Interesting beer. It has the Belgian sweetness and a lot of hops. Nice balance to it. Aroma starts with the sweetness along with the bitterness. Flavor starts sweet with some fruit and the Belgian notes. The Simcoe pops in for a bitter refreshing finish.

Tasty, very hoppy DIPA. Very easy to drink. Could perhaps do with a bit more bitterness on the finish though.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This Belgian is world class IMO. I have not had a bad beer yet from Troubadour.
The aroma is of citrus notes,floral, spicy, clean.
Pours a nice orange hue with a large frothy head that stays in the glass to the end, with nice lacing.
The taste hits with citrus and some malt, biscuit, bready, yeasty notes with the signature Belgian spice bite.
Wonderful taste overall, warming alcohol in the stomach.
Overall a world class Belgian.
Enjoy one today!

Poured into a snifter.
4.0 A: Opaque orange brown color. Two and a half finges of pillowy white head. Retention is very good and moderate amounts of irregular lacing is left behind.
5.0 S: Smells absolutely wonderful. Very sugary and fruity. Candied pineapple, candied mango, candied orange, candied papaya. Lemongrass, flowers, hay, clove and pepper spice. Even the slightest tinge of grassy funkiness. Easily on par with the best of the US.
4.0 T: Taste is very good as well, but fails to live up to the masterful nose. The taste is Belgian to the core. Peppery yeast spiciness with clove undertones. Hay, peach fruitiness, bready yeastiness. The fruits of the nose are here, but orders of magnitude less potent. Barely any bitterness initially, but some does manifest in the finish. Woody funkiness. Booze is well hidden.
4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good spritzy carbonation. Good creaminess. Nice.
4.0 D: Surprisingly a very good beer. Incredible nose and solid everywhere else.
