lusikka (5325) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 11, 2014
660 ml bottle. Rated on 11.4.2014. Pours a hazy orange colour with a white head. Aroma is very sweet with notes of apricot, white grapes and some harsh grainy notes. Flavour of sweet maltiness, wood, apricot, mild bitterness, yeast and spiciness. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. Way too sweet for this style.

DwarfeD (682) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2014
660ml bottle at home. Pale orange with a medium white head head. Medium body with light to medium carbonation. Well balanced sweet, bitter and medicinal taste. Juniper, herbs, yeast, wood, flowers and fruits. Wow, this beer is amazing! The juniper is quite present, but in a very balanced way, which gives this beer quite a smooth taste. Love to see more of these "light" barrel aged beers.

Mooie oranje kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt mout, bloemig, honing, hop en iets zoetig. Smaakt fruitig, bloemig, hop, bitter en iets zurig. Beetje creamy afdronk.

Fruity aroma, misty goldenyellow color with a bright white form foam. Fruity taste, hoppy aftertaste and a undefined slightly woodlike middel taste. Rich, complex beer, though fresh and refreshing.

Hazy gold beer with a good fluffy white head. Light palate, semi dry with fine carbonation. Despite it’s 8 months on Jenever barrels, this is a fresh tasting beer! Light bretty orange and tangerine. Nice Jenever sweet and spicy tang. Comes together very well before the semi dry finish. What a pleasant surprise, a tasty BA beer which does not have an abv off the scale!
