3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 1999 vintage. Hazy orange colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is really fruity along with some toffee and mild acidic notes. Also quite big hops notable. Flavour is very much toffee (fudge) along with some mild grassyness and spices. Also quite flowery notes. Smooth and wellaged.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled (1999 vintage) at Man in the Moon, Stockholm Lightly hazy amber, rich head. Surprisingly fresh floral hop aroma. Dry and very light bodied. Very light vanilla- and crackr-like malt, briefly touched by oxidized flavours of mustard and paper. Finishes with some grassy/spicy hop bitterness. Given it’s low gravity it has helf up astoningly well. Would stil be a good summer beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma is fresh, grassy, and spicy. The color is a clear amber and it has a beutiful white head. The flavor is sweet, malty, and spicy. It ends on a dry grassy and hoppy note. The body is somewhat thin - must be because of the low ABV by Belgian standards

I was fortunate enough to have one of these in Antwerp. It was quite nice. Hazy golden with a long lasting white head. Sweet with a spicy hop aroma quality that was very surprising. Medium-full bodied. Spicy taste that lingers for a minute and then is gone.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottled, 2001 vintage @Kulminator) Slightly hazy golden (opaque brownish with the huge amount of yeast found in the bottle) with a medium, lasting and lacy head. Sweetish-caramely, surprisingly fresh, camomile-hoppy aroma. Very strongly hoppy, crisp flavor. Hops are very well preserved, turning the brew into a sweet-flowery hop soup. Very nice palate for a 4.5% brew! Medium-bodied, refreshing, low-carbonated, slightly acidic. An excellent, hoppy brew with a pleasantly low abv. Wonder why they quit brewing this...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Goldtwins for this one.
Starts off by pouring a huge off white head over a hazy yellow body.
Lightly sweet malt aroma, some hops. Some acidic notes also.
Very light palate delivers a thin, refreshing beer with very few outstanding flavors.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on 8/24/05: Semi-hazy golden bronze color has a wispy white head. Lightly spiced and oxidized aroma has a touch of tartness. Semi-full body has some earthy cardboard and mild sweetness with a nice spice balance. Has aged fairly well, but not a beer to be keeping to 2024 like the bottle said.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - sampled from goldtwins bottle, which by it’s expiration date on its side, looks like it is designed to outlast most household pets. Cloudy hazy orange pour. Spicy lemon aroma and very light malts, with a touch of sour. Light malt and light fruit flavors, lemony, and some spice. Oxidation a little evident. A bit acidic, kinda tough to drink a whole lot a once for me.
