3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Copper body and soapy head. Fruity aroma, spices, raisins and some alcohol. Drier than expected and with a sourness that I can?t find very attractive (although I usually like this). Bit too thin. Decent taste but great nose. (At the De Molen tasting)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22.4 ounce bottle - $9.99 at Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia. Best Before End: Nov 2012.
Appearance: Heavily clouded, orange-golden body with a foaming, rocky, off-white head. The bottle was not exactly a gusher, but, still, there was a steady surging foam over-flowing the bottle.
Smell: Hard butterscotch candies, malted wheat, a generous dusting of blood orange-flavored drink powder, and dried pine sap with a firm, fragrant backing of menthol-like florals.
Taste: Butterscotch brushed bready malts and straw-hinting wheat malt, though it’s never overly sweet, as the spicy hops, resins, orangesque citrus character, alcohol, mentho-lyptus phenols and a rubber band snap of carbonation balance things out. Medium-plus bitterness. Moderate acidity. More alcohol, fruit, and now some black peppercorn on the back half. Drying, zesty, foamy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. High carbonation. Slightly oily texture to the mouthfeel.
Overall: Extra Ordinaire? I dunno. It’s Extra Something, alright.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Flat-bottomed 660ml bottle. Fine-headed, heaped, spiralling orange..and that’s before it’s even left the bottle. Wafts aromatically with coriander-peppered wine gum; grain, blackcurrant, candied orange, lavender, a little urinal- a sackful of resonant, fresh, floral hops basically. Taste: cream zested with lemon, botanicals, juniper, sugared marmalade. Lean, floral and biting with a perfectly judged, sweet malt base. Bittersweet and perfumed. Another beauty from De Dochter.

Taste is very light sweet and medium bitter. Hoppy and yeasty notes. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Nice and hoppy, refreshing.

Hoppy flavor but not too bitter. I was expecting more aroma. I was only feeling the hop and a little bit of secondary tastes.
