lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - NOV 15, 2004
Hazy amber-orange color with thin bone like colored head. It has fruity aroma’s of peaches in canns and hints of burned caramel ( creme brulleé ) there are also hints of cinnamon, lavender, real english marmalade and black chocolate. This beer has a round taste with a fruitcake like caracter that turns into a unbalaced vegetalness ( Almost like thy have poured some green Chartreuse in it ). The mouthfeel is round and has hints of buttercakes, apricot jam, burned caramel and has a sweet bitterness of eucaleptine sirup. Strange afthertaste, is it the HOPS ?

Orange beer, fully hazy; dense, irregular, orange-tinted head. Marked sugar-caramely, and orange peel nose, as preserved confit orange parts. Taste is again very caramelised and orangey taste. Orange liqueur, but not very sweet, rather roasted, caramelised. Estery too. Retronasal some pine-like flavour, and warming up strawberries and ginger. Well-bodied; slick & creamy mouthfeel. Burning sensation. I just don’t get it. They call themselves H.O.P., put a hopcone on the green label. If I read well, there’s 4 different hops in the beer. AND I CAN’T TASTE ANY of them. Also, Wyeast from the USA was used. Why not some tons of American hops, for a change (or a taste). Why are we so afraid of hops, for crying out loud?

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2004
Lemon and apple aroma. Cloudy, large beige fine head, good lace. Very sweet, light sourness, pretty bitter, apple, fruit, herbs and a little yeasty. Finish is a little dry and warming. Nice beer but too sweet to drink a lot of it.

Hildigöltur (5105) - København, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2004
Hazy golden coloured with big white head.Nice, but slightly weak aroma of fruit and some yeast. The flavour is fruity, grassy and yeasty. High carbonation.
