3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy orange gold in color. Nice blend of fruity Belgian triple qualities with that of an IPA. Good balance. But not really what I’m looking for in a brew. I want something more to stand out out. Feels a bit muddled. Kind of weird. But worth seeking out to try.

Cask at American beer fest White Horse, London. Deep orange pour. Fruity Belgian aroma. An American influenced IPA. Sweet, hoppy nicely balanced, enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2009 Cask/handpump at the White Horse, Parson’s Green. Dark orange, slightly cloudy, pineapple, resin and honey on the nose, smooth body turns very bitter on the finish. A strange mixture - a Belgian style slightly sour beer, made in an American style and then served as an English cask ale!

On tap at Stone Pilot night. Cloudy golden in color. Aromas of belgian yeast and citrus. Medium mouthfeel. Good solid tasty hoppiness with some balanced sweetness. Some earthy grassy quality. Great finish to a very good Belgian style IPA. Definitely prefer this over the filtered bottled version.

1st rating, on tap at the world bistro today with wetherel, dr.bill, and later doubleo. Gotta say I like this more than the original and its just different, the more I drank of it the more I liked it. Pours gold with no head. Nose is hoppy, with belgian yeast. Taste is sweet, hoppy and well balanced.
