From tap @ "Den Hemel". Light orange color with a snow white head. Very hoppy nose (new world hops), gives away exotic fruit (orange peel, mango). Taste is fruity, with a very nice hop bitterness. Some yeast, orange peel, carbonated brew. Well balanced, refreshing, easy drinker. but bit wattery body, lacking some punch, otherwise great beer. Like this! What a surprise.

Very strong scent, too strong for me personally. Beautiful amberish colour.

Aroma is quite hoppy and nice with the sorachi ace bubble gum aroma. Taste begins bitter and nice, but then turns to muddled sweetness and cat pee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PriorL (1759) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2014
On tap at Trollekelder Gent. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, nice stable white head. NOSE: sweet, hops, some yeast there, some bitterness. TASTE: sweet again, caramel noticeable in a way, sorachi ace and citra? for this is almost like a mix from Duvel Tripel hop 2012 and 2013. Very nice and fresh in a way, but then again quite flat and maybe even boring. Hard to say. Beer was served quite cold, after warming up a little, wasn’t that good anymore.

7/III/14 - on tap @ De Trollekelder (Gent) - BB: n/a (2014-254)

Clear dark blond tot orange beer, big creamy white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: fruity, peaches, spicy yeast touch, sweet, bit sugary, hint of banana, for some reason the smell reminds me of an English blond ale. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet and sugary start, peach candy, bit of citrus, then a bit malty, hay, soft bitterness. Aftertaste: pretty fruity, peach candy, sweet, some citrus, bit grassy, luckily there’s some hops in it, but overall too sweet. Some counter balance for the Vedett IPA and Duvel Tripel Hop?

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 On tap @Bierhuyske. Cloudy yellow. Hardly any aroma nor taste, really wattery. Tastes like water with a little flavour. Real disappointment.

Thx! to Belgbeergeek. Sampled draft @ ‘t Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Hazy orange, little white head. Very weak and above all watery with some plastic and floral hop notes, bitterness is low and touch herbal as well. I have no idea what happened here, this is weak & watery and disappointing at best. These guys make “Chouffe Houblon Dobbelen IPA Tripel” so they know how to make a lovely hoppy Belgian hybrid whatever beer so what happened here?

Draft @ Antwaerps Bierhuyske Pours fuzzy blonde , Foam is very small .and white and fades fast . Smell is grainy, reminds a lot to houblon . Low carbo , bitter taste . It tastes like a lighter version of Houblon , tiny bit more aroma , but not too much . Taste is moslty bitter, combined with the grainy maltyness of Houblon . Tasty stuff !
