3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle bought at Castello Del Vino in Admirality.
Looks: Cloudy hazy straw golden honey colour with traces of yeast sediments; Near zero head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds. Fairly good sticky lacing with barely detectable slight carbonation.
Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet malt, with strong orange, strong floral, pineapple, vanilla, plums, strong wheat, strong molasses, earth, spices, bread, strong Bel yeast and lemon.
Taste: Medium sweet malt, with strong marmalade, strong floral, wheaty tartness, sugar, earth, strong spices, strong dry biscuits, strong yeast, lemon, medium bitter hops and grass.
Body: Mid to light. Dry, thin but slick palate.
Mouth Feel: Strong biscuity malt in a fairly watery but slick background. Lots of jammy orangey goodness abound (Pacifica?) with strong floral and nice fruity sweetness. Dry and yeasty , quite spicy than rounded with pretty sharp lemon. Fresh and nice!
Hoppiness: Strong orange, strong floral, earth, spices and lemon in nose. Strong marmalade, strong floral, earth, strong spices, lemon and grass in taste. Bitterness is fairly strong for an abrupt, mid to high astringent sweet bitter finish.
After Taste: Dry. Floral sweet and quite bitter to mouth.
Comments: My goodness, this one is a fusion Belgian Ale with strong vanilla estery base fused with lorry load of Pacifica-like hops for very pleasant jammy fruity aroma and taste, backed with sharp hoppiness. Itís sweet, low on head and looks, but the orange blossom taste is simply irresisitable. A keeper!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 0,33L. Slightly hazy, orange/copper colour with average big, frothy, off-white head. Nice fruity aroma of orange, tangerine, pineapple and some caramel. Taste starts light sweet with orangade note, became bitter for a moment and finish moderate sweet. Medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation. Too sweet for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. It took an aggressive pour to generate a small, frothy, mostly fading beige head atop a slightly hazy deep amber body. Spicy malts, orange peel, lemon and floral, estery yeasts that are open, fresh and fragrant across both aroma and to taste. Light to medium body, soft to medium carbonation and a soft, low intensity, short length bitterness to finish thatís otherwise succeeded by a tangy fruit, bready malt and yeasty aftertaste. Could be immensely sessionable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy amber color with medium creamy off.white head, nice lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of yeast, dark fruits, cereals, caramel and candy sugar. Taste starts with refreshing fruity acidity, follows by sweet caramel, dandelion syrup and honey, while finish is slightly bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture and lively carbonation in palate. It reminds me on "innamorata", but Iím not so madly in love with this beer, although itís a good one,,,
