Picked this up at a great little beer store in Arlon, Belgium, Miorge Mihoublon. Cloudy golden-yellow pour with a two finger foamy white head with decent retention and great lacing. The nose is herbal and grassy with hints of lemon, grapefruit, subtle yeast, and straw. The taste lives up to the name with loads of bitter hoppiness along with hints of grass, lemon zest, white pepper, grapefruit, and subtle caramel sweetness. The mouthfeel is light bodied, sharp and tangy, with a refreshing crisp, bitter, dry finish. Overall, this was about what I had expected, considering that I had already had the XXX Bitter. Extremely bitter, but quite drinkable and very refreshing. And you can't beat the price for a beer of this quality. Wondering why I waited so long to try this.

Poured a cloudy yellowish golden body with great carbonation that gave a very large, foamy head, that died slow and left lace patches everywhere with a mild bitter hop aroma, I mostly picked up some funk and a little Belgian yeast. Smooth, lighter bodied, has this yeastiness on the edge that makes it pass easy on the tongue and gives a touch of sweetness. There seems to be sour/tart fruit flavors like green apple or pear and there is a nice bit of barnyard funk. Some minor citric hop bitterness adds a little spice to the beer, mainly the finish, and once in a while I get some fruit sweetness.
