Hazy golden color. The aroma is fresh, fruity, pine needles. Dry mouthfeel; tree resins, some malt. Balanced, subtle, original, excellent. Balanced but long final.

stevoj (2320) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Pours like a tripel with a nice towering foamy head. Hops come to the forefront with a nice snap. Aroma gives away the high ABV of this beer. Taste, other than the hops, is malt, bread and a little spiciness. Me likey!

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2013
(Bottled, BBE 21/03/2015) Cloudy yellow-orange with a medium head. Strongly orange-fruity, honey-malty nose with a touch of pear and phenolic alcohol notes. Flavor is orange-lime-fruity with a syrupy-malty, honeyish backbone and some herbal hops with a spicy touch. Quite full-bodied with balanced, medium CO2 and well hidden alcohol. A surprisingly enjoyable and easily drinkable brew, although there may be slight bias as this was my first beer on a Friday afternoon after work. 5447

Beese (2553) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from E.Leclerc, Riberac. Poured a hazy golden colour, with a large, dense white head. Aroma of oranges, flowery hops and Belgian yeast esters. Some zesty citrus in the flavour, with melon and dusty grain. Finish was grassy hop, slight herbal notes and straw.

shrubber85 (7942) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle. Apple/melon malt and alcohol aroma. Hazy pale yellow color with huge head and mild effervescence. Mildly sweet apple malt and moderately astringent alcohol flavor. Moderate carbonation - easy drinking for a beer this strong.
