This is awesome. The wheat, oat and rye build the most magnificent body. Sharp medium sweetness that is well balanced but not overtaken by the medium bitterness, some lingering fruitiness in the finish, hops have faded a bit on this bottle but really a great complex malt backing! This is totally delicious with a nice slight alcohol kick. Distinctly Urbain and good.

onceblind (4965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Hazy dark amber with a lush light beige foamy head. Gorgeous sweet yet leafy bitter aroma featuring candi sugar and caramelised wheat, but also leafy earthy hop resins and a touch of red grape. The flavor starts a bit soft and earthy but a bit if orange rind hoppiness starts to come through near the finish with a touch of caramel and dark sweet wheat. A touch boozy and earthy bitter but quite enjoyable.

330ml bottle, pours amber with a white head. Aroma is caramel malt, stewed apple, spicy notes,medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, oily feel, average carbonation, light astringent finish. Very belgian style IPA, not a hop bomb.

Alengrin (2815) - BELGIUM - OCT 16, 2014
IPA made for Monk’s Café Sveävägen in Stockholm and apparently intended as an introduction to the style. Thick, creamy, off-white head on a hazy orange blond beer. Aroma of orange peel, grains, wheaty sourishness, pepper, hay, spicy hops, biscuit, apple; subdued fruity taste with refreshing citrus touch, subtle and delicate honeyish sweetishness, yeasty and grainy with wheat sourishness, rye spiciness and oat fluffiness all there, delicate and long herbal and spicy hoppiness in the finish without becoming agressive or ’biting’. I love agressively hoppy double IPAs but for it is intended to be, this is exceptionally well made, clearly the Struise Brouwers have full control over its taste - as usual.

Ferris (6583) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle - Dark sugars and caramel. Cloudy copper with a rich beige head. Sweet caramel, raisin and little hop notes. Very sweet and Belgian, quite nice but hard to see IPA.

Bit gusher. Pale golden, white foam. Herbal citric aroma. Medium body, average carbonation, citric herbal character with a good clean yeasty hint. I prefer ignis et flamma.
