3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drank this under label ’Jack’s Precious IPA’, ratebeer tells me it’s the same beer. Gollem has a bar in the same city where I drank Jack’s, so that would make sense.
Rating might go up as soon as I try a second one, we thought we got the last 2 glasses the bartender was able to squeeze out of the barrel. My beer tasted even more bitter than my friend’s, so it must have been bottoming out.
Good beer nonetheless, it was extremely agressive, but I like bitter. It was also completely opaque, which was fascinating but odd for an IPA. Could all be due to basically drinking pure residue. Tonight I’m going back to that bar, it can only get better from here. Taste deScription will follow as soon as I had a second glass.

Faint smell and taste of hops. In other words not very ipa-ish. More like a wheat beer with some hoppy-ness

Very murky, large cappuccino like head. Amazingly nice fermentation aromas, balancing and being awesome together with modern hops. One thebthe most pillowy heads, like typically only find on Czech lagers. Yummy yummy juicy bitterness. Wow, honestly very impressive beer! (On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Gollem Amstelstraat. Hazy, golden yellow with a medium large, creamy, slowly diminishing, tan to white head. Sweetish, fruity-grassy aroma of lemon, passion fruity and tangerine. Slightly bitter, citrusy-grassy taste of lemon, mango and pineapple, followed by a short, slightly bitter finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, flat. Quite nice, less hoppy and creamier than expected, but very refreshing. Good!
