Bottle @ DØE meeting. Pours hazy light golden with a white head. Aroma of hops, grapefriut and pine, tart fruit. Taste is much like aroma, hoppy but with a good malt base to balance it. Medium body, low carbonation. Nice and refreshing beer. 190111

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.75l bottle that ogivlado, heavy and me got from the Beershop in Zagreb. Love the label!
Poured a murky but shiny ochre body, with a big lasting thick whtie head, quite great. Agrumey fine sweet nose, slightly creamy. Fine sweet agrumey and grainy dry taste, light bitter hopiness, not as much as expected, but quite balanced with the maltiness. Chalky, aromatic, Very well rounded, slightly too subdued but a pleasant experience. Couple that with excellent drinkablity and the alcohol volume, this is a great Belgian.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
La schiuma è poco compatta e poco persistente, il colore è giallo paglierino tenue. La forzatura di luppolo effettuata su questa birra di 8 gradi è a mio avviso troppo esasperato. Il gusto è difficile e marcato delle varietà più amare di luppolo. Nel complesso il corpo è debole e il tutto risulta mal assemblato....

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Effervescent yellow-gold with a fine, persistent white collar and a veil of sediment, however you pour it. Bright, unusually accented hop aroma; jellied orange accompanied a more pungent, leafy grapefruit streak, lime, hints of US floweriness (Amarillo, Cascade?) and a good pale biscuity malt base. Bright, zesty hops with a generous shaving of lemon and tangerine skin; marmalade on white honeyed toast, crisp fresh bread and cashew finish with a beautifully drinkable saison-like lightness of touch and not a hint of booze. Fresh, pithy hop character balanced with creamy malt and Belgian condition. Excellent.
