Hazy gold beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is soft with fine carbonation. Airy creamy malt. Nice resinous hops. Sweet floral notes and grapefruit marmalade. Whisper of tropical fruits. Finishes soft and creamy and dry. Resinous aftertaste. Good stuff.

fiulijn (16395) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 24, 2012
Bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris; bb Aug 2013, batch 306
Cloudy amber color with large creamy head, persistent. The aroma is nice, extremely spicy (cloves, coriander, gingerbread). Full bodied, with sweet malt flavor, followed by an expected and very strong spice character, and good bitterness level; some astringency in the end, from the spicy yeast.
Atypical, unexpected, very good.

harrisoni (14996) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Brum. My first French dipa? It’s got some Belgian influence. Some heat. It’s fine, not a great dipa. it’s got some good hop and some good bitterness on finish and it’s not over the top, some Belgian yeast I think, some sweetness some syrupiness. A Flanders DIPA definitely.

Bottle during the Semi-Final Tasting at my place, London. Thanks to Paul! Pours hazy gold with a medium white foam head. Nose is caramel, doughy toast, Belgian yeast and sugar. Medium to big sweet flavor with hints of coffee, toasty sugar, yeast. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with toasty malts, a bit of spice, some dried caramel, some dough, yeast, light baked beans. An interesting beer. Pretty dynamic.
