chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2011
330ml bottle, purchased from Bierkoning, Amsterdam, drunk on 1 May 2011. No indication of where this was actually brewed (a pet peeve of mine). Golden amber colour. Thin white head. Lively condition. Slightly estery yeast aroma - obvious Belgian character - with some sharp, citric hop notes. Reasonably bitter on the palate with tart, fruity hops. Firm, very clean mouthfeel. Slightly mineral / chalky feel. Not much like an American IPA but very pleasant - crisp and refreshing with plenty of bite. More spicy and citric than aromatic.

Bottle @ home. Hazy dark golden color, medium head, some tiny debris floating around. Aroma of belgian yeast, spicy, slightly hoppy. Slight citrussy bitterness, hint of sweet, bit fruity of citrus and orange. Bit sticky finish. Easy to drink. Decent stuff. Borresteijn (6970) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 6, 2011

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2012 Tasty looking orange bodied beer with firm head. I get grapefruit, grass, hay and oranges. Very tasty, refreshing hoppy aroma. Starts fruity but middle reveals a true bitterness from the hops. Slightly short aftertaste. Great balance in this beer while packing loads of flavour. (33cl bottle) (Rating re-indexed)

Bottled. The aroma has some yeast, and grassy hops. Quite smooth. Hazy, yellow coloured beer with a white head. The taste is light bitter, crisp, grassy and quite dry. Ok. BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2011

From bottle at ’t Arendsnest. Hazy amber, medium head. Grassy hop aroma. Some sugar balanced by grassy hoppiness. Not bad. ads135 (4590) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 22, 2011
A slightly bitter beer. The hops are dull tasting but potent in the aroma and smell of hay and a bit of citrus. Medium body and hazy.
