3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a slightly veiled straw with obvious sediments and a thick, very resilient white head. Aroma is pear, peach and vanilla. Flavor is peach, pear, dusty, malty, peppery, minty. Finish is somewhat herbal, a tad bit of bitterness with notes of grapefruit here and there. Very refreshing and drinkable. Medium body, average to strong carbonation. Great Summer ale.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 Nice seasonal beer with a beautiful nose. The first time I had it I was completely overwhelmed but I was quite disappointed on the followings tastings...The finish is a bit too bitter and I think it is because 5.2% is too soft for so much hoppyness... It’s though a good refreshing summer beer and who could resist to this wonderful and beautiful man on the label?

Light hazy, deep golden, rich cream head. Aromatic hops, very fresh, honey. Tastes like licking a spoon of honey and balancing with hoppy bitterness. Extremely pleasant.

Faktiskt ganska slätstruket får jag tyvärr konstatera. Absolut drickbart, men inget som fastnar i minnet.

Belgian stagionale dorata con schiuma abbondante bianca. Al naso erbacea, speziata e un po agrumata. In bocca molto beverina e piacevole con una bilanciatura leggermente acida. Il sapore floreale e speziato risulta molto rotodo e per niente invadente rendendo questa birra rinfrescante e per tutti gusti. Finale pulito. Molto consigliata!!!

Aroma is clove, lemon grass, floral yeast and light sweet malts. Taste is light sweet malts with slight tartiness that mellows out. Appearance is a clear gold body with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Draft at SIB07. Decent an one of the first around Belgian IPAs. Straw filled with floral hop notes. Straightforward but good!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Spring ale with yellowish white, creamy, sticky, very stable head and warm orange blonde colour, cloudy. Gentle aroma of banana, orange, pear, honey, yeast, hay, cloves, ginger, chamomille, grassy hops. Fruity, lightly malty taste, subdued sweetness with medium carbo, pure and fully, very subtle sourness, spicier and dryer in the finish ending in an assertive hop bitterishness. Well-balanced, refreshing and one of the best Rulles so far.
