In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


The Brew Gentlemen Beer Company Ligne Claire

Aroma: “Very aromatic, with a high hops aroma of orange and lemongrass and a slight American hops note, perhaps pine and light grapefruit. Low spice note in the aroma, and low malt presence. Slightly astringent aroma.”

Flavor: “Wonderfully fruity up front that transitions to a spicy, peppery bitterness. Medium malt sweetness that balances the hops well. Medium-to-high body and highly carbonated, which carries throughout the drink.”

Overall: “The grapefruit and lemon really shine through, giving this beer a refreshing taste. A nice spiciness is muted in the background. Carbonation is lighter than usual for the style, but does create an interesting creamy consistency. As this warms up the spiciness and the fruity esters become a bit more balanced.”
