Thanks to bierkoning for that one. Bottle looks good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts strong, a bit alcoholic, fruity hints of peaches. Finish more moldy, still alcoholic, a bit unbalanced. Spicy aftertaste. Okay.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 75 cl. Pours an orange brown with a small off-white head and a sweet aroma with ripe fruits, toffee and artificial peaches. The taste is a combination of heavy malts and artificial sweetness, reminding me of bubblegum, I also noticed some hints of citrus, caramel and licorice. There’s a tiny bit of bitterness in the finish, but this could have had way less sweetness and much more bite for me.

33 cl. bottle @ hoem, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Semi-clear dark amber with an off-white head. Yeasty spice nose. Sweet spices in the taste: cinnamon, cardemon, cloves. Some alcohol warmth in the aftertaste but overall quite gentle for a 8,5% ABV.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice label once again as with the Hopla one. 330 ml bottle, into a tulip glass.ABV 8.5%
Poured carefully, I got a beer with a clear body, although there are some bits floating around. Deep orange amber colour, with two fingers of white head, leaving very nice lacing on the glass, as tall as the foam once was.
Weirdily nice aroma, I get lots of spices but I can’t tell exactly what. Surely cardamon seeds, the rest reminds me of something but not sure what.
The taste is also full of spices, along with floral notes. Slighty bitter aftertaste. The alcohol very well hidden.
Medium thin body, fairly fry on the palate. Carbonation on very good levels.
Overall very tasty beer, I have had already two from this brewery and they were great, I see a great future lying ahead them.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Warm zoet aroma, karamel. Smaak is kruidig en vol, wat zoetige kaugomballen, prikkelend, met donkere bitters die lang blijven hangen. Kraag snel weg (temperatuur te laag).
