3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Firefly, Vancouver
Deep blond color; medium sized compact head. Aroma of coarse Belgian yeast, with some paper, spices and oranges; later, vague notes of manure and citrusy hops. Good body strength; strong malt flavor, with a sharp spice/yeast character, followed by the orange and tangerine. Long, strong final, a bit fruity and moderately resiny too.
’t Smisje + Dubbel IPA comes to mind, but this one is more classy. A beer with character.

Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex yeast and sour citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy yeast bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a good beer that exceeded my expectations.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Sweet belgian yeast is the first to assault the senses, followed by some earthy hops in the background. Clear copper with a rich beige head. The belgian yeast is very prominent, with hops adding more bitterness than anything else. Malts are well balanced and overall a good representation of what they were going for.

The flavour has a similar green herbal character to the hops, modest malt base. Average plus bodied palate, modest carbonation. Showing some age possibly? Just okay. 6/3/6/3/15 Bottle via trade with Ferris.
