4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (33 cl) from Etre Gourmet. Cloudy amber with a large rocky off-white head. Fruity almond malt aroma with some orange/floral hops, and some vague band aid phenols. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation. Semi-dry to dry, medium bitterness. Very interesting belgian; not enough hoppy and bitter to be put into the DIPA category though.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Notes from 4Q 10, and I forget where I got this one, or whether it was draft or bottled. Turbid orange pour with 2-finger white head. Looks good. Nose is hopcitrus, malt, tropical fruit. Tastes very caramelly, with orange zesty citrus, hops, and more caramelly notes late, with solid hops throughout. Solid.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is full of fruit and belgian yeast with a hint of hops. Appearance is a deep golden/orange color. Taste is Belgian triple first with a hop finish. I enjoy the addition of the bitterness from the hops and the creativity they have used to brew this. Good not great, and I will not purchase it again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz(?) bottle served in a tulip. Pour is a hazy, pale orange with three fingers of slightly off-white pillowy foam on top; retention is good with this brew and the show of lacing is a very pretty crown. Nose is rock candy, oranges, bananas, Belgian yeast, cloves, and definitive bready/caramel malt. Taste is orange rinds, figs, hops, perfume, and yeast which leads into a sweat caramel malt finish that still holds resinous hop notes. I wasn’t sure what to expect from a Belgian triple IPA, but this was quite good. Unlike American versions, this doesn’t deliver a hop overload, but the hops are definitely identifiable from start to finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours cloudy orange with a rich beige head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor that is soon overwhelmed by hop bitterness. A nicely brewed DIPA, not as sweet as most.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle via glouglouburp- cheers Dany- Pouts a muddy/hazzy apricot colour with a few floaty chunkies. One finger white head, minor amt of lacing. Nose- quite fruity, some iced tea notes, bready and yeast. Taste- floral hops, light citrus, then very bready with some yeast spice. A fresher example would have great balance of hop bitter and belgian sweet me thinks. Thick bodied with a vigorous carbonation- bit of booze heat as it slides down. Nice beer- would like to try again
