3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught Quite good, dense white head over chromate-golden, very faintly veiled beer. Bit catty & citrussy hops, garden herbs, even wild hops. Cattiness returning in the flavour, with again the "buckwheat" streak. Rootspicy malts. Light to medium bodied, very slick. Flavour disappoints a bit.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Tilquin English Fest ’16, courtesy of and shared with the fine Belgian RB crew.
Fin orangée, col blanc crémeux.
Arôme est fruité, agrumes assez plaisant, rétro grains, le tout tirant sur un fleuri assez anglais, et léger tropical.
Palais est finement malté, fruité avec un houblonné fortement bien restitué offrant une tonalité d’agrumes et une base maltée qui couvre la fin.

Draft at Tilquin English Beerfestival. Lots of spices, no fruits noticeable, bitterness that's quite harsh and lingers on. Ok.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drank w Matt after flat viewing. Hazy light green-gold with fluffy white head. Smells nice: fruity sourness, lime, mango, passionfruit, heavy honey malt, moderate grassy hop. Taste slightly less interesting: moderate bitterness, light peppery spice, not much honey or fruit that was present in the nose, sort of like a grainier pilsner. Body is bitter, medium. Nice sourness in the nose. Taste more boring. Good overall.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had initially in KL but this time bottle from SIPS at home in HK. Hazy dark straw yellow pour with fluffy white head. Aroma is pleasant sour fruit bitterness. Taste is different - more biscuit malt and almost pilsner-like bitterness. None of the sour fruitiness from the aroma. Not bad but nothing special.
