4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of my favourite beers ever. Looks great with a decorated glass, golden colour and big fluffy head that simply does not disappear. Smells of hops, at least two; one citrus and one spicy. Some yeasty sweetness as well. Maybe malts, but hops dominate. Taste is fresh with hops, fruits, citrus and some bread. Bitterness swells towards the aftertaste that ends dry and hoppy. Impressive that the hops are so distinguishable, given the high volume of alcohol (that was completely hidden by the way). What a delight.

Une belge légèrement houblonnée agréable

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle at home. Amber coloured beer, and a bit hazy too. The collar on top is beautiful rocky and white. A great starter. The nose has some malt and dust hints, and more artificial hops. The taste is nothing refreshing. Light bitter notes, some herbs too, malts. The brew is medium sweet, making this a medium bodied ale (although it counts for a 9.5% alcohol brew!). The bitter ending is fine, but I do noticed some unpleasant candylike flavours too - making this a bit chemical. Good enough for once or twice, yet really nothing exciting.

Hazy blond colour with rich cotton like head. Rich oily hoparoma of grass, herbs, spices and lemon-peels with light sweet malty tone of nectarines and alcohol. Full hoppy flavour of wet grass, lemon-peels and herbs. Quite full body. Long oily bitter aftertaste

On tap at Beer Kitchen in KC. Spicy hops, fruity esters and medium hop bitterness. Light herbal and floral notes round things out. OK.

Premetto che ho bevuto una bottiglia scaduta da un paio di mesi.
Profumo fruttato, spumante, luppoli "terrosi".
Sapore dolce fruttato, vinoso, smorzato dai luppoli sul finale.
Non ho percepito granchè luppoli aromatici, forse l’invecchiamento non ha giovato. Il carattere vinoso, ben presente in aroma e sapore, non rientra tra le mie caratteristiche preferite.

33cl @ bottle. Di certo non una birra estiva e qui l’errore di berla a fine luglio. L’alcol si sente molto, tanto dolce, di sicuro da ribere con temperature più basse.
