3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2008 Draught at the Arandsnest, Amsterdam. Bright copper color with creamy head. Sweet parfumy aroma with orange, pepper and spices. The same elements are present in the taste along with berryish twist, malt, vanilla and some buttery taste. Very tasty and balanced.
Tasted again from bottle in December 2007: Less fermentation aromas and flavors, more malt and caramel 6-3-6-3-13. The draught sample was definitely better.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden colour. Pours with a big head. Spicy hop aroma. The sweetness is (over-?)balanced by almost harsh bitterness. The body is more than medium and it is soft on the palate. A better than average blond, though the flavour does not quite live up to expectations from the appearance and the aroma.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Medium off white head, disappears really slow and a leaves a closed off white lacing on top of an dark orange darker amber colored beer.
Smell barley, barley malts, soap, shampoo, soapy barley wine.
Taste is a very nice mix of barleys, barley malts, some hops and floral hop bitters, herbs, autumnal herbs, floral herbs, mint herbs, some darker fruits and sweets but just a hint. Very nice balanced.
Aftertaste of low bitterness with a barley and batley malted sweetness. Nit sweet but nicely balanced, again.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, good medium bodied and a light watery light creamy texture.
This is a nice beer, specially when watching a band play, could absorb liters of this stuff easily.

Bottle thx to benzai. Light amber to golden colour with a decent, soft creamy white head. Smells barnyard, some orangepeel, malts, some ’cheap asian pilsener’ notes. Tastes malty, bit fruity but not very fresh. Not bad, not great. Good carbo, medium body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden bodied with low carbonation and off white small head. Medium sweet aroma from the caramel and peach like malts. Some added cinnamon and cardamon spices. White Raisins as well. Taste starts spicy sweet, like cookies or spiced pie. Later the bitterness is more pronounced. It doesn’t have many dimensions and generally doesn’t hit the right spot for me. Malty and hopless can be okay, but this one doesn’t convince. (50cl bottle from my secret Sinterklaas, thanks!)
