On-tap at Cafe Belgie, Utrecht, Netherlands

A: The beer is clear amber orange in color and has the faintest hints of carbonation. It poured with a dense off white head that died down, leaving wispy lacing on the surface, a collar around the edge and lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Aromas of citrusy and spicy hops are present in the nose along with caramel malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has hints of malty sweetness along with a complex mixture of hop flavors and a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is a very nice and refreshing Dutch version of an IPA that seems a little maltier compared to American counterparts and is well balanced.

Got this one from Bert's Bierhuis in Utrecht. This is a Utrecht brewery that's been gaining popularity here, and rightly so. Most of their beers haven't quite been to my liking, but this one is definitely solid.

From a bottle into a snifter
Best Before 5 September 2015
IBU: 50

APPEARANCE: Pours a two finger, medium-loose, fluffy white head with good retention. Perfectly clear gamboge orange with medium levels of carbonation. Head fades to a faint wisp with carbonation bubbles decorating the top. A splotchy wisp remains leaving some nice lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Pale malts, light caramel and toffee, some citrus notes, floral notes, as well as some grapefruit on the nose. Pretty good.

TASTE: Pale and grainy malts up front, some caramel sweetness, into a hoppy and spicy finish. Bitter floral hops, some spicy yeasty notes, as well as some caramel sweetness lingers mildly on the palate. Mild finish, but lingers.

PALATE: Medium body and slightly higher levels of carbonation. A bit too much perhaps. Despite that, it's really, really creamy and smooth going down, finishing slightly dry. A bit overcarbonated, but fuller and really creamy smooth. Nice stuff.

OVERALL: A solid effort from Maximus. Most of their beers are lack luster at best, but this one is solid. I wish it were more fruity as opposed to spicy, but that's personal taste and I could imagine a lot of people disagreeing. Solidly made, and much more enjoyable out of the fridge, as this one was consumed.
