Eye: Muddy orange. Large head.
Nose: Yeast, zest, hops, cookies, brett.
Tongue: Loads of hops; grapefruit, zest, oranges. Big and really intense, long bitterness.
Brain:The bitterness might be too much for some but I really enjoyed it.
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours hazy golden with a big frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of soapy trace and lacing on the glass. Smell is tiny malty and fruity with crackers, pink grapefruit juice, hay, dry soil, white pepper corns, unripe mango, passionfruit and white grape skins. Taste is bitter, phenolic and fruity with crackers, white bread, grapefruit juice, hay, dry soil, orange zest, dry wood, grape skins, passionfruit, gooseberries, lemon grass, lime leaves, unripe mango, sheet metal and hints of pepper corns. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry, soft, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is bitter, slightly phenolic and tiny fruity with crackers, grapefruit rinds, dry soil, hay, unripe tropical fruits, lemon grass, orange zest and hints of pepper corns. Another very solid Ranke offering. Tasty! Only the hints of sheet metal phenols brings it down. ansalon (4121) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2014

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2015 Hazy yellow, big head. Aroma of belgian yeast, bubblegum, fruit esters. Tastes quite bland, some grain, a bit off taste of cooked vegetables, and the only hop input is some sort of herbal lemon peel and offputting faint bitterness. Very dry and light body.

Flavours of lemon peels, herbs, pears, spices, a hint of caramel and banana. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium-light bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. Overall a great beer with flavours you would expect from a Belgian Ale.
