3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy orange appearance with a big head. Spicy and peppery with insistent, but soft, hop presence. Lots of bittersweet, juicy fruit on the palate. Quite chewy. Very pleasant, but not earth-shattering.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazy amber beer with a huge orange head. The aroma is quite spicy with notes of coriander, yeast, muscat, and soap - is that what Joris calls aftershave? The flavor has a somewhat weird spicyness, though not unpleasant, it contains notes of muscat, yeast, brown sugar, and nutmeg - a bit on the spicy side for me. The end is dry, but it keeps prickling the tongue for a long while. It is a very lively beer, be very careful if You pour it in a Tulip glass - next time I’ll pour it in a Trappist glass. The livelyness also cost me a bottle - it simply blew the bottom of the bottle, while it was standing in my cupboard - I never had that happen before.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet fruity apple aroma. Amber color, enormeous beige head, good lace. Very sweet start and less sweet finish, pretty bitter that becomes even stronger towards the end, fruity apple, medium body. Quite nice but bitterness becomes nasty.
