look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

$15.99 for a corked, caged and foiled 750ml bottle. 2012. Hopped with Citra, Saaz, & Styrian Goldings, then dry hopped with Citra. 9.5% per the bottle.

Pours out to a very pale straw golden with very good clarity and forming a rapidly expanding and overflowing bone white head with superior retention and lacing...kinda like soap bubbles, in part due to it's very brisk carbonation which is at least 4.0 carbs or so. The nose is of spicy floral hops with apple and pear esters nicely balanced by some Belgian phenolics. The mouthfeel is champagne like, exploding upon the tongue with a very dry finish, deceptively light body and a biting finish. The taste is of delicate pils malt, the spicy, grassy and floral hops, and a firm bitterness. Unfortunately, the alcohol is very hot and marred by lots of higher alcohols which burn and ruin the taste for me. The bitterness is quite peculiar. I wonder if they are using hop concentrate. Quite warming as it goes down. Some lemony tartness in the aftertaste with lots of pears in the burps.

Disappointed with this one, especially considering the price. Along this line, Matilda is superior, as is La Fin du Monde (although both are less hoppy). Wouldn't buy it again, and can't recommend it.

3.53/5  rDev -17.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Usual 330ml bottle: BBD of 02 2015, poured into a Duvel glass at home on 23rd 06 2013.

Looks great in the glass, golden, bright and clear: huge white foaming head with large carbonisation bubbles rising up to replenish it.

Grapefruit flavours rule the nose and taste: really strong and heavy. However the alcohol can also be noticed within the taste. Not too well balanced, the malts hardly getting a look in, but if you are crazy about Citra hops this is the beer for you (I'm not a Citra fan really).

Crisp, refreshing and grapefruity throughout.

3.8/5  rDev -11.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2 | overall: 4

Pours pale gold with a large lasting head.
Nose shows lychee, passion-fruit, spicy phenols, light malt, pear and apple esters. Also some doughy notes.
Flavours are similar at first with a bit of fruit and spicy notes. There's a fair bit of booze in the finish.
Too much carbonation.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry Nobel hops notes with light dill notes with pear notes and some light peppery yeast notes. Taste is also dominated by dill notes with some quite dry Saaz notes with some light dill from the Citra and some pear ester with a peppery yeast finish. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Solid beer with nice dose of Saaz and limited Citra which might not be a bad thing.
