In bottle. Pours a golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of pineapple, passion fruit, caramel and lemon. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. Alcohol is well balanced. OK.

Bottle, mi orge, mi houblon. Pours copper, slightly hazy, thick bubbly white head. Nose is biscuity malt, yeasty freshness, bread, slight candied dark fruit. Hoppiness adds freshness. Mouth is initially smooth malty, touch of lactic vanilla, spice, amarillo and bread. Touch metallic, thin-ish end with warm maltiness, cocoa powder, nice dry finish. Quite nice really.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle from Mi Orge Mi Houblon, Arlon, Belgium!!!
The beer in the glass is light copper colored with a creamy, off-white, long-lasting head. It smells wonderful hoppy and fruity, much Amarillo, in the background slightly yeasty and sourish. Starts with lots of aroma hops, fruity and sweet, with a pleasant bitterness. The middle part is very spicy and hoppy, yeasty and slightly caramelly-roasty. Goes into a hoppy-bitter, and yeasty-caramelly finish!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
murky gold orange, thin small bubbled white head. Nose is heavy peach candy and sand, mineral with with dusty esters and lighted pepper. High attenuated flavor, front showing dough and earthy hops, mod with bubblegum esters and hops to dial down sweetness, dry finish showing light dough and very dusty grain. Nice, controlled balance despite slight over sweetness. Thin body, could use boost to balance sweetness and ester heavy.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL thanks to beerandblues2. Hazed deeper gold pour with small, dense off-white head. Nice, sheets of lace. Nose is interesting: raw grainy, near radish and parsnip vegetal, sharp root vegetables but not gross DMS cabbage. Moves to sweet orange, grassy hops, hay/straw grain. Taste is dry, hoppy, nice orange sorbet sweetness with a longer, grassy bitter finish. Quite nice. Refreshing, clean and dry. A Ryan Artuso beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by BeerandBlues2: Pours a clear deep bronze with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a mild floral hoppy nose with a touch of biscuity malt. Starts with effervescent carbonation and clean soft maltiness with a smooth bittering hop balance before a drier crisp finish. Pretty drinkable and well-balanced, but nothing out of the ordinary.
