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.

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.

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.

From tap. Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is fruity, light bretty and crisp hoppy. Smooth fruity. Lingering fruity and bretty like. Floral. Bitter and dry hoppy and fruity far finish.

SylvainCFC (173) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 2, 2016
Blonde claire à la mousse abondante, petites bulles homogènes avec texture meringuée, s’aère en gardant une bonne tenue. Adhère à la paroi. Nez doux fruité houblonné, légèrement herbeux. Attaque houblonnée végétale, amertume modérée s’amplifie où s’épanouissent les notes fruitées : mandarine, mangue, tropical. IPA équilibrée entre douceur et amertume, très buvable, légère, mais finalement assez fade. Peu de caractère. Carbonatation moyenne, texture aqueuse.
