3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Au Brasseur, Brussels. Pours a very bubbly copper-gold with a massive lasting fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet, hoppy and a bit vegetal (I get canned peas), also grassy and herbal. Flavour’s better and easy to drink, it’s grainy along with a decent amount of hops, though not as hoppy as they proclaim. Alcohol is well hidden, in fact I had no idea the abv was as high as it was. Average bodied. I found this just good, not great.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Belgian strong ale with a good peach / mango flavor. The taste is slightly hoppy and gives a good special taste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small swing top bottle. Hazy medium golden with an incredibly lively white head that collapses into rocky flotsam. Sweet cereal aroma, peppery hops. Chewy cereal malt opens the palate, honey sweetness, apple, pineapple, and light pepper add some hop character. Smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel. I didn’t have a clue that this weighed in at 8.3%.

Hopus was a failure. Nothing offensive by it so i still stays at about a 3 rating but there are NO hops in hopus. Belgian malt licka.
