UPDATED: NOV 4, 2016 Bottle from Saveur Biere. Labeled:
Les quatre surfeurs de l’apocalypso. The beer poured golden color with a thick white head. Sharp lemony notes in flavor. Floral, lemony nose, malts, some tropical fruits. Grainy notes as well in flavor. Herbal hops and lemon dominates though. As the beer gets warmer, more spiciness appears. Medium bodied, ok dry finish, lingers. Actually gets better with every sip. alexsdad06 (10400) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2016

Kveldens siste fra planke på Le Trou du Diable krankupp på Cirkus (Stavanger) sep-16: klar gylden med fint skum som varer. Alle de fire pale ales jeg smakte hadde noen fellestrekk: en nærmest cremet munnfølelse, balanserte smaksinntrykk og myk, behagelig avslutning. Så variasjonene lå i humleprofilene. Deilige øl alle fire, dog uten å være minneverdige. Denne var kanskje den beste? Fløyelsmyk og samtidig med det nødvendige humlebittet. Ganske tørr. Noe krydder/pepper, pæreskall, lime, svart te, gjær overmodne bær. Humlen er Calypso. Interesant. Synd at de olfaktoriske evnene mine var sterkt reduserte av forkjølelse.

How: tap Appearance: hazy golden, medium white head. Aroma: stone fruits, fresh yeast, prunes, some lemon and syrup. Palate: light body, average to high carbonation. Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2016
Hazy amber color with lots of activity. 2 finger head that last a weak 5 minutes with faint lacing. Flavors of faint hops, floral, a little yeasty, caramel, and citrus. More like an Witbier style IPA with a soft delicate grassy hoppy feel with tropical fruits, well balanced. Great sharpness and freshness. The body is a little light with a well intensified medium strength finish. Quite delicious and overall highly drinkable. A sweeter and softer accessible IPA.

13.09.2016, tap (as Les 4 Surfeurs de L’Apocalypse) @ UNA:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet grassy, leafs, sap, hay, minerals, yeast, light malts, lawn, hops, moss, hints of dried fruits. Taste is slightly dry mineraly, weeds, minerals, leafs, bark, alcohol, sap, caramel, hay, flowers, yeast. Medium bitterness, slightly dry and harsh mouthfeel. Not my cup of tea.
