De geur is uitgesproken hoppig en bloemig. Smaak: zoetige aanzet gevolgd door een volmondige bitterheid met watfruitigheid zoals mandarijn. De afdronk is aangenaam bitter.

Amber body, bit clear, nice head. Impressive amount of hops, not sure if 20 is any better than, say, 5, but I like it much more than I expected. Nice bitterness too, juicy and with enough cara malts to balance. Nice! (33cl bottle from Dranken Pauwels)

kraddel (7283) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours unclear, dark blonde. Rather small white head. Smell is intense hoppy, both aromatic and bitter. Towards the Amarillo-like hoppyness. Taste is intense. Very bitter, grainy with a sweet touch. Mildly bitter in the aftertaste. Rather faded aromahops. OK balanced, but I feel like the aroma-side should have been higher, and the MF more robust. Still very good. I wonder why this was not added as an IPA, even though it clearly is one.

Good, thick cream-ish head over clear foxy-orange beer, leaving textbook lace. Quite earthy nose, bit human sweat, leafy, parsley, cookies, and, of course, hops. Bitter hoppy and again, truly earthy flavour. Again this meaty-sweat streak too, but never disturbingly. Bit of caramel, non-sweet. Very tittilating MF, rather well-bodied, hopoily slickness. I dont get the negative comments below, Im not getting any chemical flavour. I rather like this.

Zupastan (160) - Kortrijk, BELGIUM - OCT 22, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home. Amber beer with a medium, off-white head, bit adhesive. Aroma is gras, (wet) grains. Medium carbonation. Taste is grassy, grains, herbal, medium bitterness, caramel. Aftertaste is grassy, chemical, off-putting bitterness. Im not a fan.

Really hoppy and dry. And full bodied and thick and oily and bitter. This is that many people like most. [email protected]

33cl bottle courtesy of and shared with Tderoeck. BB 20/02/2020, dj l cest problmatique, et on trouve un ct irraliste pour une bire mettant un point dhonneur utiliser 20 houblons. Pq mettre des dates si loin dans le temps alors que le profil frais des houblons commencera tomber sous les 6-8 mois? Arme est dcevant surtout en attendant une explosion de houblons, je retrouve des effluves essentiellement fleuries trs nobles pour un malt carapils, ple. Palais est malt, cara, lger pils, fruit prsentant un ct citronn et fleuri. Rsiduel sucre brun en fin de bouche. Pas franchement redire, mais ltiquette de cette bouteille est quand mme assez louche, sentiment partag par notre table. De couleur orange, col fin beige. Ok, mais jai normment de mal voir une quelconque dimension et encore moins un caractre venant de 20 houblons. Le tout semble fortement centr sur une base noble avec dautres houblons utiliss faible pourcentage. Dcevant de la part de Cazeau.

Thanks to tderoeck! 330 ml. bottle sampled. The label features a creepy guy hiding in the bushes whilst grinning & holding a bottle of beer. I am getting some solid Marc Dutroux vibes here, even the fascial here, The name of beer is apparently local dialect for together, Seriously creepy & messed-up stuff right here, Anyway the beer features a baffling amount of 20! European hops, it doesnt specify which ones. It is also 20 Plato, 20 EBC, 4 * 20 IBU,. BBF 20/02/2020. Hazy orange, little white. Nose is sweet milky yeast, sugar, perfume & chemical / pesticide, Taste is milky yeast, chemical & unpleasant perfume hops, candy, spoiled candy, spoiled milk, herbal, Totally unpleasant. Awful chemical bitterness, Heavily unpleasant. They should probably fixed more on the flavor than their bizarre preoccupation with the number 20. I just hope that this beer will keep them home and not lucking in the bushes.
