4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2oz bottle, shared by joet. Thanks, Joe! Pours light brassy with a halo of mixed bubbles. Base malt aroma and flavor, with a tinny nose with expressive yeast character, then blooms into huge, piney/resiny American hops flavors with moderate bitterness, and coalesces into a very dry finish. It works.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle from Saveur-Biere.com. Hazy golden with a white head. Perfumy, floral fruity nose, quite intensive. Starts also perfumy, also with floral-fruity flavours. Not too sweet, the malty background is very supportive to all the hops. Lingering, fruity-floral finish. Good!

33 cl bottle @ PBF Ⅸ, BBE 18.05.2014
A total gusher. Once the foam clears out the aroma has apricot and some grainy malt. Flavour has apricot and some grassy hops. Not an IPA, but a decent Belgian ale,

330 ml bottle @ PBF IX. Pours a cloudy golden colour with a small head. Aroma of caramel, some herbs and grainy notes.

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.
