2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear orange golden colour, white head. Aroma of alcohol, fusel oils, fruit syrup, strange malty. Quite bitter flavour, salty liquorice (salmiak), wood, wood varnish, coriander seeds, malts. Bitter finish, some caramel, some liquorice.
Strange beer. Judging from the other ratings Iím guessing itís an off bottle. Warrants a re-rate.
(From 33cL bottle @ home. From trade with Bierkoning. Thanks!)

Bottle. [thanks bierkoning]
Hazy orange amber with a big, creamy, off-white creamy head. Aroma has red berries, light tartness, esters, some caramel. High, lively carbonation, fairly creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is quite sweet, sugary caramel, light vinious, herbal bitter. Some spiciness and a lingering dry finish. Okay.

Blond, hoppy beer, very well balanced. Fruity, a bit spicy too, nice malty aftertaste. This is just a great beer. I tasted it in Hellendoorn, where it is sold in the local supermarket.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big (off) white head that disappears slow, on top of a light cloudy orange amber colored beer.
Smell is a fine mix of malts, barleys, sweets, liquorice, dough, cookies, something wood/whisky/oak ish in the taste. Good smell.
Taste barleys, fruits, some sweets, more bitter, good bitter, herbs, grass, alcohol, nuts, warmth.
Long warmth malty bitter aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light sticky texture between creamy and light watery.
The smell is really good, the taste a bit strong alcoholic, light dry and spicy, just a tiny bit unbalanced but not bad at all.

Thanks to bierkoning for that one. Bottle looks very simple. Beer in the glass deep golden, nice head. Starts malty and dry, a bit yeasty. Gets more and more fruity like apricot, modest sweet. Interesting!

Special thanx to Bierkoning!!!
Orange-brown color, very cloudy. The beer foams up very strongly. Strong smell of aroma hops, slightly fruity, pleasantly sour. Starts with a lot of aroma hops, the spiciness is awesome! Fruity-sweet middle, again with decent spiciness, slightly sour, with strong yeasty aromas. Yeasty and fruity-sour finish, again with lots of aroma hops!! Finally, the beer leaves a scratchy feeling on the tongue!
