very turbid white golden color. Dank nose with overripe mangoes and pineapple. Medium carbonation, low bitterness, very dry and lacks a bit of body. Nice hop character but not nearly as dank as it was in the nose. The lower than usual bitterness and higher than usual carbonation make this a bit less appealing. Still at 5% it comes across as very quaffable. The hops make this interesting enough. Clearly a beer for the masses and sold in masses and should be a crowd pleaser. Not bad at all but not hardcore enough for geeks.
hazy medium purple color. Nice fruity hascup character, slightly tart with nice funkiness from the yeast. Very fruit forward with nice hascup character then the saison comes in with nice soft hoppiness, slight yeastiness. Very dry and light bodied. Finish continues to show a lot of hascup. Pretty good but it was slightly warming in the finish which for 7% was surprising.
hazy amber golden color. Dank nose with lots of pineapple and citrus notes. Low-medium carbonation, pineapple mango lychee and citrus notes. Medium bitterness. Modestly juicy. Nice depth as it warms. Mouthfeel is just ok. Likable not lovable
clear golden color. Loose white head. Not much lacing. The kiwi and lychee are really pronounced with nice crackery malt character in the nose. Clean crisp, aggressively bitter, refreshing with nice hop character. The kiwi is the most sharp which I find is a rare character for any style of beer. Perfectly balanced and dry. Winning all the way
'44cl can, canned 06/02/2020, BB 06/11/2020.
Dorée paille, léger trouble revient en fond de cannette, col fin crémeux blanc.
Arôme est houblonné plaisant assez fleuri avec une belle note d'herbes fraîchement coupée - gazon avec pollens. Rétro fin de pin.
Palais est léger, malt fin cara pâle pils, pin en rétro avec petite touche terreuse. Impression de forêt conifères. Garde un caractère classique, plus que bienvenu dans ce monde de neipa, de lactose, ici une approche très US rappelant Sierra Nevada et autres californiennes.
lots of apricot and citrusy. Full body crackery malt, but bitterness with mangoes, apricot and grapefruit character. Modestly dry. Well balanced. Super west coast. Not one of their best best but by itself it’s solid
beautiful red mahogany color. Big dried strawberries grapefruit cherries apples crumble. Great depth, big bitterness could use more malt backbone and be less dry, but amazing depth. The malt character is also great. Not perfectly balanced but fuckin great red ipa
super turbid. Very funky nose. Dry, burnt plastic, stewed apples, herbaceous nose. Very funky. Modestly tart. Super well balanced. Funky yeasty. Excellent
pitch black color. Light brown head. Big bourbon, vanilla, coconut,
Dark chocolate, burnt raisins and caramel. Big bourbon, dark chocolate, vanilla, coconut, caramel, graham crackers,. Boozy. Modestly sweet, balanced, delicious.
hazy mangos and pineapples very dank nose with lots of oats and some lactose notes. Low carbonation low bitterness. Dank and juicy. Yum yum.
slightly hazy golden color. Grapefruit pine and crackery malt. Slightly sweet maltier backbone than expected but works well. Fairly heady Medium full body. Low medium carbonation Big bitterness. Well balanced. Super drinkable. Very nice

Pretty clear orange beer, small creamy off-white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: infected, overripe fruits, some banana, rotting oranges, funky, cat piss, doesn’t smell too promising. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: very soapy start, unpleasant bitterness, some grapefruit. Aftertaste: more soapy bitterness, is this supposed to be a brett ipa? It’s not a very good beer, I didn’t like it at all, totally unlike the Anni beer which was great!
Paired with garlic butter grilled lobster, but didn't work together well. It paire much better with the Anni beer.

15/XI/19 - 75cl bottle @ Tilquin taproom (Rebecq), BB: n/a, 160 bottles only - (2019-1824)
Clear ruby red beer, practically no head. Aroma: sweetish, fruity, pomegranates, roses, a little funky. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: nice acidic start, very fruity, some berries, super sourish, lemony, dry, some pomegranates (must be the hibiscus flowers, but I’ll be honest, it’s not something I often eat :p ), lovely stuff. Aftertaste: dry, nice acidity, lemony, bitter touch, fruity, berries, lovely stuff.
pitch black color. Creamy white head. Amazingly sweet nose of brandy, oak, dates, raisins, dark chocolate , saltines and slightly alcohol heat but wow that is a fantastic nose. Low carbonation, modestly sweet. Brandy soaked chocolate with a touch of oak. Excellent
