2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Found this beer from 3 star restaurant Librije by accident in a delicatessen shop in Oldenzaal. It was the very last bottle, and the shopkeeper only asked 2,50 euros for it. Was it a bargain? Not really. Amber color, cloudy. Green tea, yeast, energydrink and hints of ginger in both aroma and flavor. Sweetish. Slightly herbal. Not unpleasant, but where are the malt and hops?

Cloudy orange. Fruity aroma. Sweet and grainy taste. A it tea like too. Overall enjoyable, but I don’t think it’s very special.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brewed for Librije, a 3-Michelin-star rated restaurant. Cloudy orange color, some chunks floating around, small head.Soft aroma of fruits like orange, some apple and hints of green tea and ginger. Malty and bit grainy taste, more bitter towards the end. Definitely green tea in the finish. Not much sweetness in this batch. Quite good actually. A colleague of mine brought it from the restaurant, but I don’t think he paid that much money and then just gave it to me for free ;-)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Aroma is sweet apple with hints of banana. Cloudy, dark yellow color, off-white head, good lace. Sweet, light bitter, fruity (apricot, apple), more bitter in the finish, green tea in the very finish. Sticky start yet dry finish. Certainly has some technical flaws. The one I got it from said you have to pay 18 euro for this beer in the restaurant. Certainly not worth it.
