3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(tap @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas) Golden indeed, very slightly hazy, but still nicely shining. Head is not very persistent. Aroma is grainy (cereals) and grassy, or even flowery, the latter becoming more dominant as I progress though the glass. Not what one would usually expect from a double IPA, but still very nice. Heavy bitterness (for a Belgian beer at least), but still drinkable, and a touch of sweetness. Medium to full body, soft enough carbonation. I would prefer the flowery aroma of the highly concentrated hops in a lighter beer, but until that’s possible, I’ll happily drink this one again - not on the same day though ;-)

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Golden palish color with little foam. A fresh flowery aromahop smell promises decent bitterness. The taste is a brilliantly balanced bitterness with citrusy aromas. (I suspect the hop to be nelson sauvin). Bitter aftertaste feels tart, but is strangely satisfying. This beer meets my taste surprisingly well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden-yellow color with big white head. Gapefruit scent, grassy, citrusy, hoppy. Taste is dry and more grapefruits and citrus fruits, also some sweeter fruits and a good amount of bitterness in the finish. Hardly any residual sweetness. Good amount of carbonation. Very good!

The colour is yellow and cloudy with a white head. The hops are dominant in the aroma and offer a strong grapefruit scent. The grapefruit is also instantely recognisable when you taste it and it offers a nice bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste. Very nice beer!!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels, 23 Oct 2014) Hazy yellow colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of bread, citrus and grass. Malty, hoppy taste with bread, grass, citrus and a certain citric bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Refreshing and well balanced, but far from a double IPA in my book. Quite nice.
