May 2013 label date (not indicating best-by but 2 years after bottling). Dusky, cloudy gold with a big head of big persistent bubbles. Do I smell dry hopping? A slight aroma of hop flower, toast, yellow fruits, a whiff of cellar. Quite unexpectedly sweet (ah, the label ingredients speak of sugar before hops), caramel, a bit of anis and sasparilla flavor, some peach and apricot. A quite herbal -- in a good way -- and restrained hop bitterness works it way in late. Mouthfeel is rather thick, not cleansed by the hops as one would expect for the style. Satisfying but not more-ish. Overall, some plus points outweigh it being not a classic example of the style.

Nice decent IPA. For a Belgian beer, it misses a little bit the fullness that we find with other blond beer. But overall, a very nice beer, it sort of grew on me while drinking it. Interesting hop bitterness. Nice hoppy and herby aroma, hoppy aftertaste stays in the mouth for quite a while.

Bottle at 't Walhalla

A: Slightly hazy golden colour, white head.

S: Aroma of hops, malts, apricot and bread. Not really a typical IPA smell

T: A rather sweet flavour, light bitter and fruity. Bitter exotic fruits, grapefruit accompanied by grassy and floral noble hops.

M: Medium carbonation, soft mouthfeel, medium body.

O: Nice beer but I was expecting a more pronounced, in your face, hop presence. I think this is a rather good example of the style, nothing world class just a really decent and balanced offering from these youngsters.
