Pedro_Tallieu (56) - Deinze, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2010
75 cl bottle. Pours cloudy amber with an off-white medium rocky head that sticks quite well to the glass. Hoppy and fresh in the nose with a hint of citrus (curaçao?) and a little bit yeasty. The taste is slightly bitter, slightly sweet and you can taste the coriander in it with a hint of citrus and herbs. The carbonation is smooth and this beer has a short aftertaste. A good beer to drink as a starter.

wimpie133 (380) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUL 19, 2009
Bottle, 75 cl, shared with friends. A light amber to brown-coloured hazy beer with a medium white head not lacing very well. The taste is herbal, psicy and strong and also has some notes of artichoke. There is a spicy taste which has the upper hand before the sweet taste comes to the foreground. The aftertaste is grainy and after a while also some notes of orange peel are noticeable. A very thirst-quenching, fluently drinkable beer, surprisingly good (which I didn’t expect for a beer made from a television-programme).

JorisPPattyn (7879) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 20, 2009
Medium, cream head over faintly hazed orange beer. Slightly oppressive malt nose initially, orangezeste, and strangely enough, alcohol. Quite "beery" nose. Dry rather liqueurish brew, with a marked carbonized mouthfeel. White candi sugar obvious, coriander thankfully less, even when it becomes more apparent warming up. Some vague nutmeg flavour retronasal, and more orangepeel. Medium bodied. Nothing extraordinary, but well-balanced flavours; easily drinkable. The TV-series is a near-must.

75 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a huge and frothy white head. Aroma is dry and phenolic aroma. Spiced and caramelish too. Smooth roasted malty and slight spiced flavoured with a nice roasted malt flavoured. Dry phenolic and roasted flavoured finish.
