3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. It pours hazy orange with a huge fluffy off white head. I don’t know what the Dutch Brewers do with the yeast but almost any pale ales have this huge head. The aroma is fruity hoppy with spicy floral notes. Citrus, sweet fruit, light spice and lighter yeasty notes. Tasty.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cooper-coloured beer, slightly hazy, with lots of bubble columns and a beautiful foamy head. Quite radiant. Smell is fruity, from honey-sweet peach to sour grapefruit. Mandarines, strawberries, very crisp.Taste is well balanced sour bitter with a hint of salt. Nice fizz. Finish is dry and sticky, leaving a grapefruit peel numbness. A little to dry in the finish and I miss the fruitiness form the nose in the taste. Nice beer thou!
