3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
75cl bottle...one glass poured fairly clean, the second was full of proteins floating around...impressize head, white and puffy, one a golden hazy beer...incredible fruity aroma, very typical of the ADR beers...and very enjoyable. Drinks with a good body, and some sweetness...very fruity beer and actually quite yummy to me...it was a great change of pace after drinking 4 different gueuze beers.

Bottled. Citrus aroma. Golden color, clear! (strange for a white), good lace. Sweet, light bitter, grapefruit, soft yet sparkling. Very drinkable beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slighly yeasty smell, with a bit of something acidic I can’t quite place. It pours a few shades away from clear. This is a well carbonated, hoppy and yeasty beer.

Bottle. Copper colored with small bigbubbled head. Loads of floaties in the glass.Absolutely wonderful perfumy sweet, aroma. The flavor is close to peach, flowery and - again - some perfume. It ends with a bit harsch yeast bitterness Big mouthfeel and smooth bubbles.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow-brown, with some orange. Definately a lighter beer, but with a little more brown that is normal for the style. Head is a nice white foam, that has lasting power. Smells of spices, glazed donuts, cherries, pine and pit fruit. Taste is sour cherries, pineapple, dusty basement/clove spice, cedar, lemon and they are not lying about the peppery background. Aftertaste a little drying, carbonated and alcohol

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dried dark fruits and chocolate with herbal, orange-citrus hops. Opaque amber-brown with fizzy tan head that recedes to ring. Plenty of sediment regardless of how carefully you decant the bottle. Cookie dough, chocolate, tobacco leaf, pear, peach, plum, orange and banana notes in the very complex, fruity flavour with a sharp, crisp bitterness and lingering peppery spiciness in the mouth after a very dry finish. Medium-light body with moderate to strong carbonation that pricks the tongue and a soft, smooth texture. A very interesting, if non-traditional take on the style. Bottle (trade Aug. 2004). Thanks, JoeMcPhee!
