4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from 650ml bottle, clear golden amber colour. Grapefruit and juicy, ripe peach on the nose. Mild grapefruit, ripe peach again and maybe a little orange peel to the taste, just enough carbonation to tickle the tongue. Perfect mouthfeel. It’s like a hoppy E.S.B. but with Belgian yeast. Very interesting, incredibly tasty, a good place for the hop head and the belgian lover to meet in the middle and share a good beer.

Draught at the Great Japan Beer Festival in Osaka (7/13/2013). Big funky nose, manure-level yeast and hopping. Great flavor movement throughout: tart-bitter / grapefruit in mid & final / finishes mildly sweet with little tracks of alcohol. Very good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber/copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, spicy yeast, some pale and caramel malts, and hints of fruits. Flavor the same with a nice blend of the hoppiness and Belgian attributes. Average texture. A good, hoppy, Belgian beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A great beer overall. The pour has a glowing, beautiful reddish orange with a thin white head that lingers. The nose has a noted aromatic and floral dry hop with big yeast aromas and estery citrus. Beautiful tropical fruits are noted subtly on the palate with grapefruit and a hint of pineapple. Strong Belgian yeast and flavour with honey and a light toasted wheat malt. Beautiful fruits with a floral hop including a mild hop spice. Warm boozy finish. Just a nice strong Belgian brew.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A break from the poor ass review tour. Bought this today. Better be good at 11$. Bigfoot fight. Fragrant floral, oranges, yeasty bite and mellow pepper here and there, Rrgf, it’s ok. Taste. Meh. Alcohol and annoyance. Peppermint, pepper, yeast, US influence is not enough, tons of hops, spicy, mean citrus, good things that are not balanced even remotely. Pull this back to 8.5% and maybe it works. NOT WORTH THE COIN.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle- Pours hazy golden with a one finger white head. Aroma is hoppy, tropical fruits, pine, bitter. The taste is the same, this is definitely hopped up to IPA status, like a Belgo IPA imperialized. Body is medium full and carbonation is high. As it warms some caramel malt presents itself, very disappointing, started out so good.
