3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2011 Bottled. Yellow-golden, massively carbonating beer with some yeast-clouds and a large, stable, creamy, off-white head. It has an aroma with cellar, black-currant, sugar and some sourness. Flavor has a great deal of alcohol, and malt, fruityness, spicey hops a bit sourness. Medium to thin body and a finish with alcohol, some metallic notes and spicey hops. Rating: 5-4-6-2-12-2.9. 060619
On tap at the brewery. It pours a clear, golden body and a dense, white head. It’s fruity on the nose, with apricot, citrus and coriander, and pale malts. Some sugary notes too, but not much. It’s a bit warming on the palate, with a nice bitterness showing up towards the end. Apricot, citrus, some coriander and pale malts too. Full body and a pleasant carbonation. Although a bit too warming, even considering its ABV, it’s a pleasant and tasteful beer. 110430

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2010 Honey color. Honey and mandarin in the aroma. Sweetish and rather thin. Citric flavor. Raspberry esters. A touch of hop character coming up in the aftertaste. The alcohol is partly hidden by the sweetish flavor.
(7 3 7 4 12 = 3.3)
A bottle tasted in feb 2010 was very disappointing. An alcoholic and perfumed brew, with hints of plum. Yeasty notes in the finish. (5 3 5 2 9 = 2.4)
Rating is an average.

Bottle. Golden colour with lasting white head. Lemon, citric acid aroma with bit of wood. Alcohol strength in body, and its heat carries on to the end. Not keen on it. Alcohol is too evident.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear golden color with a thick white head. Ordinary aroma and flavor of coriander, citrus and yeast, feels a lot like a boring tripel. The palate is light and creamy and the carbonation is lively. It’s not very entertaining.
