Hazy brass with tower of soapy white froth.
Coconut (?!) nose with hints of orange segments and pastry.
Danish, lemon curd and fresh apricot, some lean grain, musty yeast and big noble and citrus hop hit.
Medicinal lemon finish and herbal funky linger.
Crisp, some chew, lt-med, slight burn.

Very Duvel-esque: a solid blonde with hoppy notes. Wouldn't know that this is dry-hopped. Astringent, which is not to say harsh. Overall, lemony and Belgian and nice.

Beer bottle (33 cl.) purchased from Chez Clem's (Nantes), and tasted in may 2013.

Appearance : golden color, with white foamy head (nice lacing).
Smell : grass, floral and nice hoppy aromas.
Taste & mouthfeel : grassy flavors with dry hoppy finish.
Drinkability : a good beer in the style Belgian IPA (dry Hopping method,with Citra ?). Better than the ordinary Hopus.
