3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden and little hazy. Beer seems to be too carbonated, since it comes out of the bottle while opening. Aroma has a lot of citrus and twigs. There is a little of grass, but I see a grapefruit garden when smelling this. TAste has strong grapefruit notes, twigs, wood and a little clay. Palate is well carbonated, hoppiness is medium, but palate finishes too quickly. Nice IPA, with little pilsner notes, and this has strong grapefruit notes.

Bottle 33 cl, BBE 04/2014. Pours pale golden in color with a foamy head. Citrus, ripe garden fruits and some floral notes in aroma. Feels quite the summer flowery one this.A bit of christmas spicyness and some boozy notes in taste. Some yeasty notes, bit of spices and sweetish marzipan in taste as well. Sweet, boozy finish, guess it’s game over.

Flavour is medium-sweet, floral, light fruity, apples, malts, alcohol, hint of yeast, nice grassy and light citrussy bitter finish. Medium-bodied, firm carbonation. Reminded me a lot of Duvel. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased at Village de la Biere in Strasbourg, FR; enjoyed on a Friday late afternoon after a long work week. Appearance is a pretty cloudy dark gold with a very rich white head that laces to the glass. Aroma of Belgian yeast, clove, citrus hops, smell is soft but nice. Taste goes down with a light bitterness, clove comes out a bit more in the flavor, there is a bit of a maltiness to it as well and it is actually quite a bit thick. Overall pretty decent brew. Enjoyed the label art!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shiny golden body with small bubbles streaming upwards to create an off white head. Very moderate aroma, light grassy, pale malts. Refined, but a bit of a disappointment to be honest. Taste is also more soft, light sugar and refined and with a herbal aftertaste. Simple malts define this brew. Not too special, and I did expect something special from this brewer. Maybe the next one will be again. Really nice label though! (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hale orange with a medium, white head. Aroma is Belgian hops, floweriness, light plastic. Spicy as well. Taste is semidry with spice, apple and pear, the floweriness of Belgian hops. Dries up on the finish with yeast, marzipan caramel and some nettles. Fairly full and quite a bit of carbonation. Yet another one of those French IPAs.

Bottle. Pours a light cloudy golden orange with two fingers of white head. Aroma is mostly peach and a tiny bit of orange.
