4.38/5  rDev +11.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

On tap at Chez Moeder Lambic, poured into its own chalice. A deep gold, amber colour with a nice frothy off-white head that retains all the way down and laces.

Tangy fruity hops on the nose with slight malty biscuit.

There is so much to this beer on the palate. As for fruits, you certainly get some caramel and orange peel (even orange blossom) but, more so, tropical fruits like mango and passionfruit. There is a decent malt structure throughout but obviously, this is a beer about its hops, which impart a fine piney dryness throughout. At 9%, it is no surprise that there is a slightly alcoholic finish but it is a very pleasant finish and gives a nice balance to the sweetness.

The beer was launched this year and has already scooped a number of prizes and deservedly so. It describes itself as a triple IPA but is surely one of the finest of the growing array of IPA-ish beers that are emerging in Belgium. Well done I say.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the Atlanta Yard House.
A: lclear medium amber with a somewhat weak head.

Aroma: boozy with a hint of cognac oversome Belgian yeast and a trace of bread.

Flavor: lsweet up front turning ightly bitter by the finish. Building booziness.

Feel: light-medium body; carbonation seems too low.

Serving type: on-tap
