3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ML bottle purchased at BevMo in Redding, CA. APPEARANCE / THE POUR: Dark golden color, looks similar to a pale ale. 2-finger white head that starts out dense, but collapses somewhat quick. Nice Brussels lace in trappist glass. Meniscus is fast rising, characteristic of a beer at 6.5% ABV. AROMA / BOUQUET: Grassy, hay, hops are in the forefront of this beer, with the 3 different yeast strains in the background. TASTE: This is more of a Belgian-style pale ale to me...Big hop presence, yet the Belgian character gives it a softness in the yeast character. PALATE: Dry entry, full-on hops astringency, black pepper mouthfeel. OVERALL: A well made Belgian ale (again I think its a Belgian-style pale ale) It is a well made beer. A good session beer.
D’entrée de jeu, cette bière mise sur l’aromatique ; très florale et promesses de fruité. Blonde un peu opaque, mince, une bouche d’abord manifestement belge (levure, pain, pêches), avec un dry hop costaud, style belge américaine. Désaltérante, alcool bien caché, joliment complexe, et pourtant simple et accessible. Très agréable petite création. TychoJames (1308) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2017
Flaska systembolaget. Orangeaktig kulör. Lätt vinös doft äpple och lite örter. Ganska tunn smak av örter, halm och druva. Möjligtvis lite krusbär. gripweed57 (2452) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2017

Pretty mellow and easy drinking. Biscuity with a light hop finish. I don’t think I’d Order it again but I don’t mind it. andrepintado (3398) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - MAY 3, 2017

It pours a deep golden color with orange tinges. It has moderate head retention with moderate Belgian lace. It has aromas of earth and spice. There is a bit of toast with herbal and orange. It has an initial impression of spice. There are also earthen and biscuit flavors. There are backgrounds notes of orange. Floral and herbal elements round out the flavors. It has a moderate body with moderate carbonation and a certain dry crispness to it. The finish features most of the spice elements and dryness. Overall, this is a very enjoyable complex combination of spices and fruit. Svesse (8595) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2017
(Draught at Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm, 11 Feb 2017) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, spicy nose with citrus, bread, apricots, hay and spicy yeast. Fruity, spicy taste with notes of citrus, grapefruit, peaches, hay, bread, spicy yeast and a balanced grassy bitterness. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Fresh and tasty, quite complex. Nice one. Turtles (2647) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2017
750ml bottle from Systembolaget. Slightly hazy golden, long-lasting and dense white head, rich lacing. Subtle aroma, crisp bread, bread dough, yeast, hay, sweet grains, earthy and grassy. Light to medium-bodied, soft carbonated, fairly smooth mouthfeel. The taste follows the the aroma, not too much going on, red apples, bread dough, rye bread, hay and notes of cardboard. Short grassy finish. nuplastikk (6254) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Tap at congregation Long Beach. Filtered looking orange tan body. Big authentic Belgian yeast esters. Toasty golden malts. Really has a European feel. Good.
