Hazy blong with a nice white foam. Spicy aroma, hops, citruses. Rather bitter taste, fine carbon, a medium body. Hops and citruses palate, spices and very bitter aftertaste. Enjoyable! B@H

Almost more like an IPA in bitterness, 85 IBUs. Nothing new that it offers, but it is pretty good to drink. Bottle from De Zwart in Wilnis.

Holy crap that’s a lot of foam. In the bottle, in the glass, in your mouth. Maintains a 4 inch pillowy head. Belgian yeast, clove and wood aroma and eathy, belgian yeast flavor. Pretty good if you can deal with the growing foam upon drinking.

Bottle @ home Erik. Golden haze. Small head. Diacetyl in the nose blended with alcoholic. Sharp sweet bitterness and fresh dry finish. Love this brew for its complexity and drink ability. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Color oro carico, con tanta schiuma bianca che fatica a scendere. Decisamente presenti sia al naso che al palato, lievito e luppolo. Abbastanza amara per una Belgian ale, ha un finale secco.

330ml bottle bought at Craftissmo in Tsim Sha Tsui East.

Looks: Cloudy hazy golden apricot colour with a ring of dirt-like yeast sediments; Two finger head and crumpety white foam which lasts for 3 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with slight carbonation.

Aroma: Fragrant and sweet malt, with vanilla, lemon peels, moderate plums, light cinnamon, sugar, light earth, strong Bel yeast and very light grass.

Taste: Close to medium sweet Pilsener malt, with grapefruit peels, yellow fruits, light floral, molasses, strong spices, resins, strong yeast, strong lime, strong bitter hops and strong grass.

Body: Medium body. Slick and creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Pretty rich maltyness in a thick and smoothie background. Hops-driven with strong citrus peels, ooze, strong spices and earth. Very bitter kicks which balance the sweetness perfectly. Limey ending. Very nice!

Hoppiness: All Fuggles and Hellertau - lemon peels, light cinnamon, and earth in nose. Grapefruit peels, yellow fruits, light floral, strong spices, resins, strong lime and sharp grass in taste; Bitterness is strong for a lasting, high astringent bitter sweet finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Creamy and very hoppy bitter to mouth.

Comments: This is a Belgian Pale Ale with strong English and German hops characters - limey, resiny, spicy and bitter, mixed with smooth rich maltyness and good looks. It really spunky and kick ass. Love it!

DandyWolfFloyd (1020) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2016
Aroma - caramel , Belgian yeast, alcohol, fig, and spice. Appearance - the body is a hazy goldenrod yellow, with great nucleation. The head is off-white and well over 2+" foamy, and takes a long time to settle. Taste - slight caramel, touch of pungent hops, coriander, Belgian yeast, touch of fig, and some oak. Palate - medium body, slight oil, average carbonation, and a slight bitter and slight booze finish.

Has a nice hazy blond colour. Aroma is quite strong with bready yeast. Flavour is bitter and tangy. Just a hint of citrus peel in the finish next to a hop bitter aftertaste.

Rottende bloemen als aroma, met wat hooi en snuifje citrus. Smaak is wat minder fris dan verwacht, ook iets licht rottends, met wat bitterzoet. Beetje smooth maar algeheel wat gemiddeld.

Tap at Beer Circus. Sweet, bitter, some lemon, meh. Nest just doesn’t do it for me, all their beers are mediocre at most.
