COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schiuma compatta, frastagliata, candida e persistente. Dorata con "vibrazioni" verdi. Naso intenso, prorompente, quasi aggressivo, con un netto fruttato maturo di pesca noce bianca, uva spina e litchi quasi a coprire una delicata speziatura. in bocca l’attacco è dissetante grazie al corpo leggero e all’assenza di zuccheri residui. Finale secco, tagliente e prolungato.

MarcoGori (10) - ITALY - NOV 13, 2014
Birra di ispirazione belga con tanto citra in aroma e un amaro importante, una delle mie birre preferite

Bov (9683) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 12, 2014
from Fork&Bottle - pours a cloudy blond beer under a long lasting white foam; fair hoppy aroma of pineapples and litchies, lemongrass; medium-bodied, fresh, assertive and tasty; fairly bitter with some tart acidity; very dry and long fruity hoppiness (star fruits and pineapple) - a great and impressively accurate beer

kermis (5607) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2014
Draft at Hoppy Days. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, saison yeast, pepper. Flavour is light sweet and light moderate bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

EdKing (1967) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle at the Italian Bar, GBBF 2014. Light golden rusty orange, medium white head. Nose is lots of lemon peel, zesty lemon, some bitter grapefruit, lots of hop, and a bit of yeast ester or saison yeast aroma. Cereal grain malt character. Taste is sharp bitter lemon rind, sweetness, hop bitter, some pine, some of that saison yeast character, and then on the finish it’s got some nettle and pine. Decent body to it, full flavoured.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - JUL 20, 2014
A citrus accented IPA. A bit greener and leafier than modern American versions with a certain endearing quality, without ever sinking it’s hooks in.

MartinT (8024) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Passionfruit and lemon whirl around bread crumbs until herbal resins take control of the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam laces around the hazy shiny blond.
-It doesn’t feel as airy, dry and carbonated as their Blond, but it’s still very drinkable and refreshing.
-There is a lot of yeast in their bottles. Be careful when pouring.
-This gets more and more endearing with every sip.
-Green peppercorns appear in the finish.

Bottle.

EvilCat (87) - FRANCE - JUL 18, 2014
Bouteille. La cervoise91. Robe dorée coiffée d’une mousse blanche dense. Nez citronné et malté. Bouche fraiche, maltée et fruitée sur le pamplemousse avec une belle note florale de houblon. Finale zestée et amère avec une pointe d’épices. Une bière rafraichissante très agréable. "She’s fresh so fresh, exciting"...

Bottle. Big grapefruit aroma, lots of citrus, taste is less fruity. Light skunkiness. Quite refreshing, feels more ipa like than belg.
