3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle with a bottled on date of 03/12/13 with a best before of 03/2014. Pours with a lightly hazed straw yellow hue with a massive foamy white head that lasts and leaves good lace. Aromas are spicy and floral hops with noticeable juicy and fruity yeast esters and some peppery phenols that mesh well with the hop character. Some tropical fruit, mild isoamyl acetate. Lightly bready and straw like malt notes. Flavors are dry with a medium bitterness. Fruit flavors from both hops and yeast. An assertive, but not unbalanced bitterness. Bready and toasty malt notes, banana, tropical fruit. A bit grassy and straw like. Esters are a touch high and isoamyl acetate forward for my taste, albeit it is still a very nice beer. Very lively carbonation, pretty dry, mild acidity. Good.

From the bottle. Hazy with white head. Quite spicy and flavorful. Aroma has a bit of earthiness. Definite sharp bite, bigger than standard. Well dine.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep and murky pour with big white head on top. Aroma of floral hop and some fruit, zest. Flavor is a bit earthy, peppery, orange peel, peach and malt now. It is light but definitely complex.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, poured into a snifter. The aroma is a floral, sweet tropical note that hits the nose in abundance. It’s a clear, straw colored beer with a dense white soap head that has moderate lacing and good retention. The taste is a medium bittersweet. The medium body has an oily texture has a fuzzy carbonation with citrus and tropical fruit, and bread for flavors. The finish has a crisp spice quality, followed quickly by a sweet tropical juice (primarily pineapple) that leads to an aftertaste that’s clean with a faint hint of some bread.

I had it from the bottle. The aroma is floral hops. The taste is hops, Belgian yeast, spice, and a touch of citrus. It’s dry and crisp. This was nice and refreshing, until it warmed. It’s a complex summer beer without being filling.

Bouteille b.b. 03.2016. Une robe jaune trouble. Le premier nez est superbe, invitant avec du blé. La bouche est herbeuse avec des notes de poussière. J’aurais aimé plus de définition dans cette bière qui me semble brouillonne. Merci Vincent pour cette dégustation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very nice beer: cloudy effervescent pour. Fragrant floral hops aroma laced with citrus. Bone dry on the palate, lingering aftertaste. Refreshing drink on a hot afternoon, but light on the mouth feel and a little unsatisfying finally.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fruity, floral aroma. Golden hazy color with frothy white head. Fair retention. Soft clean palate. Dry finish. Softer earthy, floral, and fruity flavors than aroma would lead you to believe which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Solid overall.
