3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis in Utrecht. The beer has a gold-yellow color and a light tinted large head, with a lot of bubbles. The aroma contains a lot of herbs, with tones of coriander. Further flowers and a hint of oranges. The taste is full and strong also dry with tones of walnuts. The finish is soft, with a nice bitterness from the hops. They’ve done a good job with this beer, it reminds me a little of triple beer.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drank with Hans, Vincent and Patrick at Cultuurcafe 19-11-2014. Did not like the beer. Unplesant tripel-like taste. Very much carbonation also, which further diminished the nice tastes and likeability of the beer.

Ottimo esempio di belgian strong ben luppolata, che anche con una forte presenza di lieviti nel guscto, lascia inuire leggere note fruttate e un buon amaro.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Huge creamy off-white head with fantastic lacing. Hazy pale yellow body. Aroma is floral hops, citrus and hay. Farm-like aromas, the yeast reminds of a saison. Very fruity, sweet, fresh and appealing. Mostly sweet on the tongue, followed by a nicely balanced bitterness. Dry finish. Slightly boozy, but never overwhelming.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle served in a pint glass.
A: Pours a very cloudy pale yellow forming a huge white aired and fluffy head. Huge retention. Its foam looks whipped cream, leaving tons of lacings around. Beautiful. Reminds me Duvel in this aspect
S: Very citrus. Orange and lemons. Sweet grains, grassy hops and Belgian yeasts. An authentic Belgian IPA
T: Slightly sweet malts upfront. Strong notes of oranges, orange zest, lemon, grassy hops and Belgian yeasts. A bit bready and earthy too. In overall a dry taste and a stingy but not very strong hoppy bitterness
M: Medium body. Good carbonation. Malty, citrus and hoppy bitter aftertaste
O: Very drinkable. Authentic Belgian IPA. Recommended

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap - fair size creamy looking head, hazy burnt orange color, fairly well balanced aroma and flavor actually, earthy and mildly fruity hops, fair malt, fair Belgian yeasty spice - good overall but did expect a little more to be honest, especially in the hop dept with a name like this
