3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Kris Wines. Colour is rusty amber, white head. Nose is orange blossom, tangerine, caramel, quite sweet. Taste initially menthol and pine bitter, nettles, then sweetness, almost sweet like a double IPA, lots of caramel and orange. Little musky and musty so not sure this is as fresh as it should be. Not as fresh citrous fruit bitter as I would expect. Not as fresh hoppy as I would expect.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice clear copper body with a white head that had great retention and nice lace. Aroma had caramel malts, both grapefruit and pine hops. Flavor had a nice sweet malt note, and the hops were nice and bitter, but not to the point of over powering the nice malt flavors. Nice and easy to drink went down easy, maybe too easy. Somewhat dry in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2016 4/4/2012 33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Slightly hazy golden orange colour, dense white head. Aroma of musty grapefruit, weed, dung, a bit mouldy, not very vibrant. Flavour is again musty grapefruit, light malt backbone, firm bitterness with grass and tea, fruity bitter mango and grapefruit finish. Medium bodied, slightly alcoholic. The aroma reminded me of an infected beer I had once from ’t Koelschip. Maybe this bottle didn’t travel well, I had high expectations and was willing to pay 5 euro’s for a bottle, but was seriously underwhelmed. 647313 Re-rate On tap at Borefts ’16. Much fresher, lots of grapefruit and weed, some pine, good IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml bottle. From brewdog.com.
Hazy orange amber colour with big fluffy off-white head.
Mildish fruity aroma with touch of hops and caramel.
Flavour is bitterish fruity with lots of alcohol and some maltiness. Far from fresh. But it should be quite fresh since it says JUL2511 and I guess that’s bottling date. Alcohol is getting stronger all the time. Hoppiness is rather subdued somehow. Still quite smooth.

Very interesting beer. Very fruity in the nose. Pours a wonderful golden amber with a decent amount of head and lacing. To its both sweet and bitter which is odd, but I like it.
