4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 750ml caged and corked bottle and served in a tulip. This beer poured a cloudy pale golden color with a big, off-white, meringue head. Very slow to settle, leaving behind, thick, bubbly lacing. The was made up of a huge dose of grassy hops, light lemon, citrus, pale malt, and just a bit of graham cracker. The included soft, grassy hops, mellow citrus, a touch of honey, slightly sweet pale malts, and more herbal, earthy hops. Huge hop presence, but not overly bitter. The mouthfeel was full-bodied and lush. Ample carbonation, yet very soft of the tongue. Mostly dry at the finish. Dangerously drinkable! One of the best hoppy Belgians I have tried. The herbal Euro hop profile is a welcome change of pace. Quite tasty!

750ml bottle from the Sam-apostrophe-s in Downers Grove, IL. Pours a hazy yellow body with an explosive, HUGE rocky head. Clumps of lace line the glass. Yeasty nose with a citrusy tartnes, light floral scents, and an underlying pale malty sweetness. Citrus zest and lemon abound in the flavor along with dry herbs, white pepper, and a malty sweetness. Lightly bitter, dry finish. Very appealing to me.

Dark yellow colored with huge thick white head. Strongly yeasty-spicy aroma with sweet orange, nice hops also here. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is even richer with licorice, yeast, spices and some peachy fruitiness. Aftertaste gets bitter with hops and mild alcohol. Overall balanced and excellent beer.

Hazy orange, tiny yeast particles, tiny white head. Aroma strong of citrusy hops, but the taste is explosive. Sure, there plenty of hops, but alcohol and pepper are not my favourite tastes.

On tap at Rich O’s. Good example of a definitely unique style that I have begun to develop a serious liking for – I recommend it to anyone who digs the specific style or Belgians or IPA’s . Thanks Roger for the hook up!
