4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy golden orange with a speckled white head. Lots of spicy, noble hop aromas with some bready and caramel notes along with a little fruit - great complexity. Bread, dried papaya, and some hoppy spice. Medium body with medium-high carbonation.
Great example of a Belgian IPA that’s from Belgium.

Bottle, on the most recent occasion as my apero in the remarkable De Buhne, Bruges.i had bottles of this when I was a young beer drinker, almost two decades before this ratebeer business, and always found it intruigingly hoppy. So I was slightly terrified that my taste buds would be deadened in this new world of hoppy beer. Fortunately not. Light golden colour, big white head. Crisp malts, not interfering. Yeasty perfumy fresh noble hop aromas, moreish bitterness, tastes super fresh. Alcohol entirely hidden, scary really, Superb.

Lots of floaties, golden. Nose is Belgian yeast, grassy, herbal hoppy. Taste is similar, on the dry side, somewhat bitter, a bit boozy. Not much to it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Coded out by 2-3 months. Pours a cloudy darker gold with a very tall eggshell head that settles to a thinner ring and film, and leaves some spotty lace. Nose is quite interesting and involves floral hop notes, honey, biscuity dough, earth and hay, some touches of spice, some essences of tropical and pit fruit, some toast. Fairly sweet, decently bitter. Medium bodied, somewhat oily, toward syrupy, decent action, finishing toward dry with toasty malt and floral hops. Still drinking pretty grate despite its age, making me wonder how totally amazing it must be fresh. Refreshing yet quite potent.

Birra dorata estremamente profumata e gradevole con forti sentori di fiori e arance. Il luppolo è deciso ma mai invadente calibrato perfettamente in una birra locale che rende onore alla patria del luppolo. Schiuma persistente, retrogusto piacevolmente amaro che lascia in bocca il ricordo di giardini in fiore. Veramente ottima.
