Madaquet pours a cloudy honey yellow with little foam on top. Only a few spots of lace on the glass between sips.

The strong aroma is loaded with grapefruit citrus, pine and a little grass/hay.

Each sip of this full bodied beer is chewy, dry and mildly carbonated. The flavor is loaded with grapefruit citrus, pine, some lemon rind and enough sweet malt and cereal grain to hold it together. It finishes moderately bitter and dry with a some grass notes. Once gone the grapefruit citrus, grass and malt sweetness lingers on the palate.

The hops in this beer just don't fade. Tons of hop flavor and chewy body makes me want to brush my teeth after drinking a pint.

Three-finger starting head. Settles quickly, leaving little lace. The broth is straw to gold color with a lima bean green hue to it. Cloudy.

Clean, fresh smell to the beer. Little hop, mostly pale malt nose (a bit earthy). Second smell features a bit of soured milk and a touch of grapefruit rind.

Good starting malt taste and (round) body. The hop comes on strong but not so that it makes you pucker up. Steady bitter aftertaste. Pretty easy to drink steadily. The mouthfeel is full with a steady level of carbonation.
