3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. Slightly hazy golden, huge pale head with solid lace. Great fruity nose, malt sweetness, grapefruit, white pepper, little banana, canned peach and Belgian yeastiness, lovely Chouffe-like notes! Flavor is similar, grapefruity hops, a tad chalky yeasty, pale malt, slight spritzy tartness. Soda-like attacking palate, not at all watery though. More a good hoppy Belgian than bitter to me, though slightly too yeasty despite a careful pour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (4:20, Rome)
Hazy orange, cloudy even, large head. Fruity hoppy aroma, some nettles, pretty sweet. Slightly earthy palate, big hoppy retronasals, and freezer ice, and more nettles. Very tasty for 3.5%, big on the de Molen fingerprint, and not a ’bitter’ in the usual UK sense.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl bottle. Murky dolden color, quickly diminishing head. Nose is very fruity with all sorts of exotic nuances to it. Flavor is dominated by fruits, but there is a certain backbone of bitter hops. Not bad at all.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange beer with huge white head. Great tropical fruits, mangos, peaches, some grapefruit and hint of soap in the flavour. Taste is quite similar than aroma, tropical fruits, peaches, some bitterness, but overally taste is quite light, probably because of low alcohol content. Light and high carbonation to drink. Great elements and aroma, but low alcohol content cause some weakness; still worth to try.
