3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From tap at Moeder Lambic, a gift from the owner, thanks! Italian IPA with coarse, yellowish white, irregular but stable head over a misty orange blonde beer with amber hue. Aroma of orange peel, peach, vanilla, fresh pineapple, white bread, chamomille and other field flowers, white grape peel, rosewater and banana. Fruity taste, peach, pineapple and orange peel ’citrusness’, very light sourish touch, medium carbo, sweet and honeyish maltiness, elegant and light, soft bitter hoppy finish, very floral and citrussy, more aromatic than deeply bittering, with subtle malt and yeastiness piercing through. Very pleasant and well-made IPA, one of the more soft, aromatic ones, probably intended as an English style example rather than an American style one.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle. Pours hazy light amber with a huge, creamy long lasting light beige head. Very beautiful. Aroma is sweet malts, some sweet ripe fruit, citrus, yeast, light resin that quickly fades away and a somehow unpleasant acidic note. Taste is sweet malts, some sweet fruitiness again, some nice rustic flavors. Light vegetal bitter finish. Medium body, medium carbonation.
