Cerveza rubia clara un poco turbia. Con espuma blanca persistente que se pega a la copa. Sabor floral y ligeramente cítrico y amargo. Muy buena combinación cuerpo/gas.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaska från Ölbutikken Köpenhamn. Halmgul vätska med ett högt massivt skum. Fruktig, estrig doft. Fräsch. Pepprig, fyllig och söt smak som ganska fort möter en stram beska. Lite oväntat av en belgare. Eldig munkänsla med medellång eftersmak.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml cork bottle bought at Craftissmo in Tsim Sha Tsui East.
Looks: Cloudy hazy golden honey colour with substantial dirt-like yeast sediments; Two and a half finger head with crumpety white foam which last for 2 minutes; Excellent, very sticky lacing and quite fizzy carbonation.
Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet bready malt and hops which can be smelt a feet away, with strong vanilla, banana, sugar, grapefruit zest, citrus, yellow fruits, light alcohol, Bel yeast and light herbal grass.
Taste: Mid to light sweet full malt, with light metallic, ester, caramel, faint banana, light molasses, light resin, Bel yeast, light earth, pretty strong herbs, light lime and light grassy hops.
Body: Mid to full. Thick and oozy palate.
Mouth Feel: A strong Belgian with full maltyness, very lightly sweetened, moderate Bel yeast, and un-banana ester. Pretty much dominated by Noble hops-induced herbs, resin and earth, but all are pretty restrained. Give you a feeling of a Victorian-era fair lady enjoying afternoon area, tight and polite!
Booze: at 8%, this is extremely well hidden. Good!
Hoppiness: It’s all Noble - citrus, yellow fruit and herb nose, light earth, resin, lime and herbal taste. Bitterness is minimal, but so is the sweetness for a fairly low-fi bitter sweet finish.
After Taste: Dry and oozy. Quite easy to mouth.
Comments: This is a very restrained but quite tasty strong Belgian. I wouldn’t go as far calling this a Belgian IPA because the Noble hops in this brew is very notable but also pretty restrained in aroma and taste as if it was strait-jacketed. I would like to see its Belgian as well as the hop elements to be more liberal and strong. Make no mistake, this is tasty and quality stuff, but also very conservative. More English than Belgian in feel, you have been advised.

Bottle. Enormous gusher. Pours cloudy yellow with abundant airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit, hops, malt, and flowers. Bitter, hoppy flavour, enriched by regular notes of malt, fruit, caramel, and alcohol. Rough finish, with traces of aniseed. Nice.

Bottle, colour amber, long lasting head in my chimay glass. A kind of mix between IPA abd yeasty belgian beer. Quite bitter after taste.
Another quite enjoyable beer from this brewery.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Quite hoppy and bitter beer, best decribed as a Belgian IPA. Royal on the hops, but with a yeasty and sweetish body.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy straw with huge white head. Yeast, malts, lots of fruits: some citrus, apple, banana. Taste is mainly malty sweetness with a little bitter at the end. Medium bodied, alsmot creamy feel. Nice stuff, but it wants to be a bit of everything it seems.
