3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, BB 05/12/14, large sample. Clear amber color, medium frothy off-white head. Aroma of biscuity malts, grapefruit, citrus, hint of pine, some spicy belgian yeast. Reminds me of troubadour magma. Medium citrussy bitterness backed up with some biscuity malt. Finishes quite dry, which makes the bitterness come through more. Slight thinnish though. As said, this reminds me of troubadour magma, which I think is a great fusion between belgian and american beers. Lovely stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ambrée claire, quasi pas d’effervescence de visu, légère au palais, fine mousse crémeuse beige. Du caramel, on passe vite à l’amertume et à des fruits tels que (et dans le désordre) le citron, l’abricot, le pamplemousse ou encore l’orange. Pas mal, pas mal...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark golden cloudy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and some tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit hoppynes. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish, some caramel with light tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and lightly sweetish, some caramel and light fruitiness with some grapefruit - light citrus hoppyness, faint alcohol. OK well hopped Belgian IIPA - too much caramel for me.
