Hazy gold with a huge white head. Musty honeycomb aroma with hints of marzipan and wet dishcloth. Taste is sweet, overripe pineapple, clove and banana, suddenly replaced by a mouth shattering burst of hoppiness. Exciting beer.

Hazy blonde pale ale with a huge thick creamy head. Nose of citrus, fresh bread and noble spicy hops. The heavy carbonation hits your palate with an uppercut and lead to a very full bodied pale ale with a very slight acidic aftertaste that procure some freshness to this one. It’s not so bitter as you would expect with the term «IPA». But this is not west coast, it’s southwest belgium ! And it is very well made indeed. Refreshing and very tasty.

This is better described as a Belgian IPA. It’s very hoppy and fruity, mostly grapefruit thanks to the delicious Amarillo hops. Good beer.

So many Belgian attempts to produce extra-hoppy ales have had somewhat clumsy results, as if the hops are striking discordant notes with other ingredients--or more commonly, the brewer is just holding back and can’t quite commit to the hoppy thang. Not so in this case! Thus we have my favorite brew I sampled at ZBF08. Pours thickly cloudy old gold, with a thick, off-white head turning to persistent film. Citric-hoppy nose, like grapefruit, but also notes of oranges and green grass. Nose is fantastic, and it has you wishing it was even stronger. Flavor makes up for it, with a very hoppy bitterness managing to be both dry and fresh-tasting, counteracted only a bit by a light, malty sweetness. Bitterness is sticky into the finish and aftertaste. I hope this recipe becomes a consistent one for Alvinne.

Very good. Not a big belguim fan but i am ahop head. The chinook and amarillo really balaced out the belguim yeast flavor(usually what i dont like about belguims) Very well done

On tap at Mugs Ale House for B2B. Deep golden in color with a nice white head that left a nice lacing on the glass. Crisp and hoppy spicy aroma. Citrusy floral notes. Hoppy earthy malty flavor. Caramel notes. Dry tasting. Medium bodied. Finish is bitter. Very nice beer. Very drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a nice white head. Aroma is malty, yeasty, hoppy slight grassiness. Flavor is caramel, malty, hoppy, some spice and pepper with a nice bitter finish. Very nice beer, I enjoyed this one very much. Need more!

Pours a hazy golden amber w/a wonderful off white head that is thick, sticks around for the beer and laces the glass beautifully. To the nose it is sweet and fruity with a hint of pine. First taste is sweet with nice floral hoppiness. It’s pretty smooth all the way through and all together an excellent European IPA.
