750ml brown bottle, corked. Cloudy orange/amber coloured with a solid, tall creamy head. Some soapy lacing. Aroma has some orange-like sweetness up front, some hemp notes, brett. Malt has some nutty qualities, earthy, woody, grapefruit and floral hop flavours. Medium bitter finish, lasting grapefruit hops aftertaste. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Great mix of bitterness and brett, which to me equals a dangerously drinkable, and no sign of the 8% alcohol.

I get a lot of strong acidic hops in the nose, I like just a bit (or tons and tons!) more cascade though. Creamy dark brown looking, it somehow manages to be light and clear around the edges and dark and smokey looking in the middle. Great lacing. Strong, strong hop flavour, only later on does the malt and belgan yeast really set in. So many things going on on paper, its almost overload in your mouth. Well balanced for so many extreme flavours.

Pours lovely from the bottle with a light orange hue. Nice floral aroma with some underlying notes of tartnesss. Refreshing to drink!

butelka, warka do 05/05/21. lekko metnawe czy tam mocno opalizujace, jasno bursztynowe, z dosc kosmiczna, nieco mydlana, prawie biala piana. Aromaty - dziczyzna. ale jaka fajna, miodowo-konska, owocowo-stajenna, bardzo mila w odbiorze, jest tez nieco bananow, cytrusow, jakich innych owocow swojskich (jablka czy tam gruszki czy cus... a wiem, melon miodowy, ten slodki!). w ustach pelne, dosc wysoko wysycone, slodkie, nadal bardzo funky w tym dosc slodko-owocowo-miodowym stylu. Generalnie wrazenie jest, ze piwo ma rownowage duzo bardziej w strone slodowo-drozdzowa, a mimo to chmielowe aromaty sa ewidentnie obecne. goryczka niewysoka, i nieco przyprawowa. takie tez (nieco przyprawowe ale tez znow funky na slodko) - posmaki. Mimo, ze dosc konsystentne, nadal odswiezajace. Sumarycznie: Orval na sterydach. Klasa.

Draught at Plan B, Copenhagen
Light amber color; big creamy head. Wonderful aroma, hoppy, creamy, with delicate fruits (peaches, mango, sweet oranges). Medium body strength, but quite round mouthfeel, with very good, sweetish toffee flavor, perfectly complemented by the fruity hops. The final is well balanced as well, less powerful than the flavor, maybe missing some sweetness for my taste; in the end there is an aftertaste of Belgian yeast. Excellent beer.

Rating #1100!! And appropriate, considering it’s also Memorial Day! Anyway, pours a cloudy brown/orange with a thick off-white head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of tropical fruits and floral hops. Smells like an IPA, an awesome IPA at that! Flavor is not a fruity but has a nice bitter finish. Definitely quite hoppy with some sweet caramel malt. Nothing Belgian about this one to me. This is a great beer--I really enjoyed this one!

Superb hop aroma. Golden color with a small white head. Very nice balanced body with strong hop flavors. Very nice and balanced hop and bitter palate. Very nice.

Amber color, slightly hazy due to the bottle conditioning. A really big off-white head with both thick and creamy, and airy, parts. Very good head retention and beautiful chunky lacings.
A very fascinating smell. Fresh fruity hop aromas (grapefruit, gooseberries, kiwi fruit) mix with pine-needles and fairly big dose of earthy brett. Here is also some grass, resin and a biscuity backbone. This smell is fantastic.
The taste is even better than the smell, absolutely amazing. Very tasty hop flavors of exotic fruits, citric notes, pine-needles, resins and slightly raw floral notes. A big brett character sits side by side with the hops. Earth, yeast, some caramel. In the finish, there is a rather big and very pleasant bitterness coupled with a great combination of chewy malts, spicy and peppery hops and faint mineral notes.
Medium body, very creamy with soft carbonation. The beer slides oh so easily down the throat.
The taste of this one was as close to beer heaven is it gets, I guess. The rather aggressive hop profile and equally aggressive brett character works fantastic together and the beer is just really really taste. Almost ridiculously easy to drink.
