Bouteille swing-top au restaurant. Bière blonde avec une forte effervescence, la mousse est blanche immaculée. Elle dégage de beaux arômes de houblons frais. En bouche la bière est rafraîchissante, agréable, les houblons sont très bons. L’amertume est équilibré.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Pours a classic golden ale body with a rather large, white head. Nose is very tart, with grassy hops and slight vinegar-sour-ish notes. Taste is "au contrere" very sweet, with some sour tones and grassy hops in between. Odd combo that doesn’t really work for me.

Pours out golden, yellow, a bit cloudy. A big white head that holds nice. Smell is earthy and spiceds, hops and citrus, lightly sour. Taste is hoppy, sour-sweet that ends in a dry biterness of the jops. Good hoppy, not overdone. Decent beer.

33 cl bottle, pours golden with a huge white head, excellent retention and lots of lacings, plenty of carbonation, aroma is spicy and yeasty, taste is mostly spicy with some yeast and malt as well, certainly enjoyable but not very complex overall.

330ml bottle at Lowlander, London WC2. Deep gold with a decent, tight white head. Aroma of caramel, floral slightly oily hops and orange. Flavour was also sweet, with a touch of green herb, honey and dryish finish. Good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a just slightly cloudly, dark golden color with a modest, creamy head. Not much carbonation apparent at all. Aroma is quite pleasant. Very strong bready, yeasty smell with notes of earth and citrus. Taste is quite similar, but the citrus aspect is much more vibrant. Hints of bitter lime rise with notes of apple and wood. Texture is generously creamy with adequate carbonation to distribute the flavors nicely. Medium body beer with a nice, medium length bitter apple cider finish.
Not many layers in terms of flavor, but an overall enjoyable beer. I love the raw, bread scents.

The aroma is ginger, citrus. Very nice. The appearance is a hazy yellow, white head. The flavor is ginger, candi sugar, citrus hops. The mouthfeel is on the thin sode of medium. The finish is booze, sugar, citrus. Overly sweet. Not bad at all.

Plenty of hops on the nose but little else. Extra points for being served in a ridiculously tall glass, with plenty of head. A little ostentatious, but memorable for sure. Flavour is a great mix of hops and malts, with a nice sharp finish. It’s a brilliant and extravagant beer.
