3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from ABCBeers. Poured hazy orange. with a creamy white foam. Honey, apple, grapes, hints of cinnamon, and orange peel in the aroma. Medium bodied, with matching carbonation, overall well balanced. Lasting, fruity finish. I think a bit more hops would not hurt. Easy to drink, good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle from Secret Santa 2013/14. Mostly clear amber with a creamy slight off white head. Quite grainy, some peach, bit of sweet grapefruit, and somewhat stale hops. Moderate carbonation and body, quite astringent although it mellows towards the end and you get a somewhat balanced bitter IPA taste with a fair amount of grain and some odd stale caramel.

At a tasting, thanks MrHangover, light aroma of citrus flowers and orange marmalade. same traits in flavour with a citrusy bitterness. Drinkable but not exciting and certainly not hoppy enough.

1.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
75cl bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag, number 36/100 - shared at jimmyotx's London tasting. Straw colour with puffy white head. Promising peach and mango aroma... but then as soon as it's in the mouth it all goes wrong. Thin mouthfeel, hint of Belgian yeast character gives way to battery acid and metal, like sucking a penny. Ended up being poured away. Can only assume we had a knackered bottle?
