Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Hazy orange to dark golden color, average sized off-white head that leaves fair lacing. Smell malts, slightly sweet, slightly floral. Taste is about the same: some malts, lightly yeast, slightly sweet and slightly floral / blossom. Average body, a bit firm carbonation.

3fourths (8103) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2014
From draft at Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Dull hazed gold with a short white head.
Unfinished nose of wort, apple juice, generic fruit esters, with a musty and old-smelling yeast. Decent texture, lush enough in the mouth with good effervescence brightening the experience with hop oil and malt sugar. Lightly phenolic, moderately bitter finish.

JorisPPattyn (7978) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2013
Small rim, veiled pale amber beer. Dry hops, garden herbs. Dry, hoppy, bitter-herbal. Feels very carbonated, rather slick, medium bodied. Nice, but De Ranke can do much better. Nose is all but absent.

sebletitje (6819) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2013
Draft @ Arden BrewFest, merci Manu. Orangée-ambrée, col beige. Arôme donne de suite un bouquet agréable et frais venant des houblons. Le tout oscillant entre fruité, agrumes et herbacé. Palais est sec, note de grains, malt en balance avec ce caractère type de pilsner et caramel, pointe râpeuse du houblon-épice. Le tout tire sur des agrumes subtiles avec ce côté renfermé et encore une amertume qui se manifeste en fin de bouche avec une pointe de grains poussièreux. Une bière qui, comme le dit Manu, oscille entre une amber et IPA. Ici, deuxième bière utilisant ce houblon Mozaic que j’ai eu l’occasion de tester. Ses qualités tant à l’arôme que au goût sont subtiles et complexe et en font un houblon sympa pour un usage multiple.

lusikka (6354) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours an unclear orange colour with a white thick head. Aroma of wet earth, herbs and cream crackers. Flavour of sweet caramel malts, earthy notes, cream crackers, metallic notes, yeast and weak herbs. Light bodied, high carbonation and a dry, malty, off-flavour finish. Messy and yeasty. Not good.

Pours hazy orange color with a small head. Aroma of herbs, some yeast, fruits, mild vegetable notes and soap. Flavor of grass, citric fruits, yeast and nettle. A bit odd aroma. Strong carbonation, somewhat watery palate.
