3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
600ml bottle. Cloudy, orangey golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, mostly lasting, fairly lacing, white head. Hard to describe floral hoppy aroma, notes of unidentifiable petals, imaginable as of pink and lavender colour, a cautious Kristallweizen-like wheaty touch. Taste is slightly sweet, floral hoppy and subdued tropical fruity, leafy bitterness, subtle richness. Exotic.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Cafe Sara, january 1st 2016. Hazy golden body with a small white head. Aroma with subtle orange and grapefruit, mostly wheat and malt. Taste is sweet, light spicy, flowery hops, light bitterness. Sweet caramel finish. This one falls between two chairs, nice elements from both a wit and an IPA, but mixing it up doesn’t really do it any favours. Maybe it’s time to stop the whole "white ipa hype".

Bottle at home that should have been saved for later but boredom lead to more drink. Pale pour. Nose is tropical fruit and yeast. Tastes of melon, mango, honey, floral, and bubblegum., verynlight and yeasty palate. Overall ok and light tropical experience.

75cl bottle pours a hazy gold with some filmy, lacing white head. Nose has straw, grass, lemon peel, mild spice, some stale biscuit. Flavor is a little weaker, light everything - lemon/grist/straw, some soap here. Watery finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2016 On tap at Mondial de la bière Montréal 2015. A hazy, yellow-golden beer with a small, dense, off-white head. Pine cones, resins and some pale malts in the aroma. Orange zest too. It’s dry and full to medium bodied with a quite high but nice carbonation level. Nice bitterness. Piney, resiny and lightly orangey flavor with some pale malts in the back. Lasting hop dominated finish. Refreshing and a tad boring, more interesting on cask I think. Rating: 6-4-6-4-13-3.3. 150611
Cask at Mondial de la bière Montréal 2015. As Les Quatres Surfeurs de l’Apocalypso. It’s an unclear one, orange colored and almost headless. Some off-white bubbles. Oranges, pine cone notes and a touch of malts in the aroma. It’s medium bodied and very soft on the palate, with a nice carbonation level. There’s a decent bitterness in the mouth, with pine cones and resin and a touch of oranges. Some pale malts in the back. A refreshing and tasteful one. 150611

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap sample. Poured clear yellow color with a medium frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy tropical citrus and earthy aroma. Medium to full body with a tingly slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy citrus bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.

Aroma is wheat, tropical fruit and mild funk. The flavor is wheat, tropical fruit, light citrus, malts and a mix of tart and relatively slight bitterness in the finish.

840 ml bottle. Honey gold color with a small white head. Tart citrus hop nose with a yeasty push. Flavor has tropical fruit notes. Hints of mango, lemon and tangerine. Nice citrus and spicy hop finish. Crisp and tart with complex fruity citrus bitterness and Belgian pedigree. Nuff said.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy gold with some sediment. Pillowy head that sticks around. Aroma is fruity, with pear and lychee (as the bottle says!). Something like candied lemon too. Taste opens with a dry, bitter grainy belgiany opening. Maybe a little astringent. Finish quite clean. I am truly baffled by the hawaiian branding on this, but it’s a pleasant thing to drink
