0,5l bottle. Pours hazy pale golden with a awesome head. The aroma from this beer is so awesome, fresh hops and blegian yeast in perfect matrimony. The same goes for the flavors. One of my top 10 favorites!

Bière qui sent très fort le houblon. Le goût est aussi très houblonné. typique d’une IPA. L’arrière goût n’est pas agressif mais présent.

Svesse (6234) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2014
(Draught at Beer Temple, Amsterdam, 20 Aug 2014) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with peaches, citrus, earthy/spicy yeast and grassy hops. Malty spicy taste with notes of bread, citrus, peaches, coriander, earthy hints of yeast and spicy hops in a dry finish with a generous bitterness. More than medium body, quite dry. Tasty and quite complex. Nice one.

Bottle from notes. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have herbal hops, a splash of grapefruit, grass, pale malts, lightly toasted bread, caramel, interesting beer, easy to drink.

popery (1451) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 16, 2014
The beer is a light orange-yellow color. Quite cloudy. The head is large and white, fairly rocky. Sticks to the walls of the glass well. The aroma is lemongrass, lime, grape hop flavors. It’s all bright and sweet. Fresh, clean malt character. The yeast is a bit in the background but adds a pleasantly earthy saison note. Mildly dry taste, a bit sweeter than expected. There’s a good deal of hop flavor, lightly juicy with a sharp lime peel edge. It finishes up dry and yeasty. Rather refreshing. Just a bit more sweetness than I’d like. Light-ish mouthfeel. Normal carbonation for the style.
