3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 6.5%. Sweet, caramelly bonbon, hop aroma. Still, clear copper colour. Very small white head. The flavour has some teaish hop notes. There is a little sour bitterness, but nothing too bad. Thin mouthfeel. OK drinkability.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam) tag on bottle said 6.5%
6- Sweet fleshy fruity aroma. Anna gets peach, I get the tomato sauce you find in baked beans. Some sodium ethanoate acidity regulator too. As it warms, it becomes breadier, and loses the dodgier aspects.
3 Clear orange, almost no head
7 Lovely sweet fruity and spicy taste, with a decent bready backbone to hang the other components on. No trace of alcohol at all.
4 Smoothinsh palate, gentle carbonation, but with a nice tingle aided by the bitter noble hops. Finish is a pleasant glide from the sweeter caramelly and fruity aspects to the husky and dry, almost papery, hops.
14 The initial weird aroma when cold prejudiced me a little against this, but after a few sips I was hooked. I can imagine drinking pint after pint of this in summer time, despite the 6.5%

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2008 Malt and apricot aroma. Full bodied. Apricot flavor at first, followed by a strong maltiness and a fair deal of hops. Some licorice. Just a bit sweetish and a hint of alcohol. Lovely well balanced beer, emphasizing the fruity maltiness. Expensive ($ 5,- per half litre in the shop), but well worth the money.
From tap (Arendsnest Amsterdam) the beer disappointed somewhat. Traubenzucker in the aroma. Flowery flavor, somewhat perfumed. Reasonably well hopped and seasoned, just a bit on the sweet side.
I was also less satisfied with a bottle tasted in 2008. Orange color, slightly perfumed aroma of tangerine and coreander. Sweetish, perfumed spicy flavor. malt and coreander. Citrus fruit. Not unpleasant, but too perfumed for my taste.
