3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Hazy golden color with lots of flowing yeast particles. Sweetish, slightly fruity (pear) and hoppy aroma. Fruity, slightly sour and acidic flavor. Medium-bodied palate with balanced carbonation. A decent, hoppy Belgian, but not earthshaking.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2005 Light orange color, hazy. Hoparoma, somewhat dusty with vanilla. Sweetish, very hoppy flavor, almost creamy with vanilla. Great quality beer, not as deep and complex as Contreras Mars, but with a very fine taste.
Tap, Café de Engel Oldenzaal. Malty aroma. Malty sweet buttery flavor, with loads of mango and peach. Lemon and vanilla. Hopbitterness comes up and persists in the aftertaste. Lovely!

Golden coloured with much sediment. Aroma of apples. Fruity and sweet flavour with red apples. This beer sold out on the first day of Karakterbierweekend 2004 in Vichte before I had tasted it, but fortunately they went to the brewery to get some more.
