2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light cloudy lemonade yellow. Obnoxious white head won’t let the beer show through. Malty nose. Is this supposed to be a belgian? A little bit of hop resin. A confused beer, where yhe hops or the malt can dominate and win. The foamy head is the mosr entertaining partf of this beer. The body is quite heavy and the finish... pucker.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden orange with a foamy white head... Citrus and floral aroma... Flavor is citrus sweetness, alcohol content is fairly apparent, not much bitterness on the palate... Don’t really know why they call it hopus, there’s only a hint of bitterness on the finish... Decent

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Open All Hours, Keswick. Foaming and livey ale, with plenty of sugary sweetness. Some faintly burnt caramel underlying, with a bit of butterscotch and toffee apple in there too. Warming finish, with some apple flavour and a touch of copper in the roof of the mouth.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a low, frothy white head, somewhat lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, straw), heavy hop (flowers, perfume, citrus), moderate yeast (dough, earth) with notes of pear, pear, pineapple, and oak. Flavor is well balanced malt and hops with a lingering bitterness and good yeast complexity. Medium carbonation, medium body, and a dry, spicy finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. An almost clear beer, golden in color, and topped by a big, lasting off-white head with quite big bubbles. Some lacings occur. The aroma is sweetish and slightly toffee-ish. Hops and fruityness gives it some balance. The flavor is fruity, silghtly citrusy and sugary. Some bitterness and alcohol warmth are also fitted in. Medium to full body. Bitter finish. Not a very interesting one, rather mediocre actually. 100327

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge white lasting head. Hazy yellow body with carbonation. Floral fruity hoppy apple aroma with toffee and grass notes. Dry-bitter apple toffee and grass taste with floral soft metal notes. Light body. Edgy mouthfeel. Dry metaly floral herbal aftertaste with soft metal and resin notes. Not bad, but mouthfeel and taste didn’t really fit together. They need to work more on this one. (0.33l bottle, de Biertempel, Brugge.)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep golden pour with a thick sticky white head. The nose has lots of honey along with a light malt sweetness. Spicy with a bit of light grassiness as well. Stone fruit and a kiss of spice on the finish. Pretty nice, if not all that outstanding.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle with a pop top. Pours blond with a huge head. Lovely lacing. Aroma of grapefruit. Also has the dry and bitter finish of a grapefruit, but grounded in an earthy palate. There’s a middleground of real sweetness in the taste that fades to metallic-bitter finish. Plenty going on.
