Aroma is yeasty and hoppy, the hops are not very fruity, but they are clearly there. Flavour is the same as the nose, Clear notes of yeast and hops, the malt backbone is subdued. Mouthfeel is average and in total this is a competent brew.

Pours a hazy and amber beer with a white head. The aroma is malt and hops with citrus, tropical fruit and peach. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness with some bitterness. Overall an average beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Pours slightly hazy light amber with two fingers of thick, white head. Aroma is floral and fruity, with deep tones of mango, apricot, light citrus, some yeast. Almost perfumey and saison like. Taste is lightly sweet with only a faint bitterness in the finish. Body is light and smooth with soft to average carbonation.
Edit: tried a large bottle and I’d say it improves the beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A yeasty-fruity, hoppy, slightly spicy and semi-rustic golden belgian ale. Very good
How: Tap at City Pub, Göteborg Sweden
The look: Partly cloudy golden body topped by a persistent small white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass
In long: Nose is medium hoppy, a bit yeasty with some rustic notes, fruity esters (oranges, more…) and spicy notes. Taste is a relatively fruity (mix of fresh light color fruits and dried fruits) with a nice yeast presence that I would describe as semi-rustic, almost Saison-ish. There is a generous amount of hops adding grassy, iced-tea and citrus fruits flavors. A spicy sensation. A medium intensity bitterness. This is a Belgian-IPA hybrid well done. Not sure if it is because I had the beer on tap fresh in Scandinavia and never the bottle, but I thought this was better than the poor ratings indicate. I’m going against the grain here, and if you think my ratings don’t make any sense you should see my life choices.

Bottle. Poured cloudy yellow color with an average to large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy fruit, earthy hop and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a friend.
