3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
One out of the three Single Hops made for Delhaize in 2012 in limited quantities of 4000 bottles each; IBU of 30. Thick, sticky, stable, snow white head, misty orange blond colour. Aroma has grassy and leafy hops, orange peel, bread, ginger, caramel; rounded, refreshing palate, citrus frehsness, some peach, lightly oily mouthfeel, yeasty touch, caramelly and bready malts, spicy and lightly peppery, English hop bitterness in the finish, medium long. I liked the Cascade version somewhat better but still enjoyed this.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
75 Cl bottle @ home from Delhaize. Darker blond to amber coloured beer with some light carbonation and a medium to small off white head. Sweet fruity and slightly bitter hinted hoppy aroma. Nicely balanced. Medium to full palate. Finish is bitter, slightly yeasty hoppy hinted with some short sweet fruity hints. Nice aroma, Taste is not completely balanced but still ok.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
75 cl bottle - pours golden with white head. Nose is slightly vegetal with some hoppiness to it (perhaps poured it too cold). Taste is rather one-sided on the grassy hopiness, no real balance.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good yellowish, stable head with some lace over hazed golden-orange beer. Very earthy hops’ nose, cream crackers, very dry malts. Again earthy notes; the rest being EU-hops on dry malts and some toasted malts; dry nuts. Quite carbonated with a long titillating throatfeel, medium bodied, bit slick. Rather better than expected, being not a big fan of E.K.G., and even less when they’re actually from Bachten-de-Kuppe... Thanks to Stef!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Hasselt Beer Festival, Hasselt, Limburg, Belgium 12.11.11 in company of Loz, Jackie, Simon and David. Pours a clearer gold than the Cascade. Warmth in the mouth and a light hoppy burn which surprised me on the tongue. This beer struggles a little when consumed alongside the more strident hoppier offerings of the Cascade and Nelson Sauvin but it does ok. Its good but the characteristics are much harder to define, there is a light citric fruitiness but the yeast and malts are much more up front in this beer. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4
