3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Because of the explosive head patience is required while pouring this beer. Some solids on the final pour of the 750. Slightly cloudy honey gold color. Massive lacing acing is almost powdery. Aroma is honey, Simcoe hops, grass, and faint spice. While not a big aroma it is nice. This is a well hopped beer. They are citrus, grass, and floral. There is a distinct bitterness that lingers following each sip. It is somewhat acidic and has a peppery zing. Alcohol is not noticed until well into the bottle and it gets spicier as the beer warms. The hops combine to make a delightful beer. Very good.

Tasted at Ale Atlanta. Very hoppy aroma. Smells a little garlicky (in a good way) like Simcoe, but what do I know, the description says othe hops. Lots of bitterness. Nice.

Pours amber with a nice lingering white head. Smells of dry malt, spice, pepper, pine, some citrus, hints of sugar. Tastes grassy and earthy with some peppery splashes and a dry malty finish. One of their best beers.

C’è chi vede questa birra come troppo sbilanciata sull’amaro, io non sono molto d’accordo: cioè, sì, è innegabile che esso sia l’elemento dominante però non è necessariamente una menomazione dovuta alla funzione di preparazione dello zio paperone. Una birra aggressiva, che da bere tutta intera 75cl è un po’ pesante però dà grandi soddisfazioni soprattutto al naso però ho lo stomaco un po’ a rovescio causa antibiotici.

Bottle. Yeast and hop aroma. Hazy golden with a thick white head. Very nice full flavoured body with the typical belgian yeast flavors. Notes of citrus flavours. Very nice complex bitter palate. Very nice beer even if it is a little bit too carbonated for my taste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. A cloudy medium golden beer with a rich, creamy, persistent and lacing white head. The aroma is strongly and nicely hoppy, with notes of grass and flowers. Light spiciness and some fruity notes. The malt and the yeast are present and combined with the hops give a harmonious sensation to the nose. The flavour has not much sweetness and has a crisp, citric hoppiness. Medium body and not much more, lively carbonation, dry long finish with medium to high bitterness, lightly alcoholic. Very good beer, enough complex with excellent clean bitterness and high drinkability.
