3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33l bottle from Etrè. This is a cloudy deep orange one with a nice big - almost fluffy and lasting just off-white top. Lot’s of fruity yeast on the aroma, green apples, champagne grapes, a little bit of dry flour and a classic Belgian aroma in the background. It’s lively on the carbonation with a nice slick mouthfeel. The taste has a nice Belgian yeast-fruitiness with a nice warming alcohol touch all the way. Some more apples and perhaps some sour strawberries? Anyhow, it’s quite tasty this. A bit alco-strong, but that suits it just fine. Ends with a soft peppery alco burn and a nice dryness. A fine blond. 05.11.2012

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours slightly hazy light honey color with a nice white head. The smell is nice, pineapple, some tart hoppy notes linger as well. Taste has the tart crispness from the hops, a nice mild malt backbone, tart fruit, crisp and dry on the end. Active carbonation but with fine structure, light/medium body. Overall a very tasty brew. I should have bought a few more!

33cl bottle. It pours an orange body with a huge foamy white head. The nose is characteristic citrus-orange, spicey. The flavour is strong too with a powerful yeasty and spicy taste, rich in fruit aromas with orange peel. Dry finish. Slight booze but also quite easy to drink. Great brew.
