Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Joes. Clear medium orange color, medium sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, slightly a hint of sourness. A bit hard to describe, but for sure it’s unclean.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It has a nice golden amber color with a slight haze. The head was crazy big, white in color and foamy with stiff peaks. It had a very long retention time and left cool lacing on the glass. The aroma is full and has notes of sour apples and pears with earthy/funky Belgian yeast and doughy malts. It has a sour funky favor with some fruity esters as well. The first sip has a puckering affect on the palate. Then there is a dry earthy yeast flavor with some doughy malts and light fruity esters that give it some nice complexity. The body is light to medium with a somewhat thin texture that is alive with carbonation. Overall I really enjoyed this ale. It had a nice refreshing character that would work very well with a light lunch, sea food, mild cheese or fruit.

Beer looks and smells allright. Orangy, light amber color and a nice big head. The flavor on the other hand is not the one i expected from an amber ale at all. Tastes very sour and weird. Didn’t finish teh bottle.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Gusher! Pours clear enough though, amber with a good sized-white head. Aromas of honey, malt, light sour note, yeast. Taste has all this, but it doesn’t gel well, and finishes quite thin. OK.
