"Not really a pale ale," the bottle says in a bit of expectations management. So. Poured into a tulip glass as a brass-colored with a thin trail of bubbles feeding a thing ring of white foam. Aromas of mint, bread, light toast, a light lavender something. The hop attack stabs in as a thin and flinty edge of bitterness with a bit of iron in it. Some apricot, banana and coriander behind that, and some citrus pitch lingers afterward. Not a lot to chew on, with some helpful cleansing from the effervescence but a bit of oil persists in the mouth. Not so much that it won't work for a quencher or an aggressive session starter.

Bought from a small foreign grocery store in Shanghai China. Poured into a pint glass from the 33cL stubby bottle.
A: The beer is a hazy pure orange color topped with a foamy white head that doesn't last very long. Lots of carbonation inside.
S: Tangerine and then orange peel most noticeable. Somewhat balanced by a nice sweetness and some yeast.
T: Nice balanced character, bitter up front but then mellowing out before a drying finish. Citrus peel but also some pine or floral. Hard to make out in the middle. Good sweetness in there, but again balanced in a great way.
Overall: Very pleasing refreshing drink. Compare to La Chouffe in character. Great find in China. I will have this again.

Beer bottle (33 cl.) purchased from la Cervoiserie, and tasted in 2014.
Appearance : orange color with white foamy head.
Smell : hoppy and floral aromas.
Taste & mouthfeel : citrus notes and hint of hoppy spice, hop is quite mild for an IPA.
Overall : a good beer in the Belgian style IPA.
