A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had an amber color and a hazy consistency. There was a big, foamy, long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A very fruity aroma, with a good bit of yeast as well.

T: Tasted of hops (a moderate amount), yeast, malt, and light fruits like banana and passionfruit. A light and lively kind of flavor. Complex and tasty.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a slick finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A well made, very easy to drink brew.

Brewed at De Proef, and dry hopped with East Kent Goldings. They specifically don't call it an IPA, although it's on the verge of being a Belgian IPA in appearance and style. (Also, apparently known as their Anniversary Ale).

Tasted at 't Wagstuuk in Antwerp. Great little bar.

Hazed, deep golden colour. Big, thick, rocky frothy white head, that forms marvelously sticky, clumping lacing. Looks great.

Nose is grainy with amber, lightly coloured notes to it. Hops give a really pleasant touch of sharp passionfruit. Very nice basis of yeast, with that seedy, lively passionfruit notes. Very pleasant.

Taste is crisp and light with sharp, clean hop bitterness through the centre. Very light and amazingly, amazingly drinkable for a beer weighing in at 10%—there's just no hint of it. Crisp, light fruit, sweetness and an almost pilsener-like fresh grain note. Wow. It's maybe the most refreshing 10% ABV brew I've ever had.

Lovely brew. Half strong Belgian pale, half Belgian IPA with a phantom, impossible half of New World pilsener to it. It's perhaps just a bit too sweet, but certainly not boozy or astringent, but really nice characters, and supremely drinkable.

From cervezasespeciales. In Teku glass. Watching Sons of Anarchy 5x12. Tastes like a rancid multfruits juice and smells bad. However, the alcohol is well hidden
