clear, honey color, earthy pine aroma and flavor from the hops which also give a lingering bitter aftertaste... some lacing but subsides quickly..

Bottle from Bier Huis, Ossett. Clear, pale golden colour. Lasting, white head. Lots of saison yeastiness. Thereís a popcorn saltiness, too. All is well balanced. Taste is grassy dry. Bitterness is light, but welcome. Like this a lot.

This tastes pretty much like I expected it to (which is no bad thing at all!). The yeast leads to a noticable take on the Stone IPA taste. Very good indeed although I prefer the noraml IPA from the same brewery. It is very tasty indeed! :)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with small white head that leaves ok lacing. Aromas of pine, bread dough, sour fruit, cloves and coriander. Medium to heavy sweet, medium bitter and lightly sour taste. Flavor follows aroma but with the lack of cloves and the addition of light caramel. Medium body, average carbonation and a lightly bitter leading to a medium sweet brief finish. Very interesting, nicely balanced brew.

Exactly what you'd imagine if you stuck Belgium and IPA together. Not so awesome though.

Aroma of citrus flavors with orange, sweet smells, bubble gum, and some yeast. Golden in color with small bits of carbonation. Strong flavoring of grapefruit mixed with yeast and rind. It has a bitter, rind, grapefruit bite to it.

Would be a benchmark of the style (albeit not a recognized one as yet). Takes their already excellent IPA and updates it with Belgian yeast. A brilliant innovation and having both side-by-side is a treat not to be missed.
