Orange coloured beer. Smells better as it taste. Fruity, mostly citrus and some unpleasant sourness that gets trough.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2013
75cl Bottle at home. Darker blond to light amber coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a large white head. Fruity grassy and sweeter hoppy hinted aroma. Full light sprankling palate. Finish is sweet herby bitter with a longer bitter hoppy noted ending. Decent IPA. Not bad.

Corked bottle from SVD, thanks! Deep golden color. Grassy, slightly herbal citrus aroma with grapes. Firm grassy, slightly herbal hoppy flavor with citrus, blackcurrant and grapes, A shorter aftertaste as expected.

75 cl. bottle @ home. Purchased @ Delhaize. Corked & caged with a synthetic cork. Brewed in Octobre 2012 & bottled in November 2012. Limited to 4000 bottles like the batches of the previous series. The accompanying booklet warns me that this American grown hop can taste extremely bitter & that I should brace myself. Very lightly hazy golden with a BIG fluffy white head. Herbal, light toothpaste bitterness in the nose, floral, quite a bit plastic with the other side of lemongrass. Bitter floral, light hop bitterness in the front, I can lightly recognise Sorachi Ace in this but not really the way I want it, this is Sorachi Ace but not the way I like it, my bad (bit sad because this is my favourite hop), bitter peel, very light earthly touch of Sorachi Ace blue cheese followed by quite a bit of sweetness, lots of coconut powder & cream, sweet grains, sweet spices, creamy, sweet lemon peel… Creamy body, too full for my taste. Too tame with too much sweetness for me in here to outbalance it. I assume that this is extreme for the average consumer. Not sure what to say about this , it is like something I really like (I am getting some Sorachi Ace in here) presented in a way I am not really digging. Very mixed feelings here.

timmwillum (61) - BELGIUM - NOV 3, 2013
Meget speciel og noget bitter øl med masser af humle (surprise). Vinder bestemt ved nærmere bekendtskab. Sødme, syre, krydderi og højt kulsyreindhold.

gEUS (982) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2013
750 ml bottle - pours clear yellow with steady yet thin head. Aroma is green harsh, pine, banana. Thin body, lack of balance, a bit too bitter.
