2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
2/II/14 - 75cl bottle @ Vintage Tasting, Brugs Bierfestival - BB: ? probably at least 10 years old (2014-158) Thanks to the person who contributed this bottle!
Clear dark orange to amber beer, big irregular off-white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very fruity, lots of peaches, orange peel, sweet malts, caramel. MF: soft carbon, medium to light body. Taste: fruity, lots of peaches, some orange candy. Aftertaste: marzipan, peach candy, bit sweet and sugary, some cardboard. Survived pretty well, but I’d rather have a fresh one. HEY, MOORTGAT, DID YOU HEAR ME? I WANT THIS STUFF DISTRIBUTED IN BELGIUM, instead of just the States and the Netherlands. (Pssst: I’ve heard rumours that as from this spring, it will be available in Belgium.)

750ml bottle 7/00-Pours a light amber with a small head. Aroma of fruits, hops, and caramel. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft shared by Tmoney99 (late summer 2011). Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, mild fruity notes, apricots, light tart character, mild spices, light yeast with lightly toasted bread. I thought that it became soft mid palate through the finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on draft at Zeno’s in State College PA this beer poured a murky tan-orange color with a medium sized foamy off white head that faded and left minimal lacing. The aroma was a bit tart with a bit of golden fruits and faint notes of yeast and pepper. The flavor was tart, dry and bitter with touches of peach, pear and bread dough. Medium length dry tart peach, pear and bread dough finish. Medium body. Ok.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Brasserie V. Hazy thick unfiltered orange-tan. Massive foamy off-white head. Malty, cherry woody amber malt and Belgian yeast centered. Medium bodied and pretty tame. Some mellow spice tones, orange, cherry esters. Not so memorable or impressive, a Belgian table-beer Amber. Reminds me a lot of Quebec beer in the malt tones.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy unfiltered peachy hued bread under a thin, tight white head which leaves light traces of lace in its wake.
Freshly sliced peaches and apricots. Cereal grains along the sides. Fruity spices. Curacao orange peel. Grains of paradise. Herbs and grass.
Smooth mouthfeel, light and fruity, refreshing. Delicate notes of fresh apricot, peach, and kiwi. Spice is more subdued than in the nose – a shadowy partner. Tropical fruit skins bitterness in the back.
Subtle is the name of the game here – subtle but not boring. Personally, I would prefer more oomph in the flavors present. That’s really the only part of this beer that is lacking. Don’t get me wrong though; I’d drink another if offered.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber pour with a white head. Banana, bread, and toasted malt. Nice pear, apple, and some hints of spice and yeast. Banana and bread flavor, some yeast, and a touch of spice. Very heavy on the apple and pear, sort of cidery. Kind of bland, but not bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark golden in color with a white head. The aroma of soft-white flowers is the best part of the beer. The flavor is soft at the beginning, the body is absent, and then a lingering of gentle bitterness does not welcome you back for another taste.
