3.5/5 rDev -5.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Swing tope bottle, 330 ml, at home. Poured into a tulip glass. ABV 8.3%
It opens with a loud pop and it pours in my glass a light orange golden beer, with a huge four fingers head. Soapy in texture, good retention. Ig goes down lazily, leaving a good amount of lacing around the glass.
Nice aroma, fruits, yeast present. Also sugars.On the background some of the alcohol.
Taste is bitter, again some yeast and some malts taste. Not very hoppy, but the hops that it does have make for a nice result and adding some floral notes.
Full body. Carbonation above average. Quite dry on the palate.
Overall, maybe I misinterpreted the name, along with the phrase "5 sorts of hops" and in my head I had it as something very hoppy, surely above average. At the end, it was a very nice beer, a typical example of a Belgian Ale. Very good, very easily drinkable, especially since the alcohol is just a tiny bit traceable, and very tasty.

3.86/5 rDev +3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
a: nice swing top bottle that pours a hazy gold/straw with a cray thick white head that looks like meringue and has amazing staying power
s: spicy, sweet, coriander, rounded citrus,
t: sweet, mild hay, rock sugar, spicey, a bit of abv, and a mild bitter hop finnish, a little grapiness
m: the creamy foam adds a nice element to the mouthfeel; medium body, slightly syrupy, it is lightly carbed which i think accentuates the mild syrupiness - it could use more carbonation imo
d: a decent beer (although it is a little overpriced), could use a little less sweetness i think and some more complex balance - good though, but an also ran for beers in the style.
