Koperkleurig oranje bier met een dikke witte schuimkraag.
Aroma: fruitig (boom fruit zoals appels en abrikozen en druiven), gist en brood, kruiden en alcohol.
Smaak volgt het profiel van de neus: licht fruit, zoete mout, citrus.
Gemiddeld mondgevoel met mooi koolzuur en zachte afdronk.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark golden appearance with some creamy head. Complex tastes of brown sugar, caramel and dried banana. Heavy body, smooth carbonation and a finish of dried banana. Good, but not overwhelming

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden colour with a thick foamy head. The aroma has some citrus notes, yeast and sweet fruits. Aroma is mostly bitter, some banana and apricot. The bitterness stays long time in the mouth. Full-bodied. Completely enjoyable, but I personally would prefer the red to this.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. Hazy golden color, small white head. Lively carbonation. Aroma of grape and fruits, some notes of malts and yeast. Some alcohol as well but it well hidden. Full bodied. Nice medium sourness, light to medium sweetness and medium bitterness. Really good.
