33cl bottle about 2 weeks past best by range.

Pours hazy copper with a durable, creamy tan head. The glass gets nicely coated with tipping. Some sediment remained stuck to the bottom of the bottle.

Aroma: more sweet malts, toffee, and Belgian yeast than hops.

Flavor: Like the aroma. Not really an IPA or even a Pale Ale, this is more of a Belgian Brown with a little extra hopping. Dark fruit notes and toffee linger on in the aftertaste.

Feel: medium body; medium, lively but semi-soft carbonation.

O: a very nice Belgian/Dutch brown ale.

Orange-yellow color, filtered, decent dense head.

Aroma is citrus, grass, yeast. Very hoppy, bitter ale.

Lime, orange, kiwi, more fruits than expected, with a refreshing carbonation. Soon, hoppy bitterness kicks in, but grainy yeast helps to keep the balance at bay, lime adds cpmplexity. Mouthfeel is dry, with a long bitter aftertaste. Very hop defined, still pleasant on the palate, nice. Carbonation adds metallic hints to the hops, making the bitterness even more present.
