3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very huge, dense, yellowish head over faintly veiled, very carbonated yellow beer. White, candi sugar, garden herbs, pale malts, bit toasted too. Bitterish, very (EU) hoppy, straw, dry hopbales, again this lightly toasted streak, giving a fleeting idea of lemoncake. Wheatimpression. Slight astringency, bit burning MF. Spritzy carbonation, rather light body. An IPA with EU hops? Nearly if not utterly impossible - but this is a pretty good attempt. Like it.

Cloudy gold with a frothy, white, lacy, lasting head. Smells of citrus-lemon, grass, fruity and herbal hops right away. Very IPA. A great blend of hops. Medium oily body with medium carbonation. Nice malty base with lots of hops, peaches, citrus and grass bitterness on the finish. A great IPA/Belgian Ale mix. Super easy to drink and refreshing.

Aroma is quite fresh and citrusy. Flavour is quite like a spicy, peppery white beer combined with the strong bitter hop finish of an IPA.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is citric, flowery, yeast and some biscuit. Taste is fresh with some malt, a bit citric and a bitter finish. High carbo which suits the beer well, but it could be a bit less.
