3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A hazed blonde ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a rather strange mix of vegetal and pepper notes, cave, talcum, so-so. In mouth, a sweet malt with cave notes, grapeskin, Brett notes, a bit too sweet and creamy. On tap at A Night with Amsterdam and Friends, Feb 2 2013.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Bar Volo, a few days after the Amsterdam takeover. Though not the most popular at the takeover, it was interesting. More of a farmhouse fun funkiness, with a winey taste character. Above average mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer has originality. Smells like wine barrels and floral hops. Tastes even like wine barrels. Pours cloudy blond with some lasting head and not much lacing. Aroma has a little booze as well. Finishes with booze and wine-fruity sweetness. Great. Tap at volos.
