Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours a cloudy golden with a huge and lively off-white head with an excellent retention leaving quite some lacework. Fresh citrusy hops dominate the aroma. Solid body, carbonation is moderate and pleasant. Very, very fruity a little subtle yeast, again some citrusy hops leaving a heavy bitterness. For once a nice hybrid of a Belgian beer with American hops. 140212

Flaske: Orange klar øl med et kæmpe skumhoved. Duften er belgisk gær, trippel, men med en god del citrus og humle der lægger sig som et lag ovenpå. Meget bitter smag der fungere fint med den sødlige trippel smag. I det hele taget en yderst velkomponeret øl der lige mangler det sidste for at blive verdensklasse.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Rustico in Alexandria. Served in a tulip.
Pours a very, very hazy peach color with a two-finger white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. Fairly ugly. The nose has some slight Cascade hops and a bit of Belgian yeast, though there’s something off. Here, it smells and subsequently tastes fairly hoppy, but more in the way of something that’s been overly dry-hopped, or some sludge that still has hop-pellet remnants in it.
Nothing too impressive. Medium body with moderate bitterness. I couldn’t get into this one.

Hazy orange-copper colored with a medium, pillowy, vanilla ice cream colored head that stays. Decent lacing. Aroma of flowers, citrus, sweet bread and grapes. The taste is really yeasty with some pale malt and mild hop flavors. Medium bodied and dry. Not bad, but kind of weak.
