From a 750 ml. bottle acquired and sampled on May 13, 2022.

The appearance is lovely with its foamy head over the orange-amber appearance a slight cloudy character.

Unfortunately, this beer god skunked I think because right away in the aroma, I pick that up. beyond that, there is a breadiness, a light spiciness, and a vague fruitiness.

Mouthfeel is in the high medium range with some acidity.

The taste is sweet, bready, and slightly spicy. Clean enough finish. It's not bad but not something I will have a second time.

750 ml green bottle, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. ABV is 6%. Golden colour, slightly hazy. Large white head. Pleasant aroma of spicy Belgian ale yeast and herbal hops. Fizzy mouthfeel. Distinctly bitter flavour with plenty of herbal hops, slightly dry, also notes of spicy yeast. Very sharp bitterness in the aftertaste.

De Belgiuminabox. En copa Teku. Leyendo sobre PERT. Excelente ejemplo de IPA belga. Aún embotellada en noviembre de 2019 (pero caduca en 2021), el lupulo sigue dandole un toque herbal y un feel muy agradables que se integran a la perfección con un perfil de belgian blonde nada edulcorado

Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of huge dry hoppy notes with some herbal and grassy notes which is very enjoyable. Taste is also dominated by grassy hoppy notes with some herbal notes with some hay notes and a dry finish. Body is pretty full for style with good carbonation. I loved the hoppy profile which is very different then what you get from American style IPAs.

750 ml capped bottle bought at Liquor Shed.

Excellent head of foam sitting on a orange gold liquid, lacing and head retention..excellent.

Nose is of spicy and fruity hop bitterness. Flowery and I have to say, the spice is very mild. Citrus is not ignored.

Light citrus, spice, biscuit malt, smoother than a baby's butt..the tastes put you in a sit back and enjoy mode. Probably the greatest asset this hoppy Golden Ale gives me.

Smooth bodied, due partly to the low level of carbonation. I don't expect to encounter many burps drinking this beauty.

I think that this was around the $14 mark. No regrets.

Bought the bomber during a visit to Austin at a shop that had a small but choice selection of beers.

Poured into a small fluted glass. Beautiful foamy head and great curtain lacing atop a fairly cloudy yellow body. Refreshing smell. Taste of lemon, honey, and pepper. Some nice earthiness to the beer. A great table beer.

On draft. Served in a wine glass. Slightly cloudy golden yellow body, orange hue, one finger white head, fair retention, not much lacing. Smell and flavour are fairly hoppy, with an assertive floral and herbal hop component, peppercorn, lightly toasted malt, light leather and hay. It's a hoppy saison through and through. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, good carbonation, dry finish.

Real good bitter bite with the yeast esters playing off that bitterness very nicely. Not much to it other than that, but it does beat XX in terms of bitterness.
