3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2008 The Lure:
Citrus and banana soap washing the trunk of a pine tree. A tantalizing perfumy, flowery aroma which succeeds in not getting too far away from its intent. Great lasting foam too from this bottle.
Portly bubbles transport the citrus fruit, bananas and coniferous flavors follow the shampoo suggestions of the aroma. Sweeter than drier, this special champagne beer becomes rather easy drinking once you get accustomed to the soapy, perfumy originality, and when you embrace its subtle wooden hop bitterness in the end. But it might put you off due to its unbeery qualities.
Exotic desserts can be as fun as they are sickening.

A hazy dark yellow beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is weird - and I can’t really put words to it, but what springs to mind without being a perfect description are notes of citrus and anise. I wonder if it is the yeast that gives it the weird aromas. The flavor is very sweet and very spicy combined with notes of citrus.

Bottled. Hazy golden coloured. Flowery and yeasty aroma with notes of apples. Very sweet flavour with perfumy and soapy notes and a rather harsh bitterness in the finish. Strange.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dutch Ratebeer Meeting. Cloudy yellow coloured, big head. Artificial cirtus aroma, bit weird. Very distinct flavour, i’ve never really had anything like it. Bit there’s this weird artificial flavour that spoils the fun a bit. Original, but not great.

Pours a huge head. Pale and cloudy. Aroma like a lemon detergent, but maybe I like lemon detergents...
Lemony, somewhat soapy flavor. Some grapes. Absolutely dry.
