Robe ambrée, mousse abondante et crémeuse. Nez typé sur des notes d'agrumes confits, de gingembre, de houblon, sur un fond d'épices. Bouche à l'attaque acidulée et épicée, bulle fine, longueur moyenne et finale sur une fine amertume. Classique. The_Osprey (9916) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2017
November 2017 - Tasting at CBC Islington. Bottle shared with big thanks to Fergus for this "session DIPA". As 'Du Brabant Origame 4'. Dark orange, hazy and still with a huge foamy white head that leaves thick lacing. Aroma is airy, papery, some chalk. Body is light and frothy with tingly carbonation. Very frothy in mouth. Taste is sodawater, chalky, spicy and chalky, dusty. Plain and boring, washed out. Just not for me. (5-4-5-3-12=2.9) Scopey (16548) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2017
Bottle at CBC Islington, thanks to Fergus. It pours hazy orange - amber with a massive white head. The aroma is bready, brioche, cereal, touch of banana, cereal, nougat and candied citrus. The taste is dry, bitter ,earthy, woody, pithy citrus, grassy, soda water, minerals, dirt, must and barnyard. Medium body and high, foamy carbonation. Perhaps a bit wishy-washy. Carbonation is also far too high. Fair. Theydon_Bois (21865) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2017

Light sweet flavour with strong grassy bitterness, lots of husky grains, old lemon rind. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Dry and bitter in the finish, more grass, husky grains. So so.

750 ml bottle, shared by Saeglopur, many thanks. Pours a pretty hazy amber with a large, slightly off-white head. The aroma is lightly fruity with citric fruits (mandarin, orange) and lightly herbal. Light to medium body with a low carbonation and a medium to heavy, lingering bitterness. The flavor is lightly malty (bread) and again lightly fruity (grapefruit, unripe tart berries). Dry and astringent finish. Unfortunately, the high bitterness basically overpowers everything else in the beer.

Werckmeister (3492) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JUN 25, 2017
Dark amber, hazy, a bit murky body, with a big, creamy, light beige head.
Aroma of citrus, flowers, sweet berries, some tropical fruits, some grass, some soap.
Tastes of bitterness, grapefruit, citrus, peach, berries, some tropical fruits, some grass, slight soap.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes pretty bitter, almost a bit medical, medium dry, zesty, floral, grassy, bit piney.
OK. Feels quite unbalanced for me, even a bit unclean. The bitterness is too dominant and there are some soapy notes I don’t like that much. Was expecting more.
0,75l bottle at home shared by Saeglopur, big thanks. BB 06.03.2019. amber cloudy color, small white head. smells a bit green herbal, bit grassy, light berry notes, lightly malty. ok smell. light body, light carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes green herbal, grassy, light veggies, some grapefruit, bit peppery. finishes quite bitter with notes of grass, green herbs and peppery notes. not a big fan of this, rather weird balance, does not taste totally clean. overall still drinkable but definitly not a favorite of mine.
