Too much lemon and orange that almost hides the actual beer. No bitterness and/or hops.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 750ml corked and capped brown bottle (nice packing like all the beers from this brewery). This is a decent attempt to emulate a Belgian stye strong golden ale of which Duvel is the benchmark. Appearance is clear bright yellow with a large dense white head that provides a decent lace. Nose has honey, grains, straw, citrus fruits (oranges mainly), bread, earthy yeast and a hint of peppery spices. Flavours are dry and bittersweet with a subtle orangey and leafy presence. Quite an astringent alcoholic dry finish. Medium to full body with lively mouthfeel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Of the three, "32" beers that I have had this one looks the prettiest. Almost like an orange creamsicle. But has the least likeable flavor profile. I get wheat and vanilla and a tiny, tiny bit of funk and a bit of medicinal notes. Not bad as the score would say but I prefer the Oppale so far.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy gold with a fading head.
Nose shows banana, soft cinnamon, caramel, bready malt, doughy yeast. Enticing.
Flavours focus on the malt - caramel, bready malt, doughy yeast, banana. Also some booze.
A bit too much carbonation.

Bottle at DOC Melbourne. Great yeasty beer, well balanced. Aromas of caramel, honey, citrus, bread. Taste is sweet, sour, and bitter; well balanced, and very long. Palate is creamy, full bodied. Yellow, cloudy, with a frothy head.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle - shared by Mirjukka and Janne - thanks!
Hazy, pale, brief head - fizzy but self supporting. Massive estery vapours, clearly alcoholic, but actual alcohol taste is hidden behind the banana. Slightly bready light grains, pretty yeasty, dry papery hop finish. Some zet too, perhaps orangy, but I only say that as curacao was already vocalised elsewhere round the table. A little raw. Finish quite fruity - fair bit of apple. Perhaps too alcoholic. With more yeast it doesn’t change too much except to become very cloudy.

Bottle at Taste Firenze. Dry, mineral nose with pears and apricots. Fruity flavor with stewed peaches and a dry finish. Tasty, but Atra was better.
