4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle. Hazy, creamy tan yellow-tan color, big foamy head. Sweet Belgian yeast, candi sugar, bubblegum aroma, not unlike a Tripel or strong Golden Ale. There is some mild bitterness, but this is hardly a Belgian IPA. Either way, the extra hops help to balance out the whole thing, creating a rather likable, complex beer. Some toasty malt shows itself as the beer breathes and mellows. A great beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very, very carbonated and a huge head on the pour. Color is a light amber - almost yellow.
The taste of Belgian yeast is what hits me first, followed by some hops and bitterness which you usually don’t encounter with Belgian ales. There’s some pine or resin notes in the finish. It’s unique, but for some reason, it just leaves me wanting more taste.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Swing top bottle (8,3% ABV). a hazy pale golden beer with a large, fizzy, mostly lasting white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty, lightly to modeartely hoppy with notes of cereals, flowers, herbs, cooked vegetables, alcohol and plastic/metal. The flavour is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly sour, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, lively carbonation, long finish with medium bitterness, moderately to heavily alcoholic. Not so much hop character, not so balanced, not clean and too sugary. Forgettable.

330ml bottle from Country Club Liquors. Nose of floral hops, cloves, corriander, yeast, and light sweet honey notes. Hazy yellow with a big pale yellow head. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, with lots of yeasty breadiness and spices. Decent stuff!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy yellow/brown with a decent sized white head... decent amount of carbonation and nice lacing. Smells nice and fresh, with light hoppy notes and not that much of else. Taste is very hoppy with a subtle alcohol aftertaste, it doesn’t lie with the name of hopus... its kind of like a mix between an IPA and a Tripel, very interesting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sampled on 9/4/09: Pours a bright clear golden bronze with a large clingy-lacing froth of white head. Aroma of sweet pale malt with lots of floral grassy hops and some sugary light fruity esters. Starts with decent fullness and finely dissolved carbonation with a light pale malty sweetness and some grassy citrusy hop bitterness before a smooth, bittersweet finish. Well-balanced and drinkable.

Ködös,sötétebb vörösessárga színe van amit egy olyan méretű hófehér,kemény és kitartó hab takar be mint ha az Alpok hósipkáival akarna versenyezni.Intenzív gyümölcsös,szőlős és édeskés alkoholos illata van.Íze is igencsak kék szőlős és erősen komlós,kesernyés.Felfedezhetők benne még keserű narancs,finom élesztő és ananász jegyek is.Elég sűrű és tele van apró pezsgőszerű buborékokkal.Utóíze olyan mint a reszelt grapefruithéj,gyümölcsös és száraz.Kellemes söröcske a komlósabb főzetek kedvelőinek számára.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Hazy golden colored, big white head. Hoppy nose, some spices, a bit like Duvel. Initially bitter flavor, but later on some artificial sweetness kicks in, very unpleasant. Dry finish. The hoppy background is nice, but this one is too sweet to really enjoy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 19, 2011 33cl bottle with bracket
Poured in two glasses. The beer in the big glass has a clear yellow to golden color and the 2cm sediment left in the bottle poured in the small glass has a very hazy yellow color. The head is huge and leaves very sticky lacing.
The aroma is sweet malty with some spices and hops. Taste is sweet malty with a large amount of fresh hops creating a nice bitterness. The aftertaste is sweet hoppy and dry bitter.
A good belgian strong ale.
