750ml corked/caged bottle at fridge temp split between a pair of large snifters. If there's a date or a code, I don't see it.

Pours cloudy amber with very little head, and not much carbonation. Smell is strong -- fruity, grassy, some hay.

Taste is oldish hops (once again, wish there was a date on the bottle), straw. A little funk.

Mouthfeel is thick. Overall, it's OK.

Beautiful appearance. Reddish orange with fantastic head and lacing.

Nice aroma of IPA style hops. Apricots, tropical fruit and candied fruit sweetness in the smell.

Taste is very hoppy in a fruity sweet way. Apricot and yeast and candied fruit. Belgian yeast is there but secondary to the US IPA style hops. Quite resinous and not super citrus like.

A very enjoyable flavoursome Belgian IPA. Recommended for Amercan IPA lovers and seems to be close to a double IPA than a Belgian Tripel or Strong Pale Ale.

94/100

Another exotic one from Belgium. Smell like barrels, intense, resembling quality red wine. Lots of a snow white foam, but beer color is nice also, dark orange. Earth tones at first, than citrus and melons. Sweeter than expected, but doesn't overload taste buds. Nice finish with malts and hops.
