Very pleasant surprise this one. Hops are woody, pine and dark, and mix well with the light rustic smoke. Interesting for sure. Medium bitter, smoke is there as dark malts. Cool beer, glad to have tried. (33cl bottle from trade with Koelschtrinker, thanks!)

Flesje van de bierkabouter. Oranje/amber. Mooie kraag. Ruikt citrusfruitig, later meer moutig als het bier wat warmer is. Smaakt behoorlijk citrusfruitig, sinaasappel met name en bitter. Bittere sinaasappel nasmaak.

bottle from Bierzwerg. Cloudy amber-copper, creamy off-white head. Lovely aroma of tropcial fruit. Full-bodied, pleasantly malty and sweet to complement the immense hop flavours: bitter, resiny,with loads of fruit. Delicious and perfectly balanced beer with a smooth and velvety palate.

Hazy, deep golden color with a big and off-white foamy creamy head. Fruity aroma with notes of citrus, orange blossoms and a piney touch, accompanied by yeasty spice and hints of caramel and malt. Moderately bitter and slightly sweet flavor, medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Balanced fruity and piney hop taste with a malty base. Bittersweet and quite lasting finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Rudat, Dortmund; bottled 09/2013, bb 10.06.2014; 7% ABV
Dark amber color, hazy, with medium head. The caramel and hop aroma mix is very nice, with substance and with a light fruity touch. Good body structure, yet the mouthfeel is lean and the drinkability is there; caramel flavor with minimal sweetness, nice; quite strong bitterness, but well balanced; the hopping provides a very nice mix that includes oranges, lemon peel, chamomile.
Excellent, well brewed, fresh, balanced.
