3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
This might be the sweetest IPA I’ve ever had. Which makes me wonder if a category should be created for Belgian ipas. So unique. Pours a gorgeous orange honey color. Great lacing. Aromas are vanilla, candy corn, honey, flowers. Lots of Belgian candy aromas. Flavors follow suit. Intensely sweet followed by a bitterness at the end. This is good. You can taste the quality...but maybe just a touch too sweet for me considering its supposed to be an IPA. Still pretty awesome.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very cool brew. Not as hoppy as I would have liked but you cant always get what you want. The pour is a bright, sparkling orange and golden colour with a thick frothy bright white head. The nose is fresh and floral with big citrus and spicy hop notes. Nice toasted malt vs hop balance in the flavour with a moderate pine resin on the finish. The Belgian yeast notes are subtle and moderate but work well with this brew.

Un bon arôme nous saisit le nez dès l’ouverture de la bouteille accompagnée d’un beau coussin de mousse. Doux goût acre.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml brown bottle. Deep gold in colour, hazy. Head is white, tight beaded and creamy with lots of lace rings in the glass. Belgian yeast up front in the aroma, a bit spicy with some fruity banana like esters, bit of citrus peel and sweetish floral notes. Taste has sweet malt, cereal, fruity notes, citrus, cloves, yeast. Hop bite emerges late, floral notes and a bit herbal. Bitterness is medium and lingers. Overall an interesting beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml capped bottle pours a hazy golden color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is yeasty with some herbal and citrus notes. Taste is a herbal and citrus hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness and a dry yeasty finish. A well done Belgian style IPA that is definitely worth tasting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Couleur dorée-orangées avec un beau col mousseux. Nez typique de levure belge d’épices et d’agrumes. En bouche c’est une IPA belge typique fidèle au style qui ne révolutionne rien: levure belge,agrumes,épices sur une moyenne amertume... Rien a dire de plus...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. Poured a cloudy straw colour with a huge rocky white head, so carbonated that it continued to bubble out the top of the bottle after the first pour. Citrusy hop aroma with some yeast. Medium body with very high carbonation and a sticky dry finish. Flavour of tart hops, a bit grassy with some yeasty notes and some banana peel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy golden/orange with low white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of belgian yeast, fruits, citrus, malt. Taste is of belgian yeast, citrus, bitterness, malt, english-feeling hops, earth, soil. Palate: Medium-high carbonation. Medium body. Overall: Decent. Good balance. Surprisingly english-feeling hop-wise (wich aint my favorite kind). I’d like to see this one lighter on yeast and with a clearer west coast touch. Still a good product as it is, but not outstanding for me. It is possible that the belgian yeast doesnt fit well with those hops.
