3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Mikkeller & Friends. Looks deep orange and cloudy in the glass this. It also has a small islandy white top that’s leaving some small lacing down the sides of the glass. Mild nose. Traces of yeast and a little bit of salty red berries. Lingon berries perhaps? Mild but nice. Tastes nice as well. Quite on the sweet side this. Light oily in the mouth and it’s softly carbonated. Dandelion bitterness but without the sharp edge. It’s actually one of the more pleasant Belgian ales I’ve had in quite some while. 11.01.2014

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ tasting, courtesy of dEnk. Pours a clear golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is fairly yeasty, hoppy and carries some citric influences in the background. Really average. Flavor has some light fruits, yeast and is overall quite bitter. Nice, light bitter, short aftertaste. Not too impressive, but enjoyable beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Korngul, uklar med voldsom futt. Skumlaget dekker nesten hele glasset, her må man bruke god tid under sjenking. Aroma av humle og sitrus, samt en anelse gjær (som ikke trekker ned inntrykket). Medium kullsyre. Frisk smak og en lang, passe bitter ettersmak.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml brown bottle with a synthetic cork, poured into a Duvel Tulip glass. Appearance is cloudy straw colored with a large frothy beige head, that when reduced left some lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, apricots, orange and lemon peels. Flavours of grapefruit, apricots, orange and lemon peels. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is light-medium bodied, somewhat thin texture and average carbonation. The flavour is dominated by sharp citrus, with little malts to back it up, not what I had expected considering the back of the label says "Belgian-style Pale Ale".

Not a huge omnipollo fan personally and i think this one is slightly overrated.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from SB. Golden clear. I could pretty much copy-paste what RexTalionis wrote- just opening the bottle filled the vicinity with a vibrant fresh meadowy summer feel. A delicate, finely cured, honey touch, that smooths into fragrant soft noble hoppyness. Pale, slight grainy maltyness and good bitters embrace the palate, ending in a lingering floral finish. There’s balance and beauty in this aromatic drink.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 75 cl, BBE 2015. Pours unclear golden in color with a foamy white head. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Lots of floral and summer meadowy notes in aroma, some light spicyness is present as well. Light notes of citrus, floral notes, easy on the bitterness but some grassyness is present in taste. Easy to drink. Lemon juicyness and tropical ripe fruity softness with a fair amount of grassy bitterness in aftertaste. Easily one of the better Belgian ales I’ve tasted lately.
