Had a glass of this beer at Cafe Briljant. Very complex and interesting. A mix between a tripel and an IPA. Hopped with Nelson Sauvin which makes it very aromatic with fruittones as grapes, orange and also some herbal effects.. Not extreme bitter (40 ebu) but quite hoppy in taste.

On tap at NHBF, as Briljant 10.40. Hazy golden orange, white head. Aroma of, well, rubber, a bit fruity, grapes. Flavour is light sweet, rubber again, something weird, fruity, alcohol, grapes. Medium bodied. Too young perhaps? This beer had some serious flaws imo, hope to try this again some other time.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy dark orange with creamy chalky white head. Quite an original smells, with typical orange, light spices and brioche base but also lots of soapy, herbal hops. Fun but strange. Warming body, small but fizzy cwrbonation, dead hops. Bitter taste from the start on, but fading out later only to come back in the end. Strange again... not sure whether I like it TBH. Interesting brew though. (On tap at Pint N-H Bierfestival)
