4.24/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Look
Clear, golden tinged with orange
Smell
Floral, acidic fruit, mild spiciness - a strong and assertive bright smell
Taste
IPA/Belgian saison combination very much tilted away from the IPA end (tastes radically different than for example GF Le Freak) - light, spicy, bright with a slight tartness and a nod towards belgian yeast. The booziness is revealed as the beer warms up.
Feel
Light and easy, especially considering the strenght. Could be more carbonated.
Overall
Interesting, pleasant and enjoyable - the alcohol content is a surprise and without it this would be a great beer to have, repeatedly, on a summer evening - now only one or two.

330ml bottle served in a Tulip Duvel glass.

Strong Ale prepared with a big amount of American Citra hops and Belgian Saison yeasts.

A: Nice bottle art and beautiful color too. Pours a dark orange to amber color. A bit hazy. Forms a big and bubbled light yellow head. Medium retention and only few spotty lacings left in the glass. A thin yellow layer lasts for long time on the top

S: Fruity, herby and citric. Sweet and malty. Strong notes of orange, mango, passion fruit and pine in the nose. Earthy yeast profile. A bit boozy

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong bitterness. Notes of orange and tropical fruits like mango and passion fruit. Strong notes of American hops: citrus and piny (tons of Citra). In overall, a dry and bitter taste. Yeasts are quite earthy. Despite the Belgian yeast strain, the overall result is really particular. Really something in the between of a American DIPA and a Belgian Strong Ale

M: Heavy body. Medium carbonation. Fruity, herby and quite bitter aftertaste

O: Good drinkability. An authentic Bad Attitude: weird, difficult to define but, nevertheless, still pleasant to drink beer ;)
