Alles staat in het teken van 20: 20° Plato = 9 vol.% alc., 20 EBC (kleur), 4 x 20 IBU (bittereenheden) + 20 verschillende Europese hop! Kleur: oranje, koperkleurig. Witte schuimkraag. De geur is uitgesproken hoppig en bloemig. Smaak: zoetige aanzet gevolgd door een volmondige bitterheid met watfruitigheid zoals mandarijn. De afdronk is aangenaam bitter.

Bottle. Hazy golden with white foam. malt, perfume, grass and some fruity notes. The aroma is bether than the taste, but it anyways feels to much. Bitter aftertaste.

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 (9143) - Antwerp, 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 don’t get the negative comments below, I’m 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. I’m 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, déjà là c’est problématique, et on trouve un côté irréaliste pour une bière mettant un point d’honneur à utiliser 20 houblons. Pq mettre des dates si loin dans le temps alors que le profil frais des houblons commencera à tomber sous les 6-8 mois?
Arôme est décevant surtout en attendant une explosion de houblons, je retrouve des effluves essentiellement fleuries très nobles pour un malté carapils, pâle.
Palais est malté, cara, léger pils, fruité présentant un côté citronné et fleuri. Résiduel sucre brun en fin de bouche.

Pas franchement à redire, mais l’étiquette de cette bouteille est quand même assez louche, sentiment partagé par notre table.
De couleur orangée, col fin beige.


Ok, mais j’ai énormément de mal à voir une quelconque dimension et encore moins un caractère venant de 20 houblons. Le tout semble fortement centré sur une base noble avec d’autres houblons utilisés à faible pourcentage.

Décevant de la part de Cazeau.
