Light yelllow, light orange coloured beer. Creamy white head..Very hoppy smell, smell of citrus, lemmon gras. Dry taste, not like Orval. Very drinkable. in spite of the 9,5 percentage. Hoppy tast lasts long in the mouth.Good beer!

Inoven (268) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2015
Flesje al enige tijd geleden gekocht. Deze kerstavond met familie gedronken. Geur is zeer hoppig. Goudgeel bier enigszins troebel. Stevig wit schuim. Fruitig en bitter in de smaak. Hop-smaak blijf lang in de mond hangen. Lekker bier om rustig van te genieten.

Very enjoyable beer, a little bit sweet, taste of hops is very distinct but subtle. Leaves great after taste. Great beer overall!

Kauge (1557) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 17, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2016 Bottle from Beer Express. BB 09/2017. Pours hazy pale golden with a big white frothy head. The aroma is standard (... actually sub-par) pale BSA, yeasty-fruity-doughy, but with more than a bit of bandaid. Tastes mellow sweet, finishing with hollow bitterness and a scraping chlorophenolic off-note. Watery. Carbonation near flat. Alcohol so present. How on earth has this achieved 93/100?

Edit: same batch, 8 months later. Chunks of sediment despite having stood still for a long time. Again a slight off-note in the aroma; same with flavour. Scraping on the palate. Carbonation much more active than before. Alcohol shines through. Yea it ain’t too good... BTW it’s now 92/100.

Reminds me more of Belg Tripel- very malty, sharp/sugary sweet and thick mouthfeel. Close to full body, some flowers (i think from variety of syrup) in aroma. Like classy tripel no + or -, good drinkability. Hops? Hmm, I think they forgot to add propper amount, medium to light bitterness.
