COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Lanterne c’est un peu une métaphore du feu fragile et sacré que nous préservons pour avancer dans l’inconnu. Au-delà de la bière en tant que produit de convivialité et de plaisir, c’est aussi la Lanterne qui va nous guider dans les premiers pas de la nanobrasserie. Cette IPA sèche et légère fait la part belle aux houblons américains pour développer une amertume rafraichissante et une belle palette aromatique.

Ipa de 5,5 % abv, dont la devise est "plus de houblon, plus de puissance, plus de feu" … On se croirait à Francorchamps !! Brassée à la brasserie de Bastogne, qui pourtant en a vu d'autres, elle manque totalement sa devise. Mon exemplaire était à 16 mois avant sa date. Couleur doré assez pâle, à la clarté nette, pure. Bulles fines, en colonnes droites, partout, vives. Mousse blanche, très épaisse, avec des cratères en haut, stable à 6 mm. Arômes de malt, houblon fin, agrumes, zeste de citron. 1ère bouche très souple, à la belle entame malt/houblon, avec une amertume originale mais indéfinie. Arrière-bouche qui mêle blé et zeste de pamplemousse, assez jolie. 2ème nez délicat, et bel ensemble à l'amertume un peu plus verte. Arrière-bouche moins fine que la 1ère. 3ème au bel ensemble fruit/malt/houblon, mais à l'amertume instable. Arrière-bouche qui est assez courte, peu définie. Longueur en perte de vitesse sensible (joint de culasse), moins d'unité, moins de précision, moins de finesse (ou, si vous voulez : "moins de houblon, moins de puissance, moins de feu" …). Jambes lisses, collantes en haut. Levure fine, fruitée, belle ligne. Alcool trop faible, il perd largement le contrôle sur la distance (dans le virage de la source ..). Finale au drapeau à damier. CONCLUSION : il faudra éclairer la lanterne de ce brasseur (l'ermite) sur ce qu'est une belle ipa ... (la vraie belle ipa, cela ressemble à une Ferrari en pleine "puissance", qui brûle le "feu" de dieu ..) (8/3/6/3/12)

Very misty, large head. Soft saison like aroma, not as clean as expected, which is great. Melon like hops. Light bitter, surprisingly well done. Very true it American example except indeed for that more complex fermentation. It’s surprisingly awesome! (Sampled on tap at Swafff Brussels)

On tap at ContreBande. Pours golden yellow and opaque. A very good play in the mouth and nose between the malts, the hops and the yeast. This beer is fantastic. very drinkable and refreshing.

Great beer made in a great brewery. Probably the best brewery to produce it.

Zeer leuke IPA. Zoals ik ze graag heb. Het aroma is een hop bom, maar de smaak is veel uitgebalanceerder. Mooi rond en juicy mondgevoel. Leuk.

kerenmk (4860) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 23, 2016
Bottle shared at a tasting at Tom’s place. Thanks Tom. Cloudy blond. Onion and lemon and a little leafy in the nose, bitter, dry and a little sweet in the mouth. Medium body, mellow bitter finish, a little floral, mellow fizz. Well-balanced and good.

Brussels has acquired a vibrant beer scene in recent years - like most other modern cities I suppose - and this new, enthusiastic brewing project is a good illustration of how these new Brussels-based craft brewers more and more depart from the Belgian clichés. This is an ’internationally’ conceived IPA, tasted from tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Very thick, frothy, dense, beaten egg-like, snow white head leaving an intricate pattern of papery lacing around the glass; straw blonde robe, medium hazy, on the pale side for the style. Aroma is dominated by ’new’ hoppiness, but not in the most elegant way imaginable: suffering a bit from a stale urine-like odour as a result, while other impressions include moldy lemon peel, dough, white bread, fermenting pear juice, light passion fruit, pineapple juice, dried mango, green kiwi, apple. Fruity onset with impressions of passion fruit, pineapple, green banana and lime with an apple-ish touch, soft body yet initially quite sharply carbonated, smooth and slick; lightly bready middle, a tad grainy, leading up to a hoppy finish, with retronasal mango, pink grapefruit and passion fruit, while that urine-like aspect fortunately does not return anymore at least not at full force - in all, this tastes a lot better than it smells. The hop bitterness remains mild and aromatic, but adequately bittering, just not in a harsh way, as is the intention in most present-day IPAs that are conscious of what is happening internationally with this style. Elegant, too bad for that urine thing, but tastes pleasant enough, I can see myself drinking this on the terrace outside MLF for hours on end if it were a summer’s day.
