3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dorata, con poca schiuma di scarsa persistenza. Aroma tenue, fruttato e floreale. Nel palato intensa, mediamente amara, con una buona acidità.

6/X/2012 - 33cl bottle @ Modeste Bierfestival (Antwerpen) - BB: n/a (2012-1114)
Pretty cloudy orange beer, nice solid creamy white head, bit adhesive. Aroma: very yeasty, some yoghurt, white candi sugar, some grains, ripe to overripe banana, no honey though. MF: soft carbon, light to medium body. Taste: yeasty bitter start, citrus, little sweet, malty, bitter hops, but unpleasant. Aftertaste: grapefruit, very bitter hops, dry bit metallic. No honey detected...

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Sweet, somewhat spicy aroma. Head disappears instantly. Bitter flavour. Not much of a honey flavour.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge, fine & dense white head as whipped eggwhite; very well-carbonated hazed orange beer. Initially dusty nose, bit grassy, then going over into fresh green leaves, floral. In the end and aroma that might well be honey. Interesting, if a bit conflicting flavours: grain, straw, bitterish hops, herbs, and again something dusty-sweetish. Faintly toasted. Obviously veyr carbonated, and it seems very well fermented out, seen the near absence of sweetness. Tad fiery, medium bodied. Aftertaste carries again this flavour as main feature; mannah-like. Intertesting, and certainly with a lot of merit. But do we thrust honey from the big smoke? Many thanks to Stef!
