Nice IPA but nothing more. Nose is very promising, but beer doesn’t really deliver. Short finish, and poor foam make this an IPA that does not really stand up against similar IPA´s.

Not long ago, the Duvel Triple Hop of the same brewery took the lead of my taste ranking - so I had huge expectations! And the first impression is also positive: full, dry and fruity. The hops strike but don’t hurt. The very complex taste takes you on a journey through peaches and apricot plantations, dried plum and several hints of exotic fruit. Very nice and not over-hopped. On the other hand, the finish is somehow short, only the hop dryness is glued to your palate, all the fruity notes fade very quickly. The body is medium. This IPA is more accessible to the wide public than the Duvel Triple Hop. Still, it’s a hop-bomb with a wonderful variaty of exotic fruit tastes. A nice aperitif. And even if Moortgat recommends to dink it at 3°C, try it at 6°C, you’ll get even more fruit !

A really nice and light IPA. Might very well replace shitty lagers as a default beer, because the taste is very light. Great beer.

harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Clear gold amber with a slight haze lasting thin white head. Grapefruit hoppy aroma. To be honest I wasn’t expecting much but what I got was a pleasantly drinkable grapefruit hoppy ipa. Decent to drinkable.

shadylane (4) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 9, 2014 does not count
Pours clear deep golden colour with a thick white head which lingers nicely. Fairly light aroma with notes of citrus, tropical fruit and cut grass. Moderate hop flavour which is sustained in the mouth and evolves as the beer warms. Same notes as the aroma including some spiciness. Light malt sweetness with flavours of toffee, honey and bread. Dry finish with light bitterness. Medium carbonation and body - belies the 6% ABV. Overall a very tasty and enjoyable beer but not really hoppy enough for an IPA.

Huge thanks Yves for sharing this with us! Poured a lovely, slightly hazy golden/orange body with a small, thick white head. Aroma... hmmm...sweetbread, dusty, slightly herbal, very very light alcohol... not a blast of hops really, but you immediately see that there’s some interesting stuff going on here. Taste... A mix of juicy, citric C-hop notes, orange peel, honey, perfumey, more sweetbread. Ending with a mild bitterness - could use just a tad more, and it’d be great. Not quite Duvel Tripel Hop, but miles ahead of the regular Vedett!

Pine, citric fruits in both smell and taste. Taste is a bit soapy, mostly bitter. Bit thin. Decent nut nog geest.

Aroma stark nach weißen Trauben. Geschmack dann leider relativ wässrig mit schönen Anklängen an weiße Trauben und Kräuter.

Citrusgeruch. Im Geschmack dann äußerst trocken für ein IPA. Bitter, aber keine nachhängende Bittere. Leicht muffig, aber sehr gut.
