3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy orange body with a fluffy, well-lasting head that leaves some lacing on the glass. The nose has sweet aromas of flowers, banana, resin, honey and honey melon.The taste is quite sweet and is balanced by a mildly bitter finish that lingers on the palate. Carbonation is quite soft and the mouthfeel is fairly rich and creamy. This is quite interesting, not a traditional DIPA but a very nice and original interpretation. Although it’s on the sweet side, it isn’t out of balance and the alcohol is well hidden, I like it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Brasserie Thiriez in Esquelbecq. Lightly hazed amber with a tall white head.
Sharp hoppy aroma seems to suggest English noble more than high acid American strains: nutty, herbal, earthy, woody, etc. Slightly oxidized, faint banana esters and red apple cara malt plainness with a subtle sesame seed toastiness, poorly matched by an odd BO sweat note that may be the cat-piss Simcoe and Citra. Medium-full body, sweet, syrupy, low carbonation, hoppy and bitter, oily and green and vegetal in the finish.

India Pale Ale is not my type of beer, but this is fairly made. Lovers of this type should have a go.

Bottle. Orange hazy. Oranges, yeastyness on nose. Some citrus, candy, florals, corn. And malts. Full bodied, light oily. Sour oranges, or orange zest, sweet pale malts. Some belgyness. Bit messy, but ok. Not my thing tho. Too messy, too much pale malty corn.
