Bonne odeur de houblon. Goût qui Ressemble au fruit de la passion. Assez amère. Bière rafraichissante.

First : Most of you won’t like this. This is a proper specialty beer for fans of actual bitterness. Nose from bottle : Classic citrus notes, you can play the "fruit guessing game". It’s impossible to tell that this beer has such a low ABV just by smelling it. It smells "real". Taste : The first sip reveals this as a light beer, but don’t be fooled. It’s very strong in taste, the bitterness immediately rushes through you and the non-existing malts give even more room to the dry bitterness of the hops. It has an almost unrivaled finish in terms of intensity and length. The bitter notes that linger in your mouth are truly excellent and will please every lover of true bitterness. Sadly it’s an imported beer so I can’t make this my "house beer" but I totally would. The low ABV paired with the still very intense aroma make this an enjoyable beer without getting you drunk. But I want to repeat : This is mostly just bitter. That’s it. If you want malts and complex hops and even a remote hint of sweetness, this is not the beer for you! But if you love bitterness and look for a light beer : THIS IS IT!

JulienHuxley (3592) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle from De Molen shop. Hazy gold pour with gigantic chunks of crap, should have poured a bit more carefully. Aroma is hoppy, really leafy, some notes that remind me definitely of pickles but also lemon rind, grass. Taste is bitter, leafy hoppiness, vegetal green sort of bitterness, again something pickle like, maybe chlorophyl, strange but not bad. Palate is light bodied, good carbonation, good body considering the very low ABV. Decent.

King_Alex_II (243) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 31, 2014
A lot of herbes and a bit of abricots in the nose. The taste is dominated by herb infused bitterness. Too much bitterness for me.

SinH4 (478) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 31, 2014
Cloudy yellow color with small head. Aroma is pure Sorachi Ace - dill! Herbal-tea, lemongrass, apricots. Taste is bitter and earthy-grassy. Very bitter-herbal finish, like chewing on a leaf of grass. Light body. Not a "good" beer, but interesting and good for your knowledge. And damn, the ABV is very low.

ruigo (1374) - PORTUGAL - DEC 20, 2014
33cl bottle. Hazy pale yellow colour with floating particles and no head. Soft carbonation and light to medium body. Fruity, grassy and floral aroma. Taste is strange at first, bitter finish and long bitter and dry aftertaste. Overall, interesting but odd beer.

bergstaden (1472) - Røros, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2014
Golden with a white head - Hoppy aroma - Nice malt body to support the hops - Hops with some bitterness in the finish - Refreshing and easy drinking and it tastes good

Excellente IPA/bitter malgré le faible % d’alcool. Gout persistant en bouche. Agréable surprise.

kerenmk (2788) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle at La Fine Mousse, Paris, September 2014. Clear gold with a big foamy white head. Herbal aroma - pine and rosemary. Bitter,dry and astringent in the mouth, medium-bodied, green and a little soapy finish.
