Cloudy light amber, white froth. Malty aroma with some citrus and yeasty notes. Flavour has malt, yeast and notes of orange. Perhaps slightly grassy but otherwise not particularly hoppy. Onedimensional but certainly drinkable.

Dorada miel, turbia. Aroma herbal ligeramente ácido. En boca es cremosa y de claro predominio malteado, acaramelado. Buen contrapunto amargo y ligeramente ácido. Bebible y agradable.

Cristobal37 (534) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 24, 2016
Fresh hoppy tropical fruit aroma. Slightly hazy golden with a good finger of head. The taste is nice and hoppy with a bit of fruitiness. Apparently the beer commemorates a long tradition of using hops to spice a beer. Much better than the murder hop ipas that clog the market today. Otherwise its a hop forward belgian ale and quite nice.

Pours a clear golden, with a sticky white head. Smells like a hopped up pilsner. Bitter taste, with notes of pilsnrr and citrus hops. Dry and sharp aftertaste. Refreshing.

Nice hoppy beer, somewhere in between an IPA and a classic Belgian Ale. Refreshing with a nice aftertaste.

HOME (20160101): 30 cl bottle. BB 17.07.17. A yellow, cloudy beer with a good, thin white foam layer. Aroma is somewhat malty (Biscuit), Fruity (pear, esters/red fruit) an slightly hoppy (not so fresh). Small sweetness in taste with malty (grain-like) in the begin. Aftertaste is slightly hoppy with citrus-like end. Somewhat biscuit. The taste could be more fresh.
