3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Bought @ Kolding Vinhandel.
Pours a very hazy orange amber with a big frothy, bubbly, yellowish head. Aroma is grassy, citric, quite tripel-like. Lively mouthfeel. Flavour is incredibly dry and citric bitter - not at all off - but it sure is powerful. The manuka is very apparent and a nice addition to the brew. Lime-like is probably the best description. I kind of like it - but it should probably have been enjoyed on a hot summer day :o)

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle (One Pint Pub, Helsinki, Belgian Beer Week 2008)
Orange to brown, with a thin head. Sweet tropical fruit aroma. Slight coffee-like hint and a bit nutty maybe, and bitter. Slightly watery, but not in a negative way, itís not thin. Refreshing and full-bodied, lots of tangy nutty tastes. I donít know what manuka is, but it makes an interesting-flavoured brew.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Beer Circus, Croydon.
Nose of sweet spices and notes of typical belgian sweetness with the addition of a soapiness. Colour is cloudy burnt orange. Head is huge and foaming. Taste is sweet, with an initial hoppiness and taste of the what I assume is the manuka being strong, taste moves on to a very long and lingering slavo of hoppiness, malt and contrasts with the manuka. Finish is short and pleasant. A real rollercoaster. A great beer.
