3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Anima belga in un corpo extra-luppolato! Merita attenzione per le note floreali che sguazzano nell’amaro come driadi in uno stagno. Leggermente spigoloso il sentore alcolico che fa perno sugli strascichi dolciastri appesantendoli. Tutto sommato molto buona!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
At a tasting, thanks tom, big bubbley head, , murky deep yellow, greyish colour, aroma of herbs and flowers, some honey and hints of citrus and rose petals in the back, flavour of herbal tea with fruitiness, strong and a touch coarse grapefruit bitterness. Nice and quite interesting but just as touch too sweet.

Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, fruits, spices, and especially hops. Nice marriage of Belgian yeast and (American) hoppiness, I enjoyed this one very much.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
8% bottle from Rakuten, about 450 yen. A gusher that poured a slightly cloudy honey gold with a thick head of foam that quickly dissipated. The aroma is Belgian yeast, grapes, graham & a touch of spice. Nice stuff! Hop Ruiter has a full body, spice, pepper, yeast fruity notes, some biscuits in the middle & with a bit of a hop bite in the finish. I think there’s some coriander in this...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 8%
Pours a beer with a clear body, bright golden yellow colour and a thick head on top, snow white in colour, with very good retention and heavy lacing left on the glass.
Aroma of yeast, fruity, indeed a bit of funk, very refreshing and appealing.
Taste follows the aroma actually, fruity with peach notes, yeast, malts and the same funkiness of the aroma, balancing the sweetness well with a touch of sourness. A little bit of bitterness on the aftertaste.
Medium thick body, good carbonation.
Overall very good!
