3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Hazy amber colour with huge, beige head leaving traces of lacing. Fruity, malty nose with apricots, grapefruit, citrus peel, flowers and yeast. Fruity, malty taste with notes of citrus (grapefruit and orange), dried apricots and spicy, citrussy hops in the finish. Medium body, rather sweet. Nice and well made beer. In short: spicy citrus on solid malt foundation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
6.5% bottle from…who knows where? Orange amber mist, slim white lid pimpled with yeast. Slick and silky spruce and citrus, rub of soap. Tangy marmalade and pine aroma ripe with hops and yeast. Honeyed coniferous hop, orange rind, peat, biscuit, sturdy finishing bitterness. Probably coriander, but discreetly backseat to the hop flavours. Garden herb, chick pea, wholemeal afters. Could happily see off a few of these. No frills, tangily hopped Belgian sessions.

Pours hazy orange with a fine, creamy, lightly yellow head. Aroma has oranges, some hay and barnyard. Yeast and light overripe apple as well. Medium carbonation, a bit light mouthfeel. Flavour is mildly tart, good caramel, some apples again. Light spiciness in the warming and surprisingly hoppy finish.
