A light golden orange coloured beer with a thk, but frothy white head. A sweet malty nose with a touch of wheat and a hint of hop. The taste is dry with a fizzy mouthfeel. Sweet biscuity malt flavour, with a wheaty, cereal taste that is accompanied by a touch od crisp hop in the finish. (Bottle - courtesy of Mark @ The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).

Tried this at the brewery. A nice strong light ale. Malty, sweet, yet crisp at the same time. Nice big head that had a tendency to overflow the glasses. Definately a good beer. Maybe one day I’ll try the other Straffe Hendrick beers.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BB May 09). Blonde with a bubbly white head. Sweet fruity with yeasty nuttiness. Full feel at the start with a slightly tangy finish which left a tingly bittersweet flavour. Malt character isnt too my taste in this beer slight sulphur character contributes to a lagery malt feel. Some interest but on the whole not great.

[Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm] Clear golden, rocky head. Vinous black currant dominate the aroma. Light bodied with sparkling mouthfeel. Has a fresh citric character, sort of wild yeast of Brettanomycaes type. Very interesting beer!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber with thick white clinging head. Sprightly carbonation tingles the tongue at the first sip and rises in a column from the center of the Begian goblet this was sampled from. Slightly sweet with a soft round mouthfeel, except for the tight bubbly carbonation. A fairly light body makes this an easy drinking Belgian ale. The yeast aroma is interspersed with citrus notes. A slightly sweet finish drapes over the sides of the tongue leaving a long satisfying afterglow.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This cloudy golden ale poured with a lacy white head, eliciting a citrus aroma. There is a thin spicy flavor, not unlike a typical Belgian witbier, but with a slightly sweet finish. There is no hint of malt, as one would expect in this style of ale. Drinkable, but not distinctive.
