COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops abound in this triple Belgian ale, brewed with three times the normal amount of pilsner-malt to build on plenty of raw rich material, and an 'over the edge' amount of Hallertau and Aurora hops. Just to make it perfect with a great hoppy nose, a full round complex mouth-feel and a lingering beautiful hoppy aftertaste, in perfect balance with the glow of the 9.5 % alcohol by volume. Refermented in the keg (keg conditioned) to infuse the softness and easy drinkability of the natural carbonation. Brewery Van Steenberge craftsmanship by excellence!

House beer for Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh.

fonefan (35959) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2009
Draught @ ZBF 2009, St.-Niklaas, Belgium.
Clear medium to dark yellow color with a large, frothy to creamy, good lacing, fully lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, moderate hoppy, citrus, citrus shell, medicine, urine-like. Flavor is moderate sweet, light acidic and heavy shell bitter with a long duration. Infected IMO. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20090307]

thewolf (11233) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2009
Tap @ ZBF 2009.
Pours muddy yellow with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has oranges, light sweet maltiness. High carbonation, very dry mouthfeel. Nice flavour, much better than the limited aroma. The oranges and lemons mix well with the malts and there a fine, dry finish to it. Okay.

Koelschtrinker (11035) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 3, 2011
Hopfig-säuerlicher Geruch. Hopfiger vollmundiger Antrunk, angenehm bitter. Der Hopfen bleibt sehr trocken, erst spät bildet sich eine wenig fruchtige Note, etwas nach Apfelsine. IM Abgang ebenfalls sehr hopfig, harmonisch. 12/12/11/11//11

JorisPPattyn (8031) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2009
Draught Good, dense, yellowish head over clear yellow-orange beer. Alcohol, goose shit, bamboo shoots, sweet and V.S. yeast esters. Very bitter, ink-like taste, ending sweeter, with more yeast features. Well-bodied, well-carbonated. Long hoppy aftertaste. OK! the bitterness is there. PLEASE, now use to learn US-hops. Then you’ll get the real thing. I had a first taste before this one, where the beer was clearly infected, soursmelling. Second sample was perfectly OK - pipes?

Draught at Zythos Beer Festival, March 7th and 8th 09 Pours a clear lemony/light gold colour with an impressive whipped ice cream style head. Great hoppy nose and a good dose of yeast. Nice stinging bitterness which is soon calmed down by a lovely vein of sweetness rushing through. Great beer! A6 A4 F8 P4 OV16 3.8

<i>A Mes rate: Draught at Brugge Fest.</i>
Solid gold with a thick white head and superb condition. A good looking beer. Lovely floral hop aroma with some strong yet adorable notes of straw. Gloriously bitter and aromatic on the nose. Flavour... A Belgian double IPA. Whowouldathunkit??? Great hops, excellent malt base with just the right level of chewiness and some slight bacon but it’s gorgeous. Awesome bitter finish with a lovely lick of sweetness. Bloody glorious.
