complex with a faint hint of the yeast and funk with a good sweetness from honey and caster sugar and a bit of drying hops as well. Overall, a nice beer, of course - from belgium and well worth the local trip across the border! I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from de Hop Duvel in Gent, Belgium earlier this morning for €1,55 sampled in my hotel room here in Luxembourg City, Luxembourg on 16-August-2013.
