4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: Poured with an average-sized head that is white and bubbly. Body is a dark orange, and extremely clear with just the slightest evidence of haze.
S: Lots of yeast and bread coming through here. The aroma also has a fruitiness to it that is quite pleasant.
T: Sweet, fruity, and yeast, with a very slight twinge of bitterness in there as well. The finish is dry, with a slight alcohol warmth as well.
M: Medium-bodied, creamy, with average carbonation.
D: A very good beer, but I don’t know if I would have recognized it as a Belgian IPA; mind you, I’ve never had this style before, and I would expect their IPAs to be less in-your-face then many in North America.

A nice surprise. I was expecting much less than what this glass of ale had in store. Nice color...laces nicely. Pleasant flavor. High ABV isn’t detectable. No bitter. A fine glass of ale.

Mange procenter uden at den virker spritet. Den mangler måske lidt sødme for at opveje styrken.
