>> Thank you Travlr for the share. Tremendous head and lace on a hazy, glowing orange pour. Nose is funky, cheesecloth, brie cheese, a bit stale. Taste is somewhat plastic, chalky, dusty, mildly cheesy. Not too bitter. Not so bad. No Galaxy hop nose remains.
<!> heavy yeast in suspension, stale/cheesy hops

3oz pour at Max’s Belgian Fest 2014. Pours a hazy orange with a ring of white head. Nose has a ton of sugar, grapefruit, orange. Flavor is sweet, pithy, orange, tangerine, candy. Pithy finish. Decent.

On tap at Thirsty Monks during the 2014 RBWG. Pours a clear orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a strong sharp citrus note up front with a bit of pine and grain backing. Flavor is more booze with a sweet grain note but has bitter citrus coming through in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught@BBF 02/2014. Ideally orange-coloured with a nice BE head. The Galaxy hop fruitiness oddly seems to even out the tripel yeast bitterness in this one, making for a combined, hard-to-locate peach aroma & herbal punch on a modern dry DIPA palate, ending on a long spicy, slightly heady finish - creating another fascinating BE DIPA/tripel crossover.

A hazed golden amber ale with a thin lacing light mocha head. In aroma, lots of hope, lightly pungent and catty, resinous, very nice. In mouth, a nice caramel malt with floral and catty hops , light alcohol, very nice. On tap at Cambrinus.

Mid palate sweet followed by nice bitter finish.
