3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl flip-top bottle from Carrefour. Looks the part with a clear golden body and crisp white head, sports a pleasant aroma but ultimately not as complex and interesting as the ambrée from the same brewery. Still, a solid beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Restobières, Brussels. Pours cloudy amber with airy white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with pronounced hoppy notes and touches of yeast. Sweetish flavour of fruit and malt, complemented by regular and clear bitter, hoppy notes and touches of citrus. Bitter and citric aftertaste. A well-balanced and enjoyable beer.

Poured well. Orangey- blond in colour with a white head which quickly subsided. Lovely floral aroma. Slight haze due to my pour does not detract from this very attractive beer. Full bodied with lots of hop to give a nice bitter taste backed up with malt. Overall a very good beer, recommended.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml flip-top bottle bought at Belgian Beer International in Tsuen Wan.
Looks: Cloudy hazy dull golden orange with lots of dirt-like yeast sediments; One finger head crumpety white foams which lasts for 3 minutes. Very good sticky lacing and notable small carbonation.
Aroma: Fragrant and creamy with tangerine, light grapefruit, caramel, vanilla, light plums, raisins, light sugar, strong Bel yeast, malt and light herbs.
Taste: Mid to light sweet taste of Ale malt, with light grapefruit, orange, light molasses, resin, dry biscuits, Bel yeast, light spices, lime, grass, and sharp bitter hops.
Body: Mid to light. Dry, creamy and oozy palate.
Mouth Feel: A rather modest Belgian IPA - body is close to full, quite creamy, good Ale maltyness, moderate sweetness, and lots of dry-hopping for a solid neat grapefruit, light orange, resin and bitter hoppy taste. Not big but pretty neat.
Hoppiness: Good tangerine, light grapefruit and herbal nose. Light citrus, orange, ooze, light spice, lime and grass taste. IPA-like sharp bitterness, strong but not too intense, for a lasting and astringent long finish. Good!
After Taste: Dry, biscuity and nice bitter to mouth.
Comments: This is a moderate Belgian IPA in terms of aroma, taste, and palate. Not as expressive as De Dolle Arabier or Chouffe Houblon Tripel IPA, yet its simple and nice tangerine and resiny hoppy characters are nice enough to please. A neat one, but a bit overpriced, though.
